I know it’s been a long time!!!  No excuses… just had no extra time for blogging…

Today, I want to share Valentine’s Day cards… I got inspired by a challenge I saw on the Impression Obsession website and since I got the Cherubs dies last year after Valentine’s Day and never got to use them, I thought I tried to make a card or two.  The Impression Obsession challenge is called “Sparkle and Shine”. so I used glitter card stock on my card, as a trim around the die cut heart.

Here is the card:

Isn’t that cupid the cutest!


The card base and red front are both Stardream card stock (with a slight shimmer).

I cut the heart with a Lifestyle crafts “nesting hearts” die and cut the trim with the matching Lifestyle craft “Nesting Lace Heart”.  I used the same die used to cut the heart in the red card stock to cut out of the Lace heart, leaving just a thin trim to could be glued around the edges of the first heart…. I hope that makes sense.  Basically, I cut the two hearts one inside the other, leaving just the outside trim.

The cherub was cut out of red card stock (Stampin’Up! real red CS).  The XOXO is cut out of glitter card stock with a very old die from my stash.

I have to say to I actually intended to make this a shaker card, but I forgot to glue the acetate on the back of the red card stock before I glued the foam mat used to create the shaker.  I’ll try again…

You can find the Impression Obsession challenge here:  Sparkle and Shine Challenge

That’s it for now.
