It's hard to believe school is about to hit. Been working hard and as a result my mojo has been WAY down today. I really need to make a few birthday cards, but the brain was empty. Do you know how that is sometimes? So I decided to just make something simple while still play with new things.
I was rummaging through my stash and found this stamp that I have never used before. It's from Inkadinkadoo--are they even in business anymore? It's a beautiful heart and then I placed it on top of a Cheery Lynn die. I actually used to have this die in a smaller size but had to return it because it just wouldn't cut no matter how many shims I put in. This one cut out beautifully! So I guess the lesson here is don't settle for a die that doesn't cut..it must have a defect.
It's really hard to see the shimmery detail of this card in the photo, but the die cut is actually a lovely shimmery pink and the heart is embossed in Dragon Red Stampendous Embossing powder so it is SPARKLY! I figured less is more for this and just a simple little sentiment in the center. WIll probably be sneaking this into the girls' backpack at some point during the year. :)
Well thanks for stopping by. Since I'll be out of commission all next week (teaching a 40 hour course--I'm tired just thinking about it), I will be posting today through Sunday so Kathy can get her cards done without being overly overwhelmed. Will see you tomorrow! Margaret
