You’ll Be In My Heart!


Hi everyone,

It’s Saturday which means it is time for another challenge with the Crazies over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week our challenge hostess Angela Wood has challenged us to use hearts on our creations.

I decided to use MFT Stamps Pure Innocence - Love You With All My Heart stamp set for my heart creation today. The roses on the side of the heart are from the MFT Die-namics Mini Rolled Rose die.



I have seen these heart boxes made using the heart nestabilities around the place and wanted to give it a try, so this was the perfect challenge to make one. These are so easy to create. I die cut the largest scallop heart twice for the base and the lid, and also the largest heart to layer on the lid.  To create the boxes that are in between the heart layers I used a 4 inch square card and a 4 1/8 inch square card and scored around the sides of each at 1 inch.  All that is left then is the decorating!

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
