Thank You From My Heart

Are you going to join me for my 30-Day Gratitude Card Challenge, starting September 22nd? I hope you will! These are a couple of cards I made a while back for a new catalog Open House, but I don't think I ever showed them on my blog. (Oh yeah, I got evacuated because of the Waldo Canyon Fire, that's probably why I forgot!) The first one was the first idea I came up with, but then I wanted something a little bit simpler, and that turned out to be the second card.
It's hard to see in the picture, but the vanilla layer has also been stamped with the wheel. To make this card in multiples, you can cut out the Oval Accent layer, and then actually cut each one in half. If you do use the halves, and stamp after die-cutting, you may want to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig with the 'thank you' image. And the trick to getting the heart punched out of the oval, is to punch the heart first, then align the oval punch around that to punch it out. I thought I was being clever by putting the heart at the bottom of the card...since the sentiment mentioned "the bottom of my heart"...yes?
Stampin' Supplies: From My Heart stamp set, Bella Boutique wheel, Sahara Sand card stock, Very Vanilla card stock, Midnight Muse ink pad, VersaMark ink pad (wheel on card base & vanilla layer), Bigz Clear Oval Accent Die, Small Oval Punch, Small Heart Punch, Basic Pearls.
This card ended up being the Make & Take project, because it's so fast and easy, and because I absolutely LOVED the rich look of the Bella Boutique wheel on the Midnight Muse card stock. Since you can line up the framelit over the stamped image, and you are going to use the whole die cut piece, you don't need the Stamp-a-ma-jig. Notice how the wheeled pattern on the layer of this card is perpendicular to the wheeled image on the gives it a little more depth, along with those Stampin' Dimensionals :-)
