My cards for today are made using heart die cuts. They can be used as Valentines Day cards, Thank You cards, I Miss You cards, or any other sentiment that goes with hearts. I chose to use the Thank You Sentiment on some of them. For the die cutting, I used a Spellbinders Platinum with a 8.5 inch platform. This is the larger machine that allows you to cut from 8.5″ wide pages. I used to use a Cricut Cuttlebug machine, but found that intricate dies didn’t always cut well. It’s great for the Thinlits or Framelits, but one of the dies I’m using today, called Lace Hearts by Spellbinders, has lots of small areas and finer details that might not cut as well with the Cuttlebug.
Sometimes, when you use dies, there are scraps of paper left over. I didn’t want to just set them aside for later, so I ended up using them to create additional cards. So, today, I have four cards for you. I had fun deciding which specialty paper to use and how to pair them with the die cuts. I hope you enjoy watching and I hope you’ll give them a try.
