Another day. Another day closer to the November release from My Favorite Things. Another day with a new projects from me that were made with the new stuff.
Let’s do this. Meet card #1.
I always dig the coverplate Die-namics from My Favorite Things. I mean, you get a whole background design. Add a little to it and you’ve got a card. Bam. Bam. Boom!
I used a brand new one for this card, the Chunky Chevron Cover-Up. I actually cut it out twice from cardstock so I’d have some extra inner pieces to work with.
Look close and you’ll see I threw caution to the wind and stacked a few of the pieces up on top of each other. I like that it just gives the card a little extra pop.
I also added a few sequins and stars, which were cut with the new Stitched Star STAX Die-namics. One can never really go wrong with stars, if you ask me.
I had a few inner pieces and stars left over so I added this little design to the back of my card. The words are from the Let’s Get Cozy stamp set, which I also used to stamp the sentiment.
And meet Card #2.
I know, this card looks all simple. It took a quite a few steps to pull it off though.
I cut two panels with the Chunky Chevron Cover-Up. I adhered one onto cardstock and then I set the dies from the Basic Stitch Lines Die-namics on top to add the stitched patterns. It looked like this. (Ok, so, word of the warning: This is a legit process photo. No fake staging here so you get not the best color.)
After I added stitch lines down all the rows, I set that second Chunky Chevron panel on top, slightly off-setting it an trimmed away the excess. (Again, legit photo ahead. No judging, please… wink!)
I adhered everything to the card and then had my wicked way embellishing the card up… all fancy like. 4
I think it turned out pretty good.
For a complete list of products I used to make these cards, check out the list below. Be warned: The links to the new, new, new stuff will work once the release made live at 10 p.m. EST on Tuesday, Nov. 3rd. Yeah. I know. Big sigh. 😉
