Sunshine Wishes Card for GDP045

I’m very excited about this week’s GDP Challenge.  It seems like forever since I’ve played along.  And this week is a really special one, as the Design Team are giving players a chance to be a guest designer for their next colour challenge.  Woot! Woot!

I’ve been wanting to do a camouflaged die cut card since I saw a video by Laura Bassen using this technique, so this was the perfect opportunity.  Using the brand new Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, I chose the congrats sentiment and the loosey-goosey flower.  Here’s what I came up with:


Sunshine Wishes Congrats Card-1

The banner sentiment is from Crazy About You stamp set, and I’ve just added some of the new Metallic Enamel Shapes to finish it off.

Here’s a close-up of the sentiment.  I love this technique – it’s a clever way to add interest without cluttering the card.


Sunshine Wishes Congrats Card-2

Just a note about the new Big Shot Platform with Thin Die Adapter.  If you haven’t tried this yet, you have to!  The difference it makes to die-cutting is enormous.  It just cuts like butter!  I’ve included it in the supply list below.  Thanks for stopping by today.

If you live in Australia and you are looking for a demonstrator to purchase from or join up with I would love to look after you.
