This is a one-layer card designed to look like three layers. The first technique I used was reverse masking -- first stamping the tag on the card, then making a mask by stamping the tag again on scrap paper, cutting it out and placing it over the tag. That way I could stamp the swirly background to look like it was DP under the tag. And I used a ruler and marker to put the thin red edge around the edges of the card to look like the DP is layered on a red card.
One of the new stampers I met was fascinated by a card that used Glossy Accents -- she'd never heard of such products. I ended up using some on this card to give the little heart some shine and dimension.
