Flaming Heart Valentine

I know I say this all the time, but I sure had great fun making this card. This time I am using two Doodle Pantry sets. The new set is Heart on Fire and the older set is Love Birdies. The heart, designer paper and sentiment are from the Heart on Fire set and the birdies are from the Love Birdies set. For the birdies, I removed them from the bird house they were in to use for this card. I printed the PRECOLORED version of both the birdies and the heart, and then used Copic markers to color them a little more (Y21, Y23, Y26, YR12, YR14, YR18, R14, R29). I did not touch the beaks on either birdie or the cheeks on the yellow birdie. After adding red and other colors to the flames, I went over the black outlines with a Sakura gold gelly roll pen.  I brought the heart into my Silhouette Cameo and did a trace and then cut the heart out in order to pop it up on top of the printed image to add dimension. I printed the sentiment and then used my Stampin' Up! heart punch to punch it out. I distressed it with pumpkin pie and real red ink. The card base is pumpkin pie card stock from Stampin' Up! I then added black goosebump crystals from Queen & Co.
