Attach a layer of lined doublestick tape to gray cardstock and cut it with the 2nd-largest Double Stitch Loving Heart Cut Out die.  Cut Crystal Heart from a gold Polished Foil Pad sheet - remove the little pieces but leave the delicate diecut in the die.  Press the diecut onto the adhesive-covered heart and carefully remove the die.

Cut Crystal Heart from orange, pink and dark pink cardstock.  Attach a mix of colored pieces to the exposed adhesive. 

Cut orange and pink cardstock with the same Double Stitch Loving Heart die - then cut the hearts again with the smallest heart from the set.

Cut the Big Hugs background from dark gray cardstock.  Cut the delicate words from the pink Delicate Pastel Glitter Pad sheet.  

Attach the diecuts to a dark gray slimline card (3-⅝" x 8-⅝") - attach the greeting with foamtape.
