The side panel is Chocolate Chip cardstock measuring 4-1/2" X 4", and So Saffron cardstock measuring 4-3/8" X 3-7/8". The saffron piece is stamped in chocolate ink using the Sanded background stamp, and the "love" sentiment from the set Love & Joy. The two pieces are attached to each other, then attached to card base. I stamped the "merry" sentiment from Love & Joy in olive, and punched it out using the 3/4" Circle Punch. The edges are sponged in chocolate, and the 1/8" Handheld Punch was used to make the hole for the Rhinestone Brad to be added. A scrap piece of chocolate cardstock is punched using the 1" Circle Punch, and the two circles were attached using a Dimensional. These circles were used to make the "o" in "love", and are popped up from the card base using a dimensional again. The heart itself is a piece of chipboard from On Board Accents, and is covered with the same striped paper used on the card base. I traced the shape onto the back of the designer paper, cut it out, then sponged the edges with chocolate ink. The paper was glued to the heart using a spray adhesive, then the edges were trimmed with scissors and sanded with a Sanding Block. The heart is attached to the card base using strips of foam tape.
