Now to my card! I have to say, I love, love, love this card. I love how it turned out. I surprised myself on this one. I hope you like it, too! Here is the front:

My Edwin stamp is entitled "Edwin with Stolen Heart." He's from the Sweet Crazy Love Collection. I think he is one of the most adorable Edwin stamps. Here are the links to the products used on the front of this card:

Edwin with Stolen Heart

Puffy Clouds Die

Doo-hickey So Wrapped Starlight Folded Tag

Here are the photos of the interior:

On this panel, I used items from my stash. I wanted to keep the masculine feel by adding the burlap tag. You can find the leave die here:

Magnolia Leaf and Swirl Die

Here is the right panel:

Do you just love that heart die? I love how delicate it is while being able to be made strong looking by using a dark brown color.

Memory Box Bingham Heart Die

You should take some time to visit the Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps store. Honestly, I keep going back and finding more goodies in stock! One example would be the brand spankin' new DooBeePops Honeycomb Paper! The add a wonderful dimension to your cards! Also, Diana has a wonderful stock of Wee Stamps! These are simply adorable images. Check them out!
