Heart Fireworks - Love Script - Love Is Friendship - Side Easel

Yogi here today and making a last Valentine's Day card... A real easy peasy one...

I'm using an A Way With Words dies  "Baby/Love Script" 2pce set from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE but go ahead and use the love word that comes with the cutting file.

I'm also using a quote stamp from Quietfire Design ("Love Is Friendship...")
 

Also using an electronic cut file from Suzanne available on Silhouette. Click image to purchase. 
https://www.silhouettedesignstore.com/view-shape/246394
Opened the Silhouette file and moved the text off the mat. Increased the size of the fireworks to approx 6.5"w. (click on image to enlarge)
 
From my image library - opened a half circle image and surrounded the fireworks - sizing it to approx 7"w x 4.5"h.

Selected one of the hearts and increased it's size to approx 2.75"w x 3"h

Cut all from white cardstock. While on the mat, sponged Distress Oxides on the Fireworks piece all over, then swiped my "Fired Brick" pad over the surface to give some variation to the background.

Removed the negative pieces from the fireworks and applied double sided tape to the backside of all the fireworks. Sprinkled with a Warm Highlights glitter. Burnished.


 
Removed the hearts and applied double sided tape to the backside of the hearts, flipped over and sprinkled with a red glitter, being careful to stay away from the previous applied glitter. Burnished. Adhered to another half circle piece.

Die cut the script word "Love" from a red metallic cardstock (recycled Bernard Callebaut Chocolate box... empty of course BIG GRIN)


 
Created the easel structure - top image on above cutting mat. I added a small square to the half circle (approx 1"sq) and welded it together. Scored the little square diagonally from the lower right corner to the upper left corner. Adhered the backside of the Fireworks piece to the lower right hand front section of the little square. You now have your side easel...
 
 On the floor: Stamped the quote using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Applied double sided tape to the large heart, trimmed of excess tape and sprinkled with the red glitter, burnishing well. Scored about 3/4" up from the point on the heart and adhered to the floor to act as my stopper.

Adhered the drop out hearts randomly to the floor. Sponged some of the Worn Lipstick around the edges.
