This is a pop-up diorama card.
Instructions for assembling may be found at Split Coast Stampers site HERE.
To achieve this effect, you will need shapes (hearts, squares, etc.) of different sizes that nestle.  This card uses a set of heart dies.

One of the nice things about getting together with other crafters is that you can experiment with a project such as this and help each other figure out the directions.  That's what happend a couple of days ago.  Everyone brought their own supplies, so the variety of cards made from the same instructions was amazing and inspirational.

I used a very old Making Memories Love Notes paper pack.  The wide variety of patterns worked together for this composition.  One of the things I did was to make a paper quilt pattern with 3 of the papers which you see on two of the hearts.  This also is a very old sheet of 12x12 red cardstock.  I love using up my stash for these types of projects.

Challenges I'm entering:

Time Out Challenge: Valentine's Day with optional twist Hearts
Addicted to Stamps Challenge #128: Holiday
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Have a Heart
Mema's Crafts: January Anything Goes
