Dandy Wishes


I began with a Coastal Cabana card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I used the largest Stitched Rectangles Die to cut a layer of Brights 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper in a Coastal Cabana Dot.

Next, I used the third largest Stitched Rectangles Die to cut Basic White Cardstock, which I framed with a 1/16″ border of Magenta Madness.


Before gluing the layers to the card base, I embossed the Basic White, top layer, with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder for some texture.


Now for the fun plant! This great die is in the Dandy Wishes Die Set, which I used to cut the three colors of cardstock: Thick Basic White, Bumblebee, and Magenta Madness.

You can see the die in the first picture, and the complete set in my Product List below. I attached the plants with glue on the stems, up to the base of the plants, leaving the tops free.

At the spot where the plants gathered, I attached the sentiment with Dimensionals. “Celebrate” was stamped in Memento Black Ink on Thick Basic White Cardstock, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die.

The sentiment is from a favorite, retiring stamp set, Itty Bitty Greetings, and the In Color Enamel Dots have already retired, but I HAD to use them.


Continue being inspired by this bright color combo, then hang your creation in our gallery, please.
