For my project today I’m using the Celebrate You Thinlit Dies and the matching stamp set Amazing You.

Stampin' Cat ESAD Amazing You Celebrate You

My card base is Basic Black with layers of Bermuda Bay and Whisper White.  I’ve stamped the flower and words from Amazing You in Archival Basic Black ink.  I stamped a second flower then coloured it with Bermuda Bay.  I then fussy cut it and popped it up on dimensionals over the top of the original flower.

I’ve layered strips of Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape on some Whisper White card stock then die cut the word “Celebrate” with the Celebrate You Thinlit Dies.

The three leaf die cuts are from Bouquet Bunch Framelits and I’ve done one in Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, one in Vellum and one in Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape.  A Clear Faceted Gem finishes off my flower quite nicely.

My lovely assistant Marvi was helping me photograph the card.  Being a card model is clearly exhausting for him.
