Are you feeling the love? Us too!

Handmade card from Donna Mikasa featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

We’ve seen so many variations on the Joyful Heart Bears, but this one from Donna has an unexpected twist that is just so fun! She’s replaced the heart balloon included in the image with a heart shaker (the latest Free with $60 Die-namics!) and sentiment from the new Heart Art stamp set. Her simply shaded background adds color and contrast without detracting from that sweet bear.

The Hearts Entwined Die-namics has been super popular – this intricate layering of hearts is a standout look no matter how you use it! Laurie has opted to back the die cut with acetate to create her shaker look. The large-scale shaker panel is an unforgettable use of a gorgeous design.
