Darnell's NBUS challenge this week has an optional theme of 'Hidden Word' or 'Camouflaged Word' -a new technique for me - my NBUS is the Hexagon dies.  I'm also entering A Gem of a Challenge 'Hearts and/or Flowers' (I've obviously chosen the hearts theme), Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge and Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies challenge.

Card blank: 6" x 4" white hammer
Dies: Impression Obsession 'Love' and Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Hexagons'
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Card: White hammer
Paper: Wild Rose Studio 'Always and Forever'

I attached the heart paper onto white card before die cutting and embossing a hexagon.  I die cut part of the 'Love' die and set it aside before attaching the hexagon to the card blank.  To add dimension I die cut four words from white card, three were layered and attached to the card. I attached the section of the 'Love' die I had set aside and then trimmed and attached the fourth white 'Love '.
