Set of 3 Card Toppers

I use ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) for a lot of my Card Toppers, but your challenge sparked the need to try out my Epic Six. I have Label Four Nestabilities by Spellbinders to cut the base shape onto white cardstock (WalMart). I stamped the LOVE symbol from Stampin' Up's Kanji stamp set. I also used the same Nestabilities to cut the next size larger to frame the stamped image, using a discarded teal-colored file folder from work (Recycled). I then played around with different bottom layers, using two different shapes from Nestabilites, although one I didn't use another layer.

The card topper with the white bottom layer was embellished with black Skittles; the topper with the black bottom layer was embellished with an acrylic flower from a swap and an adhesive-backed pearl; the third topper with only two layers was embellished with a black button and a bit of fiber.

I can use these on Valentine cards and treats, and on Birthday cards.

Oh, Patacake1956, these are lovely card toppers!

Thank you for entering the challenge and for being sure to tell me what supplies you used. I see you have a Stampin' Up! image there so I will be putting your name in the hat twice for chances to win the little RAK I have in mind for the challenge :)
