Welcome to our February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  This month's stamp from Close to My Heart is "Home Sweet Home" and is available exclusively through your Close to My Heart consultant from February 1 - 28, 2013.  You can purchase this stamp set for only $5 with a qualifying purchase.


I created a set of cards using this stamp set:

I used our new For Always paper pack to create these cards.  These are A2 size cards measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  I cut the heart using the Artiste Cricut cartridge ourt of Ruby cardstock.  The image can be found on page 72, E2, Accent 3, < VlntnDay > cut at 4" x 4 1/2" (using the Fit to Length key).  I stamped the sentiment on the front using Black ink.

The heart border on the inside of the card was also cut using the Artiste Cricut cartridge.  You can find the border on page 72, E2, Shift, Accent 2, < Valentne > cut at 3/4" x 4 1/2".  I used the hearts that came from the border as borders on the inside.
