Hello! Today I am sharing two heart-themed cards with a tip on how to add dimension to sentiment die cutting. This is a very fun technique that adds a lovely finished to a card. All you need is a sentiment die set, a die cutting machine, cardstock and double-sided adhesive sheet. This post is also part of the current Heart-Themed collection for the Cards for Little Hearts card drive. The deadline to send in cards is February 1st.
