DCWV March Stackaholic Challenge Card AND Freebies!

Hello crafty friends,
Hope you are having a great day and wrapping up your week. Today I am sharing a card I made for the DCWV Die Cuts With A View Monthly Stackaholic Challenge. Each month they have a challenge and typically feature a card and layout sketch. I shared my layout project for this month: HERE. Today I am sharing my card challenge plus I am sharing a couple of freebies! So let’s get started.

Here’s a look at my card. I used a Pazzles Craft Room FREEBIE (SEE LINK BELOW)from the Miss Kate’s Cuttables collection. I took the scallop base, welded two together to create the card base. Cut that out of some Kraft paper from Hobby Lobby The Paper Studio. I followed the sketch provided by the challenge. I used some pretty patterned papers from the DCWV Die Cuts With A View Butterfly Garden Stack.

Next, I made a Print N’ Cut file with the sentiment and flower. It was my first attempt at a print n’ cut file and I think it came out pretty good. I added a couple of tiny brads on each end of the sentiment strip. I added a cute button with some twine to the center of the flower. I inked the edges of all my paper layers and added some pop dots to the different layers to give them a nice staggered look with some depth. Finally I added some pearl embellishments to the outer edge.
