Valentine Whale I Love You Heart-Shaped Card

Wonderful news I'm a new DT of Cuttin' & Stampin' on the Orange Team. Ck out the Cuttin' & Stampin' Blog Hop Jan 31 & Feb 1. Ends 2/6.

Created this Clean & Simple CAS Heart-Shaped Valentine Card using a Spellbinder heart die & craftsmart stamps. 

When you use the Spellbinder die to make a shaped card you do it in 2 passes. First pass you place the top acryllic cutting plate but leave the top part of the heart curve uncovered for side of card. Second pass you lift the die off the paper and place on opposite side lining up where the uncut curve is and again place the top acrylic cutting place leaving the top part of heart curve uncovered. 

Craftsmart stamps like this are sold at Michaels for $1.50. They use to be $1 and the price went up recently. They are wooden block rubber stamps. The Whale stamp is a last yr stamp using for first time. 

I like heart-shapes & Whales. My diamond engagement ring is heart-shaped. I've enjoyed seeing & photographing whales on a Whale-Watching Boat Trip outside of Gloucester, Boston, Sitka, Alaska & on a helicopter ride from Maui to Molokai, Hawaii.
