It is so easy to design lovely cards when you start with high quality dies, then add lovely sentiment stamps and gorgeous ribbon! I started my Celebrations wedding card by die cutting and attaching Die-Version’s Mr. and Mrs. Background to an A2 white card base. I stamped the lovely wedding wish from a set of stamps called “Wedding Sentiments” by Joy Clair and attached a beautiful crinkly bow from DL.ART. I added some black and white pearls to complete the card front. On the inside of the card, I stamped another wedding sentiment from Joy Clair and attached the heart cut out from the same Die-Versions Mr. and Mrs. Background die.


I was having way too much fun creating cards with the products from our blog sponsors to stop at one card to share today! I love shaker cards and used two new dies from Die-Versions on this baby girl card. I die cut Die-Version’s Onesie out of a pink polka-dotted cardstock as well as cut the larger square card front with that pink cardstock. I also die cut a bunch of the images from Die-Version’s Baby Confetti out of pastel cardstock scraps to use as shaker elements. I attached a piece of acetate under the square hole in the front of the card. Then I attached the pink onesie and stamped “It’s a Girl” and the baby footprints from a set of acrylic stamps called “Oh Baby” by Joy Clair. I turned the card front over and attached two layers of thin mounting tape all around the opening, then dumped in the Baby Confetti and pastel beads. I cut a white square card base and attached it to the card front. I added the perfect pink crinkled ribbon bow from DL.Art to complete the baby girl card. Here is the baby girl card all shook up:
