Shopping Our Stash #413 - My Heart Is On Fire!

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
It's time for another fortnight challenge at 
"My Heart Is On Fire"
You may use Red, Hearts, Fire or any combination of the three!

Everything used on this card is from my stash.  I have had this Neenah "Hot Pepper" linen card stock since 2003.  I am down to my last three or four sheets.  It is so expensive now I doubt that I could afford it! The gold card has also been in my stash since 2001.  I have quite a bit left.  In the past, I didn't use much gold but that is slowly changing.

One of my crafting goals this year is to use my embossing folders and my old impression plates.  I was able to use three of my favorites in this project.  I was also able to use one of my flatback pearl hearts, which are almost 10 years old.  I am not spending one unnecessary penny on crafts.  I am finding far too much good stuff in my stash!
I decided to keep the inside very simple.  I do think that I am going to go back and stamp a sentiment.  I was running a tad bit late with my project and it wasn't until I took the pictures that I realized I need a sentiment.  I only have like 100 Valentine stamp sets!😀
I cut my little heart using one of my old steel rule dies!  They are the reason that I have a brand new, still, in the box, Big Shot under the bed in the guest room and another in my studio, along with my BS Plus and BS Pro.  The Hearts EF is a WRKM Next Level.  I am glad I purchased almost all of these before they were discontinued.  The diagonal embossing was made using a Couture Pinstripe EF. I just turned the panel at an angle.   The Swiss Dots EF is a very old Cuttlebug A2 EF and was among one of my first purchases back in  2004.
