I got a bunch of brand new craft supplies in the mail the other day so I decided to use some of my new supplies to make my husband this new interactive card. It's fun to use those new supplies. I used the interactive die for the card mechanism, a heart die that I had never used, and even the "pattern paper" inside and out is a stamp. I bought this check stamp so that I could make any color of buffalo check that I wanted. It actually stamped pretty evenly. I love it. I also bought a smaller check stamp also. I hope it stamps as well as this one did. There was only one little spot I had to reink a couple times to get it even. I think I will try a blue on blue or pink on pink might be fun or even red and black check. The inside squares are stamped with a big word stamp too. I orignally thought this would be pretty stamped in brown on a light beige paper for an aged look, but I like how it turned out in black and white for this card. Men's cards are so hard for me.

Here's another swing card I made using my left over paper and cuts. I think they go well together! Loving the little bug and dots and stripes. Hope it makes someone smile!
I have started to make a few layouts again after quite a long break. It feels good to be creative again. I found a Facebook Group called meandmycricut and Pat's layouts are amazing. She uses a lot of big die cuts which is actually relatively new to me. I usually only make things that fit on a top and bottom border. It's been fun to try some new things and to create again. I absolutely love this black, white and blue piece of paper that I had in my stash. Wish I had more than 1 sheet!
