One Stamp Set

$25 Gift Card (Regular Priced Items)

Here is what I made..

I chose to make a card using the colors for inspiration. The blues made me think of the sky. I thought it would be fun to make a card using the stamps and dies from The Sky Is The Limit set. I didn't use my Cricut at all for this one. I hand cut all the layers, used a corner punch, and the CDD stitched cloud and kite dies. I went with the kraft card stock base to represent the cake in the inspiration photo.

I embossed the white layer with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder to show through the negative cloud die cutouts. I stamped the kite on some Doodlebug paper and paper pieced it. I hand cut the pink chevron banner and used a sentiment from the Garden Cuties stamp set. I added the crinkle ribbon bow to make it pop and finally embellished with some blue sequins from the CDD Emerald Island sequin mix.

This is definitely not my typical style of card. No Cricut and no critters haha!! But I've been trying to step outside my comfort zone a bit.  I hope you like it!

Here are pics of the CDD sets I used. You can find these and so much more at the Craftin Desert Divas Shop!

Thanks so much for hoppin by!!

Have a blessed day!
