My Heart Shaped Card

Hi Everyone,

I hope everyone has enjoyed a wonderful weekend so far.

This is just a quick post since I want to get back to my craft room!  I got the Mo-jo running and don’t want to waste any time!

I have been sitting here looking at one of my most favorite stamp sets trying to decide what to do.  I just love this set because it always seems to have something in it that I can use, no matter what the card.

Without further delay, here is my card:



I am entering this card in the following challenges:

It’s a Girl!

Hi Everyone… and welcome to Friday!  I am just “Tickled Pink” to share a fun little project with you today!


When I thought about our challenge theme, one of the first things that popped into my mind was all things ‘baby girl.’  So with “soft, pretty and pink” as my inspiration, I decided to create a “baby carriage” or a “pram” for everyone in the UK.  I also thought that this could easily serve as a great little table centerpiece for a baby shower or even a topper for a baby shower cake.  What do you think?

In an effort to make it even more useful, I decided that it should open so that a sweet little surprise could be placed inside.


To create this carriage, cut a large circle and then cut it in half  for the two sides.  Once the sides were made all you need is a strip of paper with a fold on each side to make the base complete.

For the sunshade of the carriage cut the Francesca Border seven times and put a small dot of glue in the middle of each one to have them all lined up and held together.  Once the glue dries, start with one side and for each strip make it a little shorter where they all meet until you have the desired shape.  I did this several times as a test holding all the pieces until I figured out the shape I wanted.  Once you are satisfied with the shape,  simply glue each one together where they meet and trim.

Here’s a list of the dies used for this project:

B132 – Flower Chain Border
B159 – Francesca Border
B188 – Embellishment #2
B241 – Rose Leaf Strip
B250 – It’s a Boy Girl Phrases
B254 – Mesh Border
B258 – Cutie Fringe IV
B259 – Daisy Strip
B278 – Lady Kate Edger
D138 – Mini Dimensional Butterflies w Angel Wings
DL140 – Dutch Scallop Square
