Countdown to Valentine's Day - Day Three: Checkerboard Heart Card

This card just makes me happy. It was so fun to make! I was inspired by this card I found on Pinterest. I started with a 6 x 6 inch kraft card base then added a 5 3/4" Cranberry mat. The main part of the card is a 5 1/2" square of kraft cardstock. I made a grid using 1/2" inch strips spaced evenly. The hearts (Whooo's Your Valentine) are all stamped on kraft cardstock then hand cut. I placed the smaller hearts directly on the background; the larger heart are raised using 3-D foam tape. The smallest heart is layered on top of the large heart then topped with a knot of hemp baker's twine from the new Mini-Medleys Accents Wooden Collection. Everything is distressed with Saddle ink. 

Here's the inside:
