Today’s card started as a bold and graphic design – I was ready to make this cutout from the Flowering Vine Dies pop on a card. As I played with the cutout and layered in soft, sweet colors to coordinate, though, the bold design quickly became a soft, sweet one. Simple layering and a lovely sentiment really softened this cutout and gave me a card I’m happy to share. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Vine Design. This card started with the rectangular cutout from the Flowering Vine Dies, sold separately or as a part of the Vine Design Bundle. I cropped this rectangle from Pretty Peacock cardstock, and it sat on the edge of my desk for more than a week. During the week, I placed it over different patterns and colors to find a bold way to showcase the gorgeous cutout. In the end, I settled on a simple presentation that gave me just what I wanted. Here’s a look at the Vine Design Bundle: The last time I shared one of these dies was my Happy New Year card that kicked off 2021.

- Heal Your Heart. Heal Your Heart is just one of the Sale-a-Bration offerings you can select as your free gift with a $50 order. The sentiment stamp set is a lovely mix of sentiments that are perfect for saying “thank you” and some beautiful ways of saying, “I’m thinking of you.” Just beautiful! Here’s a look at the Heal Your Heart stamp set: Here’s a closer look at this gorgeous sentiment, which I adorned with a Pool Party heart from the Stitched Be Mine Dies: Sale-a-Bration only runs through February 28 this year. If you have a list of Sale-a-Bration products you want to earn before Sale-a-Bration ends, I hope you’ll place an order before these benefits disappear. When you wake up on March 1, these products will not be in the online store. If you’d like to review all of the Sale-a-Bration options, CLICK HERE.
- Soft, Sweet Color Combination. You already know how much I love blues, greens and aquas (the mix of blues and greens). While today’s card started with the cutout of Pretty Peacock cardstock, I wasn’t certain about how to frame it until I came across this trio of beautiful tones. Together, they are one of my all-time favorite color combinations. If you like this mix of Soft Sea Foam, Pool Party and Pretty Peacock as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference: As you are making the list of things you’d like to buy to earn more Sale-a-Bration products, remember that the In Colors are retiring soon. Now might be a great time to restock your Pretty Peacock cardstock and reinkers. You’re welcome!
