You Make Me Smile IMG0260
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!
