It's the weekend again and I hope you have a fantastically crafty one!
Today is the last project in my Week 8 Challenge - Uses for Die Sets. Well, maybe not quite! I made two projects yesterday, one was this card and the second I'll share with you tomorrow. It's a tatty cardboard box I use to store an assortment of glues in. It would have been easier to dispose of it and get a new one but, I'm a paper-crafter and knew I could renovate it. I used the Deco Labels Framelits for part of the decoration, so more about that tomorrow.
For project 5, I decided I would make a shaped easel card using the dies and I'm really pleased with the result. Using this die set the finished card is smaller than the normal size I make. The finished size is 4 1/4" x 3 5/8" and fits into one of our note card envelopes - the width, just about and the length has about 3/4" spare.
To start with, I die cut a normal-size card in Blushing Bride using the no. 4 die by placing the edge of the die just above the fold. I folded one side in half towards the centre, to form the easel support. Then I did a single die cut, also in Blushing Bride. I used no. 2 to cut one Whisper White and no. 3 to cut two in Whisper White.

I stamped Happy Birthday To You from the Circle of Spring Stamp Set and punched it out with the 1" circle punch and layered it a Whisper White scalloped circle punched with the 1 1/4" scalloped circle punch.
All stamping was done with Blushing Bride ink on Whisper White card stock. Finally, I adhered everything together!
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
