I broke down and made a square card for this because I wanted to use the fabulous new Die-namics Peek – a – Boo Squared die. I cut it out twice—once with patterned paper and once with some Whip Cream card stock, then layered them. Since I was going to pop it up on foam, I wanted it a little more sturdy than patterned paper alone. Then I cut another piece of Whip Cream card stock and trimmed it just a little smaller than the die cut. I lined them up and traced the circles with a pencil, then stamped the two words from Have Hope, and the ribbon heart from an older set, WTG Think Pink. I colored the ribbon heart with Copic markers, erased all my pencil marks, and then popped the die cut up on the stamped layer. I then cut two flags from this month’s Die-namics Accent It – Flags & Tags, one from patterned paper and layered the smaller, sentiment-stamped layer on it. This was also popped up on foam. Some stitching, some sponging, and a buttoned and twine tied seam binding bow finished it off. I’m also using Steel Gray card stock and a Whip Cream button from the MFT Boutique.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set:



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