Happy Little Stampers September Challenge...

Hi! I am here with my inspiration for the September challenge at the Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies challenge. If you love playing with your dies, this is the challenge for you. 

I created an easel card as inspiration. I also plan on using this card as a sample for a demo on die-cutting that I am doing at a local craft store.

I started with some black cardstock that I cut with the Labels and Frames Stitched die by Sizzix. You need three identical pieces for an easel card - one top piece and two pieces cut on a fold. To assemble the card, fold one of the pieces in half and adhere the top piece over it. Here is the opened card.

I also cut out a bunch of wreaths from red, orange, dark orange, yellow and pink colored papers. I layered the wreath die cuts and adhered them with glue. The sentiment is from the Say It With Florals set by Pinkfresh Studio. I stamped and heat embossed it with the Gold Tinsel embossing powder by Ranger. Here is a closer look at the card.

To finish, I cut a smaller piece out of the orange card and adhered it to the base. I also added two half pearls to keep the easel propped up when open. Since I didn't have them in gold, I simply used my gold Sharpie marker to colour them.

Here is another look at the completed card.

Hope you find my card inspiring and pull out your dies to play. You can check out the Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies challenge blog for more inspiration and also link your creations. Looking forward to seeing your cards in our gallery.
