Hearts


I just received a new die from Lifestyle crafts  - how perfect for those two challenges I  made those cards for. One is the 10 minute craft dash - I like this challenge, because pressure stimulates me and some of my best cards were created rather quickly, although I usually don't have a timer running... Anyhow, the first card took 9 minutes and 19 seconds - most of the time I spent was poking those little hearts out, where the die did not entirely cut through the paper... how annoying, I thought I may not make it within the 10 minute time frame.

The sentiment is from Micheal's - one of those $1 stamps they have. 
The second card went faster - I put a shim through, so the Big Shot cut the die better. not sure how much faster, I had my timer off. The sentiment is from Hero Arts Heartfelt Messages (Cl150). I will submit this card to the Simon Says challenge Have a Heart. I am entering this card also into the die cut divas untraditional Valentine's card challenge and The Squirrel and the Fox challenge #37 LOVE

I absolutely love these cards! By the way, I've had good luck using a piece of wax paper next to the die & then the cardstock--really makes a difference on dies like this. I didn't think of it, but was sure glad someone told me.
