Heart Fold Card with Cricut


Hey All.... here is another cut that was inspired by a Sizzix cut, the heart fold card. I saved me $15-$20 by creating this cut with the Design Studio. The 1st photo is the Sizzix Cut, to give you an idea of what I'm talking about.

2nd photo is of my cut that I created using the Cricut's Design Studio. I know that before I purchase anything of Sizzix, I'm going to try and create it with my Cricut Design Studio. Granted that I won't be able to cut this through a chipboard or felt, or leather.... but I'm not into cutting my cards on these materials anyways. The stamp image that I used is from Whipper Snapper. I embossed the heart flaps with my Swiss Dots CB Folder. The panels were sewned on - YES!!! I busted out my sewing machine, and went stitching. At least it's still going to good use, rather than just sitting there on my table of machines. I have to get me more thread, and do a lot more sewing though.

Below are photos of the inside of the card, and a close up of my stitches from my sewing.... It was a fun card to create.

The sentiment on the inside says "Love You" and is a TAC sentiment. The DP is a very pretty paper which I purchased from my friend Brian down at Photo Craft. This card was created for my hubby - it was our 14th Anniversary on the 3rd of September. Yes, I am late... but it was worth waiting for, right??!
