Cottage Cutz Flowers Die New Release Slimline Hello Card Idea

Happy TuesDIE crafty Friends!
Today I am sharing a pretty slimline card I created with the amazing new 
Okay, I don't say this too often, but this release is a MUST HAVE for your creative collection! Sooooo many fantastic dies in this new release! Here is my project for today!
I created this simple yet pretty card featuring the Flower 1 die from the new release! It is such a great sized die and very, very easy to put together.


Here's a closer look at the two flowers. I cut them both out in plain white cardstock. I then colored them in with my markers. 

For the base of the card, I started with a piece of white cardstock measuring 7x8.5". I scored and folded it to make it a side folding card base measuring 3.5 x 8.5". I then cut a piece of pink cardstock for a mat. I cut that 1/8" inch smaller than the base. I then cut out the largest scallop stitched slimline die from that set and then two of the rectangle stitched slimline dies from that set all in white cardstock. I then cut two mats for the larger two bases. One in the patterned red paper and then in the same pink patterned paper. For the smallest stitched rectangle, I left it plain. I then layered all of them together adding foam tape under the scallop stitched mat and the second stitched rectangle mat to give them just a little lift. I then put the pretty flowers on the card and added some sequins. 

Here's a closer look at the bottom portion of my card. 
To finish off my card, I cut out the smallest double stitched oval die from that basic set and the word hello from the hello spring bunny cottage die from last spring's release. I cut both of them out in white cardstock and then used the same color red marker to color in my hello so that it would match my flower.

The card came together quickly and can be reproduced easily! Here is a look at the fabulous collection!

Hot Cocoa Box

Hello dear crafty friends!
Today I am sharing a fun Hot cocoa box I made. I decorated it with some of the fun dies from the Cottage Cutz Christmas release. I love that you can invest in these seasonal dies, but use them well past their intended season. It is great to get a lot of mileage out of them!
Here's a look at my fun box. I used white cardstock for the base of the box. I then used some blue cardstock for the mats. From there I did all the fun stuff of decorating my box.

Slimline Birthday Puppies

Happy Tuesday Sweet crafty Friends!

Today I am sharing a fun and cheerful slimline birthday card I created for Cottage Cutz. Here's a look at my finished project. I used the sweet little Christmas Puppies Dies from this year's Christmas release.
My card is pretty straightforward. It is a side folding slimline card. I started with a white card base. I cut a piece of paper to 8 x 9. I folded it in half at the 4" mark along the 8" length. I then cut a piece of red cardstock paper at 3.75 x 7.75. After I added that to my card base, I cut out the slimline circle windows base out. I then cut out a piece of the cute dotted patterned paper from doodlebug. I used some foam tape to give the slimline circle window base some lift. I then went to work cutting out the cute little puppies from some plain white cardstock. I then colored them with my markers.
