Good morning y'all! Today starts a new challenge over at the Sisterhood of Crafters. My Sistah' Vickie has chosen a theme of "USING DIES & PUNCHES". The challenge lasts about 2 weeks so you have plenty of time to come on over and play along with us.
I have had this thought in my mind for some time to make this style card. I got some new Doodlebug SPRING GARDEN Paper pad and Sprinkles that were just released and for some reason when I saw the paper I thought, "Heck I am gonna do that idea!"...lol I thought it was perfect for this challenge theme.
Close up of the stitched dies. Sadly it doesn't show how awesome these dies are! It even leaves the stitching on the negative piece that you don't use.
First I used my Double Stitched Scallop dies from Craftin' Desert Divas along with one sheet of the double sided Doodlebug paper. I simply would flip the paper back and forth to use both of the patterns and to achieve the stitching in the right areas. Next I took the HELLO die from the CDD Pocket Pieces Hello die set in solid black and put it in the upper right hand corner. Now I struggle big time with simple cards so I tried to to some things with the sentiment, HELLO. Well after redoing the card 2 times and the word HELLO 7 times I gave up and said NOPE, no more for me!! Simple it is!!! LOL I honestly don't know why I struggle so much with simple card!! It should be the easiest!!! To finish the card off I used the new Doodlebug Bright MATTE Sprinkles.
Have a great day!
