Don’t tell Mr Papercraft, but sometimes I will buy a die set (or stamp set) just for one favourite image. I like to think it’s a good strategy because usually you end up loving the other images or dies too and then it’s a whole fabulous set with lots of potential.
I really love the ‘just want to say’ die from the Floral Gallery Dies.
I love the tone and style the die adds to the card. Start here then add the rest of your theme. I needed a card for a gorgeous new baby and his parents to go with a parcel I was sending and ‘just wanted to say’ congratulations – this was perfect!
I added a baby onesies from a favourite retired set – Made with Love and the sentiment from the new Many Messages stamp set and coordinating die. It stamps and cuts a whole range of sentiments – ready for any occasion.
I used Adhesive Sheet on the Basic White cardstock before I cut it, which makes it super easy to apply to your card. For this card, I layered it on Seaside Spray cardstock and then fussy just around the whole sentiment.
Tip: use the negative space of the die cut out to line up your letters perfectly!
I love the range of blue tones in the Stampin’ Up! Range. I’ve used quite a few of them here – Misty Moonlight for the card base, Night of Navy for the card mat, Seaside Spray for the blue accents and Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends for the baby onesie.
The DSP coordinates perfectly and was a surprise love from this Jan-June 2021 Mini Catalogue DSP range. It’s one of the patterns in the Sand & Sea DSP – not a pack that I had my eye on, but oh my! It’s amazing when you see all the sheets in person. The scalloped edge die is a favourite from the Oranate Borders Dies. And I love having white twine back on offer in the Snail Mail Combo Pack.
I hope you have a wonderful crafty day!
