Six more sleeps until it is Christmas Day!!! Hello, everyone! I decided that I am not making any more Christmas cards for this year. So, I have moved on to a Valentine’s Day card featuring the Taylored Expressions Floating Hearts Cutting Plate. I love the results of this cutting plate, which shows on the RIGHT side of my card.
To create the card, I sponged SU Classic Inks onto a piece of white card stock using a sponge dauber. I used Bashful Blue, Pink Pirouette, Pistachio Pudding, So Saffron, and Lovely Lilac ink. Using the sponged and colored piece of card stock and the Taylored Expressions Floating Hearts Cutting Plate, I die cut the hearts. Leaving the hearts within the cutting plate, I laid it over a piece of white card stock and pushed each heart out of the plate, ensuring the positioning was the same as the plate. I added an adhesive to attached them permanently to the card stock.
I used the SU Happy Hearts Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Pink Pirouette card stock and then cut out a heart in the center using a die from the Hero Arts’ Nesting Hearts Infinity Dies. I used the same piece of sponged, colored card stock to cut out a heart frame with the same heart dies. (NOTE: If you are looking for some wonderful heart dies, these will make you happy. There are 10 dies in the set and they truly nest perfectly within each other.) As you can see below, I used the heart cutouts to create a heart shaker box. I inserted some miniature hearts sequins inside the heart, which is covered with a piece of transparency.
I made the “love” sentiment with a die from Hero Arts’ Love Stamp & Cut. Lastly, I submitted this card for a Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge.
Thank you for stopping by! Hopefully my card brings you inspiration!

The birth of Jesus Christ (cont’d): “All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” — which means, “God with us.” When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.” Matthew 1:22-25 (Also see Isaiah 7:14 for the reference prophet.)
