*one set per customer, while supplies last, no rain checks


Alrighty then, on to my card. First of all I chose my papers so I could paper piece my little PI’s dress. Then I stamped her on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 130lb paper and colored her with Copic markers and paper pieced her dress. To add dimension. I stamped the image again and this time only colored her arms and camera, and paper pieced her sleeves. Then I adhered that on the original image and popped the whole thing up on foam. I hope you can see the added layer in this picture:


For the card base, after I adhered my patterned paper and did some stitching, I used my Die-namics Behind the Camera die only as a base for the image. I stamped the sentiment on a new Die-namics Sentiment Strips die and popped that up, as well. Some twine, a button, and some bling finished it off.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set, stamped on another
Die-namics Behind the Camera die only die cut. MFT card stock used on this card: Red Hot, Whip Cream, Kraft, Hot Fudge. Button is from Buttons Galore and More.


Here are the
Die-namics dies I used on this card:
