Hope you all had a happy holiday weekend and spend some time in your craft space. We had a clambake at my sister’s over the weekend. The sea food was amazing. I also organized in my craft room. That was fun, too!!

I put this card together yesterday and wanted to share it with you. The Happiness Abounds Bundle and the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper make it so easy to create pretty cards and projects. The Happiness Abounds Suite was made for the Deckled Rectangles Dies. I haven’t inked up the edges of my Deckled Rectangles die cuts. That detail may happen soon!

Today’s Card Bits & Pieces

  • I went with a Basic Black card base today. I thought Basic White and Petal Pink would be a striking contrast with black.
  • My card base is an A-2 cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.
  • I die cut three layers using the Deckled Rectangles. One in Petal Pink, and two Basic White.
  • I used one Basic White for my card front and one is on the card’s inside.
  • The Basic White layer is die cut and embossed with the large pop up die (if you look closely at the die cut layer, you’ll see tiny embossed/cut petals you can pop up to create dimension with the die) from the Blooming Happiness Dies.
  • You can see, I offset the rectangle layers, making sure my layer corners are about the same distance from the edges of the card on all sides. This helps me know I center my layers even though they’re offset.
  • The flowers are die cuts from the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper and attached with Dimensionals.
  • The sentiment, stamped with Melon Mambo ink and attached to a die cut label, is also attached with Dimensionals.
  • The die cut label for the sentiment is from the All That Dies.
  • The All That Dies include versatile label dies. If you haven’t seen them, they’re worth a look.
  • I embellished with a few 2022 – 2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots.

So, find a beautiful flower cluster, attach it to an embossed Deckled Rectangle, add a few Matte Dots and create something “wonderful in every way”!

… the only limitation is your imagination!
