What A Finish!

Hi friends! Hope you’ve had a great week! This month’s Anything Goes with Dies Challenge is live over at Happy Little Stampers and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project with you today! I was commissioned by a co-worker to create a baby card for her race-car-driving friend who is expecting a baby boy this month, and the Cottage Cutz Baby Sleeping On Moon die set paired with a digital finish line flag definitely fit the bill!

I cut all the baby, moon and cloud elements from thick white cardstock and colored them with Studio 71 alcohol markers. I cut out the flag and created a pole for it. Then I stamped the sentiment with the Stampin’ Up Alphabet Labeler stamp set, trimmed the strip of cardstock and embellished it with some skinny Washi Tape.


I created a background panel with blue cardstock layered on black, and added the flag. I pieced together the baby on the moon and strategically placed it on the flag, then placed the stars and clouds in the background. The final touch was adding the sentiment across the bottom.


I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of cardstock used on the front and then stamped the sentiment. I added a small stitched heart die cut.


One more look… I’m so smitten with this die set and I love how this card turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
