Butterfly Flourished Heart - Valentine - In A Perfect World - Easel card

Yogi here today and Christmas is over at last... and I thought I'd work on the next significant card making event - Valentine's.

I'm using a quote and sentiment stamp from Quietfire Design ("Calligraphic Love Bits" 5pce set); ("In A Perfect World..." 4pce set)

And am using a couple of Suzanne's electronic files available on Silhouette onLine store. Click images to purchase.
Scored, and folded my red textured cardstock to create my easel card structure (card size: 7"w x 5"h). Cut another piece from the red same size as card, adhered to front.

Opened SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot software) and the Heart Butterfly Flourish file. Removed the card base image. Increased size of Heart/Butterfly to 6.7" x 4.5". Selected all and copied/pasted a 2nd image on my mat.

Opened the "Hugs" and increased size to 5"w x 1.9"H. Copied and pasted and selected "Shadow" style.

Cut everything from white cardstock. removed one of the Heart/Butterflies from the mat, cut away the butterfly flourish (keep for later) and inked the heart with Archival "Vermillion" ink pad, clear embossed. Set aside.

Colored the butterflies using Faber Castell Pitt pens and cut away from the vine.

On the other Heart/Butterfly colored the butterflies with the same colors as above. Adhered the cut away butterfly - bodies only. Using an embossing pen, inked the wings only and embossed with Emerald Creek Iridescent Shimmer embossing powder.

Adhered a piece of white "Coral Reef" paper to the card front and then the Heart Butterfly Flourish. 

On the floor:

Inked the "Hugs" using Versafine "Toffee" and embossed with Queen's Gold embossing powder. Inked the shadow layer with the Vermillion and clear embossed. Adhered both layers together and inked with Versamark and clear embossed (this gives a shiny layer to the gold layer and helps adhere the two layers together. Score and adhere to floor to act as a stopper.

Stamped the "Valentine" and the quote on white cardstock using Versafine Black Onyx and clear emboss. Sponge some Distress "Fired Brick" around edges and adhere to floor.

Add some flourish pearls
