Heart to Heart

I'm excited to share a card I created using the new Heart to Heart Doily and other fabulous dies from Cheery Lynn Designs, including a sneak peek at the new English Doily that makes its' debut at CHA in California this weekend!

Because Valentine's Day is drawing near, I've been in the mood for creating some lovey-dovey cards and using the Heart to Heart Doily is just the die to inspire a mushy card! 


To add to the overall romantic feel that I wanted to express with this card I also incorporated some of my other favorite dies.  The border at the bottom of the card is cut from the Embossed Hearts Scalloped Border Die, the leaves that I used with my hand-cut flowers are from the Small Dimensional Leaves 1 set of dies and I used the Foliage embossing plate to create that pretty embossed effect on the pink card stock that goes across the center of the card. A quick swipe with some Antique Linen Distress Ink and the embossing really pops... I love that!


The close-up above provides you with an opportunity to get a really good look at the beautiful dimension and intricate cuts achieved using the Heart to Heart Doily die cuts. 

And...while I am on the subject of the intricate cuts the Heart to Heart and other new doily dies create, I'd like to share a little tip with you (because I just know you are going to want to own each and every one of the Cheery Lynn Design doilies)! The intricate details of these dies incorporate lots of tiny-little die cuts that don't all fall out right when you take them out of your tabletop die cut machine. To remove those pieces quickly (and easily), tear off a piece (about three fingers wide) of removable tape and sticky-side down, press it onto the die cut. When you lift up, off come the little pieces (yay!) (Alternately you may use a paper piercer or tweezers but that take just a tad bit longer to poke out the cuts that don't fall out automatically).  For more tips and tricks using Cheery Lynn Designs you should check out these videos.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, join us again tomorrow over at the Cheery Lynn Designs blog for more projects using Cheery Lynn Design's magical dies!
