You've Got My Heart

Good Morning All,

Today I am posting on the Inspirational Blog at Crafty Sentiments Designs.

So I am sharing with you a Valentine's Day Card. I know it's a bit early but thought I would get an early start on my Valentine Cards. Plus I am so happy that I am learning how to use my New Cricut Explore. The card cut out I used is from a Cricut Cartridge and has a heart cut out in the middle of it but it's kind of covered with my heart I cut out and my die cut. You can see a little bit behind my image. I think this is becoming my new favorite toy. : D

I chose You've Got My Heart from the Romance Collection 2014. Just click on the names and you will be directed straight to the Crafty Sentiments Store or stamp.

Here is my card -
***I used two different Cricut Cartridges and a Heartfelt Creations Die
with an embossing folder

***CloseUp of my image - Added Glossy Accents to the red hearts and
made the girl image pink colored tights. Fussy cut the image and 
placed on the inside of the top portion of the heart embossed card.

Supplies:  There are 2 pieces to the card Main base card measurements - 5.75 in. x 5.5 in. / Top portion - 5.5 in. x 5.25 in.
