Just For You

Hey friends! Hope you are doing well...we're having record breaking heat today...YEA! We've spent a great portion of today inside...it's been great! I got a few more projects finished up in the way of organizing my house...it's coming! So, I feel like it's been productive, inspite of the heat! I just can't get out to the garage this week..WAY too hot for that!

This card is one of those color combinations that I love...but was a bit nervous to try! I am happy with the results...I love the lattice die from SU!
I started this card wanting to use my new flower layers BigZ XL die...it's so fun! I also wanted to use these golden seed beads...and that is how this card was born! I started by running some Basic Gray and Summer Sun cardstock through my Big Shot to make my flowers. The die actually cuts 3 flowers at one time(just fyi.) but I just wanted one of each color. I used some PVA liquid adhesive from Stix2 to adhere the seed beads to my flower. I smooshed the beads into the glue and then put the flower out of the way to dry.

Another fun thing that I used was my new Lattice die! It is a BigZ so it cuts through almost anything you can think of! I used some of my double sided adhesive paper-that can be used in a die cut machine, with punches etc., from Stix2. To use the adhesive one side gets stuck to your paper and then after you cut the image you want-from your machine or punch-just peel the other side of the paper off to expose your sticky side. I stuck my lattice to my Going Gray layer of cardstock. I love that the double sided adhesive paper works so well with punches/die cut machines...it doesn't leave any sticky residue at all!

I layered my lattice layer onto a layer of Summer Sun cardstock and then adhered it all to my Basic Gray cardbase. I wrapped some Basic Gray taffeta ribbon around the bottom of my card and then stamped my sentiment "just for you" from my new Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set with Basic Black onto my card.

The last part of this card was layering the Summer Sun and Basic Gray flowers and then attaching them to the card.

I hope you had a great day! See you tomorrow!:)
