Die Cutting Challenge

This is my 2nd post today! I'm on a roll :) I made this card for the Moxie Fab World Cool Tools Week Die cutting challenge found here. It's a fun challenge and all you have to do is use a die cut in an innovative way on your project! I'm using a new Memory Box Serafina Heart die that I bought with some Christmas cash. I cut the heart using a scrap of some heavy shimmer paper that was given to me so I'm not sure who makes it. I made a border using an EK punch, and put a piece of matching card stock behind it. The sentiment was done with a $1 stamp from Michaels and a Close To My Heart marker, and I added a tiny white heart-shaped brad just for fun.
Go here and check out the challenge because you have a chance to win a copy of the new magazine Cool Tools, and that looks like a must-have magazine! You have until February 13th to play along. Have fun!
That will do it for me for today! Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

Carol, Both of these cards are fabulous. The die on your first card is so very interesting. I like that punch more and more every time I see it and you really stepped it up by backing it with the colored paper. What a cute sentiment. Your second card with that adorable little image is just precious. Perfect coloring and I love that music paper just as much as your designer paper. I'm going to have to get me that (and maybe others) image. I have been rearranging and cleaning this craft room for 2 days straight. I needed to find a way to make it work better without seeming so crowded. Busy day planned for tomorrow, but hopefully I'll get to craft Thursday. Have a great night.

Holy Toledo! I am so glad to see this heart die cut used. I've been eyeing it on Joan's Gardens for a while. It's very unique and gorgeous, too. The border hearts are just yummy. Super duper card, Carol.

Carol, this card is beautiful. I bought one of these Memory Box heart die cuts today at my local stamp store, can't wait to cut it.

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment on my blog and to spread kindness and comfort.
