XOXO ~ SOUS Die Cut Challenge Jan. 25 & a FREEBIE!

TGIF, everyone!  It's time for another Stuck on U Sketches Die Cut Challenge!  YAY!  The challenge this time is to create a wreath around a photo using a die cut.  I adapted this challenge to fit a card, and I created a wreath around the mat on the label I used to create my shaped card.  Here's my project:

The card base for this card came from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Layered Labels 2 Cutting Files. I just mirrored one of the shapes and welded the two pieces together to create a card.  The fun little flying heart is from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Happy Heart Cutting Files (this week's Friday Freebie).  I also got the little hearts I created my wreath with from this file...I just used the "release compound path" function in Silhouette Studio to get rid of the facial features on the little heart.  Then, I made several smaller copies of the heart and adhered them around the oval on the label.  I added a stamp from Pink by Design's Love Always Stamp Set and some doodle marks, and my little card was all done.

If you have the ability to cut SVG or DXF files, you can pick up this sweet little free flying heart HERE (free through 1-31).

Now, it's your turn!  Head on over to Stuck on U Sketches to see what the other Design Team members created.  Then, link up your own project featuring a "wreath" made out of die cut shapes.  You have 2 weeks to enter, and we can't wait to see what you link up!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll come by tomorrow for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Valentine Blog Hop.  We'll have lots of PPPR Valentine's Day inspiration for you, and we'll  also have some fun blog candy available.  We hope to see you there!
