Valentine, Be Mine!

We are having another challenge over at

613 Avenue Create

and this week the theme is
 

Anything Goes w/ an optional twist to use Felt

 
 
This week my cut files (electronic die-cuts) come from SVG Cuts.
 
 
The Heart Shaped Box
 
 
I just enjoy so much that I can open it up and add any kind of chocolates I want!!!
 
 
My Card
 
 
The stamped sentiments are from Jaded Blossom.
 
 
I used My Mind's Eye for my DP and American Crafts for the solid cardstock. I used Papertrey Ink and Colorbox inks to ink all my edges. I added a few pearl embellishments. And of course I had to use a bit of felt, so I made felt roses. Some tutorials for making felt roses can be found on my Pinterest page on my Ideas to Try board.
 
Hope you enjoyed today's project.
 
And of course I would be honored if you would:
 
 Become a follower here on my blog - M. Miranda Creations.
 
Join me on my Facebook page - M. Miranda Creations
 
Check out my pins on my Pinterest page.
 
Have a Super Sunday!
 
May you be blessed!

Wow...this is so beautiful...what a sweet Valentine's Day gift you have. I need to check out those files, this is just too darn cute!

Jo Ann said...

Hello Melissa...Ah, you are so sweet! First, thank you for the heartfelt comment you left in my Blog yesterday. As much as I want people to appreciate my cards/projects, I am happier when they are able to draw wisdom, knowledge and encouragement in my post for that is the heart and soul and the very reason why I create---to declare the mercy and goodness of God through His Son, Jesus Christ! I am touched! Secondly, I definitely love your projects as well. You know, I have a gazillion Cricut cartridges and very seldom do I use it. Not because I don't like using them but because I am loving the stamping effect more than the die-cuts. But seeing what you are doing, one day, I will have to spend time again with my die-cut machine and create a project using the many wonderful designs hiding in those cartridges...LOL Thanks for inspiring me too!

Hugs and blessings always,
JO ANN
