Paper Sweeties June Release Rewind

Friday, June 15, 2018

Welcome to the weekend, y'all!  The Paper Sweeties June Release is officially available for purchase in the shop; but before you're off to get yours, if you haven't done so already, I've cooked up a trio of bold, bright, happy, mini cards to share.  My family has a big move planned for next month, so I thought it would be fun to have something cute to carry around to pass our new address on to family and friends.  These minis fit the boot and were super easy to make.
I started these cards by die-cutting the window from the center of Bermuda Bay, Perfect Plum, and Strawberry Slush, 2-7/8" cardstock squares.  They were then backed with clear cardstock for a fun, real-life texture, before the inside bits of the window were replaced and it was grounded with the stamped, in Jet Black ink, "We've moved!" sentiment from Home Is Where Your Story Begins.
Before topping the window with a partially die-cut and partially hand-cut, Basic Black, cardstock, roof portion, which came from the For You Sweet Cuts die (I really wanted to have those familiar, Paper Sweeties, stitch lines embedded into this design.), I framed the square with white cardstock and silver-threaded, machine stitching and popped it off the surface of the 3-1/4" square, white, cardstock, card face with foam tape.  A length of white string, tied in a bow, completes the look.
Thanks, once again, for all your visits and the sweet messages you've left, for me, across the world wide web!  With the busy, summer schedules, we're taking it easy next month; but I've already got the August Release in hand and am excitedly beginning projects to share with all you.  Woohoo!  So, be sure to stop by to see what the rest of the Design Team has created to share; and have a truly sensational summer, friends!  XOXO
