Hey everyone!

Thanks for joining me at the start of December release week for My Favorite Things!

NewReleaseCountdown_Day5

For Countdown Day 5, we’re showcasing Birdie Brown’s Adorable Elephants Stamp Set and Die-Namics, and the Stitched Mini Scallop Circle, Rectangle, Square and Oval STAX Die-namics! Here’s my card:

You must know by now how much I love to stretch the use of my dies, and this card is no exception. I also like playing with inlaid die-cutting and that’s how I created this card – I began by die-cutting a series of frames using the Stitched Mini Scallop Square STAX Die-namics.

I basically left them all intact so that one die was sitting within another, from largest to smallest, secured them with some washitape and die-cut them from some white cardstock.

I then colour each frame with some ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens and then inlaid them back together again on to a sticky surface. Then, I die-cut the piece once more, but this time with the Stitched Mini Scallop Circle STAX Die-namics to give me two semi-circles.

I foam mounted each half to a card base and stamped a sentiment from Adorable Elephants in the centre, along with some flowers and a butterfly.

I coloured the butterfly with the same markers and added some detail with a white gel pen to finish!
