Today’s card was so much fun to make. It has so many elements that I love…cute little flowers, polka dots and pretty eyelet trim. But the star of the card is the thinlit from the Celebrate You thinlits that FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-a-bration. HERE’S another card I made using this die…
I’m playing along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge and chose the third column down: fancy border, wildflower, one-word sentiment AND third column diagonal: fancy border, green, popped up.
I pulled out some under-loved products for this card. The fancy border was created using the Decorative Ribbon Border punch. Punches are so easy to use and this one creates such a pretty border. I really do need to use this more!
The “celebrate” die was cut with a pattern from a retired Designer Series Paper. I knew I wanted to use polka dots and they needed to be small so I pulled out some long retired DSP that I kept just because I love polka dots. To create a 3D effect, I also cut the die out with black fun foam and layered the DSP on it. This gave the perfect dimension.
The cute little flowers are stamped from the Bike Ride stamp set and colored with Stampin’ Write markers. Even though the Stampin’ Blends are all the rage right now, the Stampin’ Write markers still come in handy, especially when coloring small images. I cut them with the coordinating Build a Bike framelits. This bundle has so many adorable accessory stamps and dies…sometimes these are the most fun!
The inside sentiment is from the Celebrate You stamp set available in the Annual Catalog. Isn’t this a fun font!
