Click here for my Peace Tag Cuttin' & Stampin' Blog Hop 2/1 Orange Team post.

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 are wooden block rubber stamps. Had the Birdcage/Birds stamp for awhile & using for first time. 

Supplies List 

ink: Memento Lady Bug
paper: cardstock - pink
