Another Cricut card.....this one's a Valentine

Michele Kovack commented on one of my Cricut cards and told me about this terrific site where they hold contests for cards made using the Cricut. It's Regina Easter's site called Bitten By The Bug. I just had to go and check it out. This month they are having a shape contest and you can use any cartridge. Just make a card using shapes. Since I am on a Valentine kick and I have the George Cartridge which just so happens to have heart shapes, I decided to make a Valentine card. This card was made, like I said, using the George Cartridge heart shape with the shift key. There are six heart shapes at 4, and 3 (DP) heart shapes at 3 1/2. I cuttlebugged the DP hearts and glued them to three of the larger hearts. I then glued three hearts together making a chain of hearts. I did the same with the other three, making sure that they matched the other chain exactly. I used a 2x2 1/2 piece of card stock, scored and folded down the center lengthwise and glued the two heart chains to make the hinge. I added ribbon, buttons, primas, hearts and the sentiment ( Love You) that I cut using the same cartridge at actual size of 1 1/2 inches. I also added some accent pieces cut from DP and some ice stickles for a little more pizazz.. You know me, I have to add some sparkle. This was the first shaped card that I have made using my Cricut and I have to say it was lots of fun. If you have a Cricut, you should pop on over and check out Regina's site. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
