DT: Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies challenge

Hi! Another design team contribution to share with you today… this time my Anthing Goes with Dies one for Happy Little Stampers.

I actually made this card a couple of weeks ago for my friend Valerie who is my Stampin Up upline as her birthday is New Years Day.

I took some old dsp in bright and cheery colours and cut three square panels. I then decided to cut and emboss the Merriest Moments folder and do some cutting and amending to make a square frame. It was Valerie who gave me this idea as I saw she had done the same with some Christmas cards.

Then I added the stitched shape square on top. I also watercoloured onto the leaves using Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight and Gumball Green to keep the colours bright in keeping with the dsp.

I stamped and die cut some foliage from the Christmas Season set using the same colours. Always like using Christmas themed sets in a different way!

I layered them up and added this to the card as the main element. Now for the sentiment.

Of course Biggest Wish got used, as did Artistically Inked for the sentiment… one in white embossing on the yellow cardstock. Then I die cut the Butterfly and added some bakers twine underneath as the embellishment.

Finally I die cut three little butterflies as final elements.

For the inside of the card, some banners punched from the paper, some small butterflies also die cut and the sentiment stamped on a strip of white.

I also stamped the flap of the envelope and added a die cut butterfly to finish off!

Love this bright and cheery birthday card for my good friend Valerie. Lots of layers and interest, plus using those Christmas stamps, dies and embossing folder for a totally none Christmas feel card!

Happy crafting!

Catherine
