Sue here with my first post for the Blog Blitz.

Have you been enjoying the new dies and all the fabulous inspiration by the design team? I know I have.

My card is for welcoming a new baby into the world.


I used the new Grand Stick Frame as a backdrop for the Stitched Elephant that I "quilted" with an embossing folder. The Grand Stick Frame die cuts two pieces so you can use just the outer frame portion or both pieces as I did. I also turned mine on the diagonal but you can use it straight on as well. This little frame is perfect to highlight and frame smaller die cuts.


For a thicker sentiment I die cut the Hip Little One a couple of times from card stock and layered them.


To add a bit of sparkle I die cut the Shimmering Hearts from glitter paper and also used it for the edges of my card.


Please leave a comment on this post for a chance to win the Grand Stick Frame and be sure to come back tomorrow for more amazing projects.

Happy Crafting!
