You want to emboss with Falling Petals embossing folder but put the embossing plates from the Big Shot only to where you want the texture to go so you don't encroach on the hearts to the right.
Stamp little hearts with Sealed with Love set and diecut them out- I like the little white around the edge that offsets it from the background with this die. Stamp Happy Valentine's day in red ink onto a Stitched Circle cut out of whisper white CS. Layer on top of the lacy doily. It looked a bit empty so I was playing with silver thread and cord and ftinally settled on the Sunshine Wishes thinlits dies - I used the flower looking thing because I liked the loop de-loop of the thicker glittery shimmer paper over the thread that seemed be lost.
Now that my kids are older they are not doing Valentine swaps- where did the time go? - now I have to justify buying all the Valentine stuff - Anyhoo, I just loved it and I thought I should make it for my office staff who work so hard all the time. With the kit it was super speedy although diecutting the wings with the heart die from the Love Notes framelit took the longest.
The Owl is done with Pink Pirouette CS- the body is made from the Best Badge punch with the heart that comes with the kit stamped with sentiment from same. Love the little heart outline that fits inside the heart and the sentiment and the heart nose is from the owl builder punch in Peekaboo Peach. Take 3/8 inch strip and punched a bunch of hearts in a row to make assembly line style.
see my basket of owl valentine treats for my wonderful staff.....

cut a piece of DSP and put it across the bottom with little room on the bottom for the sentiment.
Diecut a stitched circle die and then diecut the bowl and the spoon with Silver Foil Sheet. I used the scoring tool to free hand the lines for the bowl. Diecut vanilla, pink pirouette and Pool party ice creams and chocolate chip for chocolate syrup on top. Diecut the cherry with the watermelon wonder and used chocolate chip marker to color the stems.
I made a pool of Tombow multipurpose glue and used a tweezer to touch the back of each sprinkle to the glue and voila, an easy birthday card.
I did use dimensionals for the scoops.

YOu can make any pop up by making a rectagular tube. The left shows you how. I made this one 4x41/2 inches but you could make it shorter or taller depending on what you want. I scored it at 1 1/4, 2 1/4, and 3 1/2. When you put glue on the top and bottom panel in the front and put it in the fold of your card, it makes an automatic popup like this.
Have fun with it.

Base is Crushed curry with a piece of whisper white that has some holes punched that showed the Crushed Curry color through. The dots are made by Nuvo Crystal Drops that I got from Cranberry Hill, my local craft store in Sunyvale and they are super fun and quick easy way to add a pop of color and dimension. They dry like glass and just a festive note. I will probably use it for all my birthday cards. Silver glimmer diecut happy from Avery-Elle and banner using Stampin' Up banner punch- (retired) with Cherry on Top DSP. Cone and Ice Cream from Stampin' Up Cool Treats- my favorite stampset and die from the new Occasions Catalog and "belated" sentiment from Sweet Cupcake set
