I've been making Valentine's cards, and have one to share with you today:
I used a set of nesting hearts dies to create this card. These happen to be by Spellbinders, but the Dies R Us Store has several great options you could use including these by Tutti Designs, and these by Card Deco Essentials.
I wanted an element of surprise when the recipient took the card out of the envelope, so I positioned my hearts at a bit of a rakish angle, then continued that surprise with lots of glitter and foil papers.
Here's a photo of all the supplies I used:
I wanted to make sure all those layers stuck together really well, and I sometimes have trouble with glitter paper adhering, so I used Stick It Sheets on the back of all the foil and glitter papers --and the sentiment.
Here's everything after I got it die cut:
The sentiment is from a great set by Creative Expressions. I use it often.
And, one more view of my sparkly card:
I wanted to make sure you've heard the exciting news! Dies R Us now has a sister store located in Canada called Didi Crafts. It will ship both to the Us and Canada. Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as Dies R Us, but most will be different. Now our Canadian friends don't have to pay huge taxes or large shipping costs. How great is that?!?!
I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
D.L. Art -- January Linky Party
Outlawz Festive Fridays -- ATG
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends -- ATG
Cute Card Thursday -- What's New? (stacked heart dies)
