Shaped Valentine's Card

I think seeing pink last week from all of the wonderful entries that we had at the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge influenced me to share this delicate pink card with you today. And besides, Valentine's is quickly approaching so  you've got to use this color scheme! Right?

It is so easy to make a shaped card using Cheery Lynn Designs.  I used the largest die from the Heart to Heart Doily set (which is just a plain outline).  I scored my white cardstock in half, taped the die so that just a little bit extended off of the paper at the top, and ran it through the machine. Super easy.  Another thing to keep in mind when you are making shaped cards, is that the Angel Wings that come with so many of our dies, are great for lining up along a fold, to make a shaped base.

I cut the doily heart from pink cardstock, and glued to the base.  I love having all of the sentiment dies to mix and match.  Happy, Valentine's, and Day are all separate dies, so you can add others and have the greeting for about any holiday you might need.

I keep playing with our newest Build A Flower set, and for this card, I made an Anemone (that's one that is fun to say and make!)  I cut the Tropical Flourish into 2 sections, and framed the flower.  And....that leads me into the challenge that is up this week - Add a flourish.  CLD has so many flourishes, that I could not do without, and I'm sure you feel the same way.  So pull them out, and show us what you've got.  One entry will be chosen to win a $20 gift certificate to the store.
