Congratulations is the Heart2Heart Challenge Theme

This week on the Heart2Heart Challenge Blog we are sharing 'Congratulations' inspired projects.

My card starts with a value pack card 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" base (love the card base and envelope value pack), a Pixie cardstock piece 5" x 3 3/4" matted with Black at 5 1/8" x 3 7/8".

A White Daisy piece at 4 1/2" x 3 1/4" stamped with a the van image from this month's Stamp of the Month, The Long Journey Home (S1606) towards the bottom right. I left enough room to add the shimmer trim arrow.

I stamped it a second time on a scrap piece of White Daisy in pixie and paper pieced the bottom section of the black image in with the cutout from the Pixie stamped image -- love Pixie!!

Congratulations, from the stamp set Smarty Pants (1649), is stamped above and to the left of the van and I added some Pixie hearts from the Stamp of the Month.

The inside message is my Dr. Suess favorite, Oh, the places you'll go!!

This could be graduation, new car, first job, first apartment, new house, well, just about anything.

And now it is your turn to play along with us over at Heart2Heart!!

Calypso and the Split Panel Card

One of my Rockin' heART team members, Darlene Smyly, taught us how to create a Split Panel card at a recent class. It was so much fun!!

Here is a 4 1/4" x 11" top folding White Daisy card. Fold the card from the top in half at 5 1/2", you can score first before you fold.

Place the fold line on the 2" mark on your trimmer and cut. This will leave you with the 2" x 4 1/4" panel for the top of the split panel.

Take the leftover piece, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", and cut 2" from the 3 1/2" side.  This will leave you with a 2" x 4 1/4" for the  bottom panel.

The remaining 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece may be used for the sentiment piece which will attach the top and bottom panels, which is what I did. I stamped one of the flamingos from the Tickled Pink (C1651) stamp set

I cut a Black cardstock mat for it at 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".

To dress up the card, I cut panels from Calypso (X7210B) pattern paper, my rule of thumb is to cut t…
