For my first project I have to admit to being inspired by my fellow teammate and good friend Amy! She used the Cover Up Die: Pointelle with white cardstock and it made me swoon! :) I cut the cover up die out of white cardstock and then popped it up over a light pink cardstock. It's hard to see it peeking through in the picture but it is really pretty in real life, it has such a nice soft feel to it!
For the focal point, I die cut two of the new Speech Bubbles 2 shapes and layered them on top of each other so one was just slightly peeking under the bottom of the white. I stamped the hello (LOVE that font!) from the Just Sayin' Stamp set on the white bubble. I die cut two of the leaf shapes from the new Vintage Ink dies and then stamped the coordinating leaf images from the Vintage Ink stamp set on top to layer around the Speech Bubbles.
I cut my Petal Card Die with a double sided patterned paper so that when you open it up, the other side will also have a pattern on it. This paper (because I know you'll ask, heehee) is Fancy That & On Trend from My Mind's Eye. The flowers, cut with the Perky Posies Die Set, are adhered on to one corner.
When you open the card, the recipient will find the Boxed Up Birthday Greetings Die in the center.
If you're thinking about making cards for Teacher Appreciation Week the Petal Card Die would be perfect! How cute would a set be as a gift in different colors, maybe in a thank you theme, tucked into a little basket!? Hmmm...I feel another project coming on! :)
