I’ve been combining die cut words w/ greetings for a while & these 2 sets make it so easy. On my first card, I used the You Bless Me So duo set. Don’t you love that smiley face? I thought it would be perfect as the center of a happy little flower. I die cut the white Lavish Layer & used a Pierced Circle to cut out the center. I used the same die on the patterned paper underneath, just for that something extra. After die cutting I large & 2 med Posies, I took the med white one & cut apart the petals to move them out just a tad from behind the polka dot layer.

I added the die cut You & greeting below along w/ a Bitty Butterfly & a couple more flowers in the corner. The You was stacked on top of a thick white layer to give it a little dimension.

Here’s a look at the inside.

My second card features the Sending My Love duo set. Did I mention the greetings are clear sets? Makes it sooooo easy to see where to stamp it. I wanted a fun, festive card and these dies are PERFECT. I made the center white panel to resemble a wrapped package, using the the Bitty Borders as added trim & the Mini Bow to top it off. I also added a small balloon (from the Happy Birthday dies) to go along w/ the larger Balloons & Streamers I used.

I added part of the banner across the upper left corner then added the stamped greeting w/ the Sending die cut above it. Did you also notice these fun, bright papers? These are so festive!

Ferris Wheel IMG02777
For my Ferris Wheel shaker card, I put the image in my Misti, stamped w/ Memento, colored w/ Copics then over stamped w/ Versafine. I die cut the entire panel w/ one of the matting basics, then used a stitched rectangle die for the inside. I had to do a little into the window around the ferris wheel by determining which areas to trim around & lift above the die to keep from cutting them off. I used a clear envelope for the shaker part..sprinkled a tiny bit of glitter & added the sequins, then taped the edges shut & attached it behind the opening.  I put the cut off background back behind the ferris wheel, added some foam tape all around the edges, then attached it to a slightly larger cobalt blue layer.

For the larger stamped background, I used the Ink Spots image and the sky blue ink all over the die cut layer then attached everything to my card. 

Here are the Copics I used.
