Hello blogging friends! Today, is the first day of CHA! The day when all of the New Releases are revealed!! I can't wait to see all of the New crafty goodness!
Today, I have a birthday card to share with you using some of the New Two-Scoops paper from Bazzill which can be found at Discount Cardstock. The color I used is called Two Scoops Prickly Pear. I know so many of you love the Dotted Swiss and the Two-Scoops is a step up--it's like a Two Tone Dotted Swiss!! Gotta love that! I also used some of the New Release die templates from Spellbinders, July Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon and stamps from The Rubber Cafe'.
To start I die cut the S4-368 Hexagon shape and stamped the E-549 Daisy Bouquet image and added the color with Copic Markers.
Then I stamped the sentiment on to Simply Smooth White and die cut a smaller S4-368 Hexagon shape. Before removing the die template I used the die as a stencil and inked the inside edges with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink.
Next I die cut the border using Two Scoops Prickly Pear paper and S5-138 Octagon Stripes and Accents die template. This is a cut-fold-tuck die template so after I die cut the shape then I folded and tucked along the cut lines. The Two-Scoops paper is perfect for this because it has the two tones of paper. Then I threaded a piece of yellow floral printed ribbon from the July Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Here is a close up of the border. I also added a yellow handmade crochet flower that my aunt Gail made and I added a pearl to the center.
I die cut a larger S4-368 Hexagon to use as a mat behind the daisy image and then I lightly sanded the die cut to reveal the lighter color and the Swiss Dot pattern on the paper.
Here is a close up of the card front with the layered die cuts.
I also used S5-131 A2 Matting Basic A, S5-132 A2 Matting Basic B for the matting. I have to say I am loving the Card Creator die templates--easy peasy and no measuring!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I am off to watch LIVE from CHA--I can't wait to see all of the New Release!! I hope you have a Fantastic Day!!
