Hello and welcome!
I’m SO glad you stopped by to see what crafty inspiration I have today! I’m up on the Heffy Doodle Blog with “Stretch Your Supplies” card series!!! It means that I’m focusing on how to get more from your craft supplies and think out of boxes, giving new life to your crafty stash! So let start!
Today I decided to stretch some dies from my crafty stash by mixing and matching a couple of different styles and collections. To start, I prepared a full card front background with a fun faux stitched woodgrain texture. Then I die cut a jumbo sentiment to use as a focal central point on my card with a shadow layer made by gluing together an additional dark red layer slightly offset. Finally I embellished the card front with lots of floral elements die cut from Heffy Doodle coloured cardstock and gorgeous recently released sequins.
