Diva Tic-Tac-Toe final day!!

Hey crafty friends - I'm part of the end of month team at Die Cut Divas where we're playing tic-tac-toe with products from our May sponsor, CAS-ual Fridays. Especially note Arlene's beautiful birthday card - I was the lucky recipient!! Here's my card:

Supplies: Paper - BoBunny; Paper Studio
Dies - CAS-ual Fridays Merry Christmas;
A Jillian Vance Design Stitched Dot Rectangle
Other - Crystal Stickles; wooden shape from Target;
clear enamel dots; Black Soot Distress Ink

Here's the grid we're using:

I used the top row because I wanted to emboss using a CF die. Since it was a Christmas die, picking the  row with red made total sense! To make it stand out even more, I carefully traced the embossing with Stickles. For my uneven edge, I simply tore the designer paper and sponged some Distress Ink on it. Added embellishments - done. I've been hording my package of the little wooden reindeer, bought years ago in the Target Hot Spot - only $3!! They don't seem to have as many fun crafty items they used to, darn it!

Hope to see your card in the gallery - you have until 9p Pacific Time on May 31st to upload at our linky HERE. Thanks to CAS-ual Fridays for a fun month and for the $20 prize; we'll award it on June 3rd by random draw from May entries.

Happy crafting & thanks for stopping!! Check back at Die Cut Divas tomorrow for another challenge with a new sponsor.

Fantastic Linda. Love the stickles on the embossing.

A wonderfully creative take. The hand drawn Stickles sentiment adds a terrific touch.

Betty said...

very creative to use the stickles on the sentiment (i wonder whether mine are all dried up??) anyway it certainly give your card great added interest.

I've never embossed word dies--love it! Great card with that pretty paper & sweet little deer! You're right about Target now--I've stopped even looking.
