Two Valentine Challenges in One

 Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I have a new project to share with you that I have created for both the Love to Craft Challenge Blog and the Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge blog.  

I have seen this Cricut idea on Facebook in a few of my different groups and I just had to try it.

 It's a Valentine's Mandala.  I bought the cut file off Etsy and used cardstock and glitter cardstock to create the heart.  The heart is a total of 5 layers.

Here is a close up of the heart itself.

I then placed the heart on a piece of stripped glitter paper from Hobby Lobby and placed in a frame I brought at Dollar Tree.

A simple project, with most of the work being done by the Cricut, but what a striking piece of art.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment.

Then, join the challenges at Bitten by the Bug 2 with a Valentine's theme or Love to Craft Challenge Blog with an Anything goes theme.


  1. Beautiful. I have been experimenting with the mandalas too and this one is wonderful with the colors and sparkle you chose.

    1. Me too Denise. This is my first one, but not my last. Thanks Denise.

  2. What an intricate cut and sooo beautiful! The image looks beautiful in the frame.

  3. The Mandala layering is nice and the sparkle is wonderful. Not made a Mandala before and may need to give it a try.
