The cutting part was a Little hurting, because I don't have an x-acto knife and I used a regular knife instead... But I'm so excited and happy with the card, it's so cute!

Wow! That looks fantastic! I like how you replaced the pull arrow with the heart. Thanks for sharing!

For some reason the pdf isn't giving an option to print it. Anyone know what could be the problem?

This was a really fun project. Obviously I took some liberties, and I hand drew in stead of printing, because I don't have a printer. I think my SO is going to love it! He's a huge fan of the Zelda series, and we've played almost all of the games together.

Wow! Nice job! It came out great, I can hardly tell you hand drew it. Thanks for sharing, and keep up the good work!

Nicely done! I am always glad when someone uses the "I made it!" comment button. Thank you for sharing!

Thanks, mate! I also left the two little glare-squares at upper left side of each heart when cutting; now the effect is preserved :))
