This "spring" card design is one I found about three years ago at Splitcoast Stampers here. I thought it was unique enough to qualify for the "scoring" technique required for JustRite's current challenge. My card measures 4 inches square when folded flat because I used paper from Martha Stewart's 4" x 11" Valentine's Punch Pad.
I had wanted to die cut this largest Spellbinder's Nested Heart in Shrink Plastic ever since I got them and I was quite happy with how it turned out. My sentiment was created with JustRite Myriad Font Pro 50 point stamped with Stazon Jet Black ink. The die cut measures 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" and shrank to about 1 3/4" x 1 3/4". If you want yours to be a charm, don't forget to punch a large hole at the top and use a large font for your sentiment, as those will both shrink proportionately also! Because different brands shrink differently, check your package instructions.

I added the Spellbinder's Eyelet Square die to the front of my card, laced a narrow flat fiber through some beads and then through the top eyelet and tied a knot. I enjoyed just playing with some products I'd had for a while and hope you'll check out this fun "spring" card and try one yourself!
Edited to Add: I used Frosted Ruff N' Ready shrink plastic and Copic R46 to color my heart die cut before stamping my sentiment. Also, I use my embossing heat gun to shrink my items, not my oven!
