Heart Shaped Panda Valentine Card

It is easy to make shaped cards using a Spellbinder die. For this Heart Shaped Valentine Card I cut cardstock 4" x 10 1/2". Scored the cardstock at 5" on short side. Folded the card at the score line. Placed Spellbinder Heart die with part of the heart edge off the edge of the fold. Used Sizzix to cut the heart and by placing the top plate so that it was not over the edge ran it thru and cut.

Stamped Craftin Desert Diva Panda Pals Panda & sentiment for front of card. Colored with Crayola pencil colors.

Stamped Recollections "I <heart> you" sentiment for inside. Added heart gem to embellish.
