Made this card for a special challenge at Gingersnap Creations, it is a titled mat. My sister gave me a new die cut for Christmas. It is one die cut that will cut about 6 different shapes. The die cut is from Cuttlebug and is a Damask Frame, couldn't wait to give this one a try. It also has an embossing pad with it, will be using that on upcoming cards.

The background paper is Eskimo Kisses Paper Pad. The clip art is from Graphics Fairy, and speaks volumes. Can't wait for my sister to see that I have actually used her gift right away. Also received a Spellbinders Die cut from daughter, but haven't used it yet, never fear, I will be using it soon.

Time for me to head off to work. Will be making Valentine's for my daughter, on my days off, need to make 27 for her 6th grade class. If anyone has any simple ideas, let me know. She has 17 boys in her class so can't make them to cutesy. (No candy either) .

Have a crafty day.


  1. Looks fabulous! Glad you had fun with the challenge!

  2. I have been giving a lot of thought to your request for valentine ideas for 6th graders (my son is in 7th). You really threw a curve ball when you said "no candy". UGH! How about some of those cute plastic slide puzzles that you can purchase online. OT has them on sale right now for not much $$$. You could put each one in a clear cello bag with some paper shread and make a cute little topper for each. Just brainstorming!

  3. I love your card. I am glad that your are usung your gift. Are you making cards for Jamie or do you want prizes for the kids?

  4. Great card for the challenge, wish I could help with the Valentines but my boys 25!
    maybe check out a party supply store for an inexpensive toy they sell in lots!

  5. Gorgeous frame and I love the die! I'm off to see if I can find it!

    Love the colors!
