Older? Better!

Hello, everyone! It's Cassie here, and I'm back to share another card I made for Create A Smile. The new release just was available starting last Friday, and I'm loving the new products, so of course I had to use them for my card today. Let's jump in!

I wanted to create a highlighted area with the new Focal die so I thought I'd go with a birthday card and a nontraditional birthday treat! I also wanted some soft pastel colors, and this fortune cookie was perfect for that!

 I started the card by ink blending some mint green ink on an A2 size card panel. I also splattered some of the ink over another A2 size card panel, and then die cut the Focal die from it. This way I could see my ink blending through the die cut area. 

Next I did my stamping. I stamped the "older/better" sentiment from the Birthday Sampler stamp set onto the card panel in which I had die cut the Focal die from. I also stamped the fortune cookie from the new A Little Treat stamp set. That was colored in with Copic markers and fussy cut out. I adhered everything together and attached the cookie with some foam tape to make it stand out. 

 Focal Die: 

When you have a simple card design like this I think it's really smart to add dimension. That's why I popped up the fortune cookie. It seems like a really small thing, but it adds the perfect touch! 

If you're getting crafty with the new release (or any of the Create a Smile products) be sure to tag us so we can see your lovely creations!! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I'll see you again soon with another card!
