A challenge, but not a sketch challenge. :)

Hi!  Today's  cards are not based on a sketch challenge, that should be tomorrow since the SplitCoastStampers sketch challenge is on Wednesday.  :)

Today's cards are based on Monday's Try a new Technique challenge on SplitCoastStampers. 

The challenge is what they termed Inlay Die Cuts.  
Here is what I created.  I created a background by layering strips of patterned papers and then used a Quickutz die to cut the heart strip.  I then created two cards using the positive and negative parts of the die cut.   It was really a cool challenge and I enjoyed it tremendously. 

I'm sure I will be doing this again with different kinds of dies. 
Operation Write Home is almost ready to start sending Valentine's cards, so I made these based on love cards.  
I kind of used today as a vacation day, I definitely needed a break.  I made a bunch of Thanksgiving cards.  I hope to share those very soon!

Quote for the day: 

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!

Very cute cards. I will have to try that technique too. Anything for a new idea.

What a fun technique, Jeanette! Your cards are so very lovely, too. I'm glad you took a "vacation" day.
