I used the FIRECRACKER cutie, today, along with lots of the fabulous new Die-namics.
I used the SQUARE STAX 1 & 2 DIE-NAMICS to cut out my à la mode image and then matted it with another square in Enchanted Evening cs. She's colored with copics and I pieced up the firecracker with some coordinating Authentique papers and added a touch of stickles to the spark. I cut the "thank-you....I had a Blast" sentiment apart and used part of it on my card front.
I love the shape of the new DESIGNER LABEL 2 STAX DIE-NAMICS. Those little rounded tops are a perfect place to tuck in a button, so I wanted to use them as an accent behind my main image. BUT....it wasn't quite long enough for the size square I used. BUT this was an easy problem to fix, I used a scrap of the red paper to just die cut only the tops of each of the ends of the die. You can also die-cut a full panel and then just trim in in half, sliding up each top until you have as much of the rounded top showing as you'd like.
I also added some of the new STAR STAX DIE-NAMCIS. LOVE the size of these....I've wanted a giant star for a long time, so I was sooo happy when these arrived in my mailbox. You'll love them, too!
I added more of these great stars to the inside of my card. This was also the perfect place to add the thank-you sentiment. I also added a bit of the PINKING BORDER DIE-NAMICS.
