Hello Friend

Hello everyone, I'm sharing a fun card with you using three metal die sets available from My Craft Spot. This is being featured over at My Craft Spot today.
The metal dies I used are the Tiny Banners & Toppers, Small Alphabet and the brand new Word Quotes as well as Posy Baker Twine, all are available in the My Craft Spot shop -HERE.

I love the new Word Quote die and have already made several cards using this die. I have made a few photo tutorials on my blog of ideas on how to use this 4 piece metal die set, view the tutorials -HERE.

The banner was fun to make, I just cut 5 of the banners to use from the Tiny Banner metal die set, added a flower on each banner using the Small Alphabet metal die set, the letters were cut from that set as well.
I strung each banner on a piece of Posy Baker Twine.  The bows I tied individually then hot glued them the end of each banner.
I used one die from the Word Quotes die set ... the word "friend" (remember to save the dot for the "i") I cut it directly on a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of patterned paper.
Close up of the banner.
And even closer.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, have a wonderfully creative day!

Here is a quick and easy card using the new Word Quotes metal die set as well as the new Fancy Edges 2 metal die set.
I have photo tutorials of how to use the Word Quotes on this post -HERE. check it out, you'll be glad you did.
 The phone shape was cut using my Silhouette Cameo, I found the shape by just doing a google search.  I added a few lines and dots to the phone and also made a few faint score lines on each end of the phone as well.
I love the loopy phone cord, it's one of the metal dies from the Fancy Edges 2, there are 7 dies in this set, two of which are this loopy border shape, this is the smaller of the two. I did have to bend the loopy border a bit so I could get it to curve where I wanted before gluing it down.

I used the word die "hello" from the Word Quotes metal die set and cut it directly out of the printed patterned paper that was a 4" x 5 1/4" size, layered it directly on black cardstock measuring 4 1/8" x 5 3/8".  The card base was ivory cardstock size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded.
Inside of the card, I added the same loopy border.
And now I'm so excited to give one of the new metal die sets away that I had the privilege of designing, this was donated by Kimberly -thank you Kimberly! Word Quotes metal die set (set of 4) will go to one fantabulous winner, for your chance to win, follow the steps below......
