Throwback Thursdays: Delicate Details

Hello all! It’s time for another throwback with Papertrey Ink! Today we get to showcase one of my *favorite* past die collections… Delicate Details!! Yayyyyyaaaaaa Seriously I put these die cuts on everything… I add them to the bottom of tags, hitched on the string of tags, to gift bags, to cards… everything!! But today I wanted to show you how to create a quick and simple card using the largest die cut as a focal point.

I cut out the largest die in Enchanted Evening and Limeade Ice and layered them on my card base.

I popped up two white panels on either side so that the die cuts are now set back into the card.

The sentiment is from Keep It Simple: Thank You and using two of the fonts, it adds an extra bit of color as well.

This is definitely one of the most well known and popular scripture verses and rightfully so. It’s so beautiful and incites an incredible amount of empowerment and hope. On this card I paired it with two of the sweet brushed birds in an array of blue-greens and purples with the sentiment standing out in a nice True Black.

The dogwood flowers are unique and have a simple elegance that anyone can love. They pair really beautifully with the missing you and sorry sentiments from the latter two sets.

CASology Challenge Entry

Hey everyone! This is my second blog post for today, check out my first one with a couple simple birthday cards here. πŸ™‚

One of my 2016 New Years Resolutions (I know, some of you might think they are pointless or dumb hehe) is to start entering card making challenges! So today is my entry into CASology’s Week 179: Simple challenge. Here it is:

This was a really funΒ  CASology challenge for me because I typically find myself adding mountains of layers on my cards, so trying to pair everything down and just get to the heart of it was definitely a welcomed challenge. πŸ™‚
