Happy Labor Day!
I am in Mexico with Hubby this week, so my posts are scheduled.
I like holiday post time, because I get to show you things that have been languishing on my camera for a while LOL.
Today's card hasn't been hanging around too long.
I need a congratulations card for a colleague and I wanted to make something a bit different for her.
I used my new fave Dutch Doobadoo Fan stencil with some texture paste and once it was dry, I die-cut it to size using a stitched rectangle die.
The little border dies were cut using random scraps of paper and they are new because when I was last heading home JT asked me if I needed anything as she was doing a Craft Superstore order..I didn't 'need' anything but these awesome dies were on sale... She kindly bought them for me as a gift, but she was a bit ambivalent about them..
I really like them and thought the 3 I chose to use here worked really well, I secured them to the paste panel using mini staples.
I thought I had a couple of congrats dies to choose from, turns out I totally do not, I only have the one you see, which is nice, but was not what was in my head (cue purchase of new die). This one is part of a Simon Says Stamp set that I love (don't think they sell it anymore), but I was thinking of a chunkier die here.
Anyway, I love the end result, leaving the paste as it is makes everything else pop and the random mix of colours and patterns in the border dies is fun.
