Die Cuts with Paper Smooches

Hi everyone! I am SO excited to be the June Guest Designer for Paper Smooches and today kicks off my month with them! Have you seen the new release?! There are tons of cute new stamps and dies - you gotta check them all out HERE. I had a hard time choosing what I wanted to use first! I have so many ideas for this month - I'm glad I have 4 weeks of inspiration to share with you!

For my card today, I used the beautiful Stitched Flourishes 2 Dies and the fun Fringe 2 Die. As soon as I saw the stitched flourishes, I knew I wanted to pair it with the Hello Words Dies. I love how the word Hi is in a thicker stitch so it looks like it is bold and makes it pop more. I tucked in a piece of coordinating pink paper to give it more dimension. I cut the Fringe 2 Die twice and just lined them up behind my main panel to adhere. I used my scissors to "fluff" them for some added dimension. I finished off my card with some sequins. This is a fun card and would be very easy to create multiples of.

I even decorated the inside! I used this great sentiment from the Group Hugs stamp set. I added some more flourishes around the sentiment along with some stamping of the hearts in that same set. I absolutely adore the Stitched Flourishes 2 Dies and can see using them on so many cards as a great embellishment that doesn't add any dimension. I'm all about being able to mail my cards without extra postage! ;)
