Designs To Die For

Good morning and welcome back to Day 5 of the January Papertrey Ink countdown! I have a serious soft spot for clever dies, especially those featuring words or phrases. So the products we're introducing today had me at "hello." You're going to love them too. I just know it!

Aloha Card

To start my card today I began by die cutting the Cornered shape from white cardstock and using it to gauge where I needed to place my mask (since I knew I didn't want any color showing behind the die cut. I used post-it notes to protect that area and then sponged some Harvest Gold ink on the uncovered portion of my white card base. Next, I stamped the Boho Rounds images onto that same area using Summer Sunrise.

Then, I stamped Palm Prints leaves directly on the card base as well as on a handful of die cuts. I layered the die cut leaves over the flat leaves to give a bit of dimension.

Next, I die cut the Cornered shape a second time, this time from Raspberry Fizz. I nested the "aloha" letters into the white die cut and secured them with a bit of foam adhesive. I added a bit more around the edges before adhering that piece to the card front. I finished up by adding clear glitter to the Raspberry Fizz letters to give them a bit of sparkle!

Thank you so much for joining me today. Make sure to check in with Nichole, Amy, Ashley, Betsy, Dawn, Heather, Kay, Laurie S., Laurie W., and Melissa to see more of this month's release. Have a great day and I'll see you back here tomorrow with a few more projects.
