20140825_165739-1I wanted to make a little stash of cards for a crafty friend who has recently started a new job and has less time to craft than she’d like (ain’t that the truth for most of us?). She likes CAS style the best and my version of CAS is not always CAS. LOL  Soooo, I followed a wonderful, fun tutorial by Jennifer McGuire to make these window word die cards.

The frame dies I used were the 4th and 5th smallest dies from the Diemond Dies Top Note Die set. I kept one in the square orientation and used one in the diamond orientation. I used the “hello” word die from Mama Elephant, and the “hope” word die from Little Yellow Bicycle.

I rounded the corners to mimic the top note die roundness on most of the cards.  I added some faux stitching using a metallic pink Gelly Roll pen around one card. I dropped some tiny liquid pearl dots on the more muted hello cards.  I had fun “sprinkling” carefully chosen color coordinated sequins for some sparkle on all the cards.


The following is my video share of the cards:

These cards are also being entered into the Friday Mashup Die Cut Challenge,
