Oh Happy Day

It was my first time using the thin cuts from Close to My Heart when I was creating this card:

I've learned that when I make cards, it would be nice if it can serve as a multi-purpose one.  For instance, this one says "Oh Happy Day" could be used for a birthday card or other occasion for celebration.  And this one has the color scheme and patterns that's good for guys of various age groups.  Isn't that nice?  I should try making more cards like this one!

Guess what I used this card for?  It was a Valentine's Day card.  I wanted to make something other than the traditional red and hearts and the stamp set My Anchor from Close to My Heart inspired me to try something new!  It has sentiments that say "I love our adventures together", "I'd lost without you", "You're my anchor", which are all great form a V-day card, don't you think?  Click here to see the images of this set.

I also have the coordinating dies for this set.  I love that the dies come in the same package as the stamp set, so storage won't be a problem (uniform packaging makes organization much easier!).  The other thing I appreciate a lot is the magnetic sheet that comes with it.  So thoughtful!  Oh one more thing, the dies were already separated, so we don't need to cut them apart for use!  I have bought dies from other companies where the dies are attached together.  I don't mind cutting them apart, but just a bit concerned that the tiny little connecting pieces would go all over the place.  Close to My Heart has done an awesome job in packaging its dies!  Yay!
