Go Confidently...

I don't usually enter more than one entry in a challenge, but the Scrappy Saturday Challenge on Live, Laugh, Love, speaks to some of my favorite themes. I made a Love card earlier, and so I thought I'd make a Live card. Taking the sketch from this week's Mojo Monday Challenge, I decided to further challenge myself to create a monochromatic WHITE card, which is always an interesting process.



I took my absolute favorite quote of all time from Taylored Expressions's New Beginnings set as a jumping off point. One of my kind commenters asked me how I made this shaped card from a single sheet of cardstock with a die, and I've posted photos below and I hope they show how easy it is. Today's card uses the same technique and employs a number of dies to create texture and visual interest. Plus, who can resist a little bit of bling to get us heading off in the direction of all our dreams?


with card folded, line up the die along the fold, just over the edge
be sure to align so a portion of the fold remains intact
