My Heart is Caught
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Friends!


I am so happy you could join us today! Our brand new Valentine's release offers beautiful and romantic dies perfect for so many occasions. Today, I am sharing a card I created with two of my favorite new dies from the new release, Heart Favor and Hanging Heart. Take a look!


When I first saw the Heart Favor die, I was reminded of a line from a romantic poem:

my heart is caught

So I created this super sweet CAS card that features a hand with a heart caught in a string. Did the hand catch her heart, or is the hand offering someone their heart? Or, of all the hearts out there in the world, this hand captured mine. Whatever you decide, the answer is certainly romantic.


The Heart Favor die is a set of two dies that features the tiny hand, and also a beautiful heart with a flower. I only used the hand, along with the Hanging Heart, but there are so many really beautiful combinations you can create using any of these romantic dies from our new release.


I cut the hand out from the Heart Favor in a heavy white card stock, then again in a pale beige color and assembled the pieces together. I cut the Hanging Heart 6 times, three in a heavy white, and then in 3 shades of red and pink, and adhered them onto a pretty pearl blue background. Easy Breezy, just like love when you know it's right.
