Are you still with me? Here are those cards I promised:
I tried myself on the technique so fabulously explained by JJ Bolton on the C&S 1st bonus day class. Everybody probably know her, if not, I linked her name to her blog. I fiddled around with that technique, which is really not that difficult to do, but it is time consuming. I cut the triangle shapes with my Big Shot and Lifestyle Crafts diamond shaped dies. I am not so happy with the first card. Probably should not have cut the corners on the upper right, but it is, what it is. It improved a bit with adding Stickles to the hearts. I am entering this card in the "Love Theme" VSC #8 Challenge.
With the second card I gave up on the spacing, just taped the die cut together with Scotts tape and trimmed it to a conical shape. I like the second card better. I am entering this card into the die cut divas untraditional Valentine's card challenge.
The sentiments are Hero Arts Hugs N Hearts (Cl301), Hero Arts Spring Borders (Cl128).
