Congratulations is the Heart2Heart Challenge Theme

This week on the Heart2Heart Challenge Blog we are sharing 'Congratulations' inspired projects.

My card starts with a value pack card 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" base (love the card base and envelope value pack), a Pixie cardstock piece 5" x 3 3/4" matted with Black at 5 1/8" x 3 7/8".

A White Daisy piece at 4 1/2" x 3 1/4" stamped with a the van image from this month's Stamp of the Month, The Long Journey Home (S1606) towards the bottom right. I left enough room to add the shimmer trim arrow.

I stamped it a second time on a scrap piece of White Daisy in pixie and paper pieced the bottom section of the black image in with the cutout from the Pixie stamped image -- love Pixie!!

Congratulations, from the stamp set Smarty Pants (1649), is stamped above and to the left of the van and I added some Pixie hearts from the Stamp of the Month.

The inside message is my Dr. Suess favorite, Oh, the places you'll go!!

This could be graduation, new car, first job, first apartment, new house, well, just about anything.

And now it is your turn to play along with us over at Heart2Heart!!

There are FOUR great Stamps of the Month and we start with Sweet Treats. A great stamp for Halloween, Christmas, winter, and friendship.

Here are to cards I created using Sweet Treats!

I created a Halloween shaker card using our new Shaker thin cuts and Shaker Window Foam & Acetate (Z4310). I used one of the circle thin cuts to cut a small circle in the card base and used the larger circle and frame to create a see through shaker. I cut little bats on the Cricut and added the Shaker Sequins.
And don't forget to do the inside and envelope
Next I cut a large circle with the Shaker Thin Cut and added a Cricut cut leaf frame. The Warm Winter Wishes image was stamped on the inside and a piece of Ruby polka dot ribbon from my stash was added to the front.
