Happy Heart Card -- for Dies R Us Inspiration Blog

Hello, fellow craft lovers.  I have the great honor of posting on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog today, where I always have so much fun  playing with my always growing die collection.  

I've been making Valentine's cards, and have one to share with you today:

I used a set of nesting hearts dies to create this card.  These happen to be by Spellbinders, but the Dies R Us Store has several great options you could use including these by Tutti Designs, and these by Card Deco Essentials.

I wanted an element of surprise when the recipient took the card out of the envelope, so I positioned my hearts at a bit of a rakish angle, then continued that surprise with lots of glitter and foil papers.

Here's a photo of all the supplies I used:

I wanted to make sure all those layers stuck together really well, and I sometimes have trouble with glitter paper adhering, so I used Stick It Sheets on the back of all the foil and glitter papers --and the sentiment.

Here's everything after I got it die cut:

The sentiment is from a great set by Creative Expressions.  I use it often.
And, one more view of my sparkly card:

I wanted to make sure you've heard the exciting news!  Dies R Us now has a sister store located in Canada called Didi Crafts.  It will ship both to the Us and Canada.  Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as Dies R Us, but most will be different.  Now our Canadian friends don't have to pay huge taxes or large shipping costs.  How great is that?!?!

I hope you check this blog every day for wonderful inspiration!  The design team is so creative, you don't want to miss anything.  Then, join in the challenges at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  Here's one last link to the Dies R Us Store for you, too!
