Thin Cuts Blog Hop

Welcome to our Thin Cuts Blog Hop!  If you've come here from Kathy Burrows blog, you're on the right path.  You can see the entire list of participants at Melinda Everitt's blog.

I wanted to make a card for some dear friends who are retired from the ministry. To coordinate with the stamp set I chose to use, Bible Verses, B1665, I used two sets of heart Thin Cuts. (This stamp set is only available as a hostess reward through the end of April.) The Basic Hearts  are slightly bigger than the Stitched Hearts, so they work well for mats behind the Stitched Hearts.

The black heart below is the 2nd largest one in the Basic Hearts die set and the pink Ballerina heart that I stamped is the 2nd largest one in the Stitched Hearts set.  I used the largest Basic Hearts die to cut the window, papers from I Heart Us and a Mint Shimmer Brush on the smallest heart. The Blush Shimmer Ribbon is a good match for the Ballerina cardstock stitched and stamped heart. To make a window card like this you can pop up the top panel with 3-D Foam tape  and the small Mint heart with Thin 3-D Foam dots.

The Decorative Borders dies are great to decorate the edge of the inside of cards as well as the front.  I used the scalloped die which is outlined with stitches, but they don't show up too well with the patterned paper.

Beautiful card! I love the idea of using the border die to embellish the inside edge of the card.
