Be Mine ~ Craftin Desert Divas February Release

Hello Friends! Welcome to my blog!

Today's card features the new Heart Mandala Die from Craftin Desert Divas.

This die is absolutely beautiful and I kept my card pretty simple to let this die shine.


I die-cut the Heart Mandala Die in the center of some Neenah Classic Crest 110# cardstock and then die-cut it again with the CDD Fancy Frames Dies. I ink-blended this panel with Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks and set it aside.

I took another panel of cardstock and ink blended it with some Abandoned Coral and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Inks. This panel was layered under my die-cut panel and I white heat embossed a sentiment in the center. The sentiment is from an older CDD stamp set that is no longer available.

Now it was time to build the card bu I felt I needed my card base ink-blended, as well. I used the same Distress Oxide Inks in Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick. To my card base I added a a layer from velum, my ink-blended layer that goes behind the die-cut panel and then by die-cut panel. 

I could have called it complete at this point but I decided to add once more finishing touch with some Strawberry Coulis Nuvo Jewel Drops.

The full February Release, including the Heart Mandala Die, is now available in the CDD SHOP.
