I have two alternative ideas for you!  Check them out below...

How'd She DO That Quick & Cute Hooray Card:

  • Trim out a 2-1/2" x 5-1/4" piece from a printed envelope (from kit).  Adhere to 4" x 5-1/4" white panel, and then to 4-1/4" x 11" folded Blackberry Bliss card base.
  • Cut a Coral Calypso heart using the Heart Punch Pack. 
  • The sentiment (from kit) is stamped with Coral Calypso ink .  It's cut with the coming soon Double Oval Punch (154242).  The Blackberry Bliss scallop oval is cut with the same punch.  I think this is gonna be a new favorite of mine!
  • Finish off with the cute cupcake die cut (from kit) and Elegant Faceted Gems

How'd She DO That Get Well Beary Card:

  • Trim out 2-3/4" x 4" pieces from the striped card base (from kit).  Both the front and back.  Adhere them to 4-1/4" x 11" folded Crumb Cake card base.
  • Arrange the bears and flower die cuts and adhere to card.
  • Stamp sentiment with Coral Calypso ink on small label die cut and adhere with dimensionals.
  • Tie a knot with white twine (from the Snail Mail Combo Pack (154579) - coming soon) - adhere with glue dot.  Finish off with a couple Elegant Faceted Gems on the flower centers.

Cute cards, right?!
