I chose an Always Artichoke card base which has some texture. The glitter designer paper is from Sweet Dreams Holiday Avenue by My Mind`s Eye. It was trimmed to leave a small border. I cut a length of blue seam binding and placed it just left of center and taped the ends to the back of the designer paper.
I cut a large heart from red velvet paper with the Sizzix Hearts#2 thin lits. I cut some warm white card stock with the next size down. I cut one from the smallest size, placed onto the white one and used a push pin to create a pierced heart shape.
I used a red crystal brad to hold the heart element onto the card front.
I designed the greeting and color printed it onto warm white card stock. I fussy cut the greeting banner and adhered it to the card front with 3D foam tape.
