Die Cut Focals

Continuing our Friday focus on where to get focals for cards, today's example uses a die-cut.  Here are the specifics about this card:
  • This die-cut came to me in a swap and I can't remember who it came from or what they said about it, so can't give proper credit unless you recognize it and let me know!  
  • The background is from the Debbie Mumm Nursery Rhyme Matstack (made for Jo-Ann's fabrics & crafts & manufactured by DCWV)  
  • I matted the die cut on pink cardstock for 2 reasons: I wanted the heart showing through the die cut to be pink, and I was sending it for a baby girl.  
  • The greeting was created with white ink (White Daisy from Close to My Heart) and a stamp from an acrylic baby-themed set from Fiskars.  
  • A ribbon finishes it off (the colors look better in person!)
This gives me a quick and easy card for that new little one.
