STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • The dies have it!  With my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, I used Bold Butterfly Framelits, Butterflies Thinlits and Seasonal Frame Thinlits Dies.

Seasonal Frame Thinlits Dies

  • I created the color and depth of the “grateful” sentiment (Seasonal Frames Thinlits Dies) by first cropping Blackberry Bliss card stock.

  • I layered a Sahara Sand die cut “grateful” into the “negative” portion of the Blackberry Bliss card stock.

  • On the back, I carefully layered bits of Stampin’ Dimensional to add height as well as hold “grateful” in place, being careful not to cover any of the open areas.

  • I love how the Always Artichoke peeks through the sentiment from the layer below.

  • A single Sahara Sand Candy Dot (Neutrals Candy Dots) accents and anchors the corner.
