H2H Challenge - Checkerboard

The challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart is to do something with a checkerboard. I immediately thought of incorporating glitter paper with my creation and since I love the new Blossom paper pack, I decided to use that as well. Working with a 6x6 card made applying square shapes to form the checkerboard much easier than trying to work with a rectangular shaped card! 

I used my Cricut to cut the doily shape and then stamped the sentiment. I didn't intend for the card to sit in this direction but it ended up looking better this way than with the doily at the top, so that's the way it ended up - sometimes playing around with something leads to unlikely results... 

Be sure to try out your hand with a checkerboard creation - a card, scrapbook page or some other creation this week or all month and enter it at Heart 2 Heart. You have all of April to enter any of April's challenges!

  1. This is such a pretty card, and that doily on the side is perfect.

  2. Very pretty card and love the glitter. Glad you're not in the challenge, this card would be hard to beat.
