Hedgehog Heart-Shaped Valentine

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

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 stamp & Scribbles by Sandy digi, Hedgehog. Colored the digi with Crayola pencil colors. Fussy cut the digi out with my fav Tim Holtz scissors which make for all the spikes of this Hedgehog so much easier to cut. 

My daughter likes Hedgehogs so I'll be sending her this Valentine.

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.

  8. Hey Melissa,

    First off, congrats on your new DT position. I'm sure you'll have lots of fun in your new role.

    Your card using Hedgie turned out great. I love your card shape. I'll have to try and see if I can pull off something similar by hand. The spikes on Hedgie look great as well.

    Thank you so much for participating in our special 100th follower celebration. Good luck in the draw!
