The Heart’s The Thing… RCC58 – PDCC 137

I have had the most beautiful die for months and never managed to use it.  Today just had to be the day for the die cut to go on a card.  I love really intricate and finely detailed dies but they can be a problem where glue is concerned so, sometimes, I just opt for something not quite so labor intensive

I saw a tutorial recently that gave me the answer to the problem and I started thinking about all the finely detailed dies I have, how I hardly ever use them and how I wanted to use them.  So, here it is for you to see.

I like to keep some of my cards free of sentiments.  A heart can say so many things…  why limit oneself when it comes to a loving gesture?

There are two challenges today that helped define this card.  The Ribbon Carousel Blog ( which required that one use a metal object on the card and The Play Date Cafe ( which designates a color palette to follow.  This week it was black and white with a touch of marine blue.

Supplies used were papers from The Paper Company and Shabby Chic (Michael’s Dollar Bin Pack); ribbon, string and charms from Hobby Lobby; the La Rue Heart Die from Memory Box.  Glue, glue eraser, foam dimensionals, crystal topped pins, my Xeron machine and my Fiskars paper-cutter were used as well.

So, let me hear from you!  I love it when you comment on my creations and I appreciate your attention and support.  Blessings and Hugs, Ya’ll…!

    I’m fascinated by the 3D-ness of it.

    Since I know nothing at all related to the art of card creation, couldn’t differentiate a die from a??????, I respond strictly by what your cards immediately say TO me and this one, especially in juxtaposition to the beautiful silhouettes of you and Doug, says LOVE.
