I made this card from a card sketch from Catherine Pooler
I used a pre-made card base made of kraft paper, white,
Polka dot and black card stock. I used my spellbinders Labels Twenty Three dies
to cut out the focal pieces.
This is the inside of the card. I also used the same spellbinders dies on the inside

I saw this card in the current edition of Paper Crafts Magazine on page 23.
The papers used for the card
Card base is from Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Red Hot card stock.
The background papers are from My Mind’s Eye “Everyday Flair” 6x6 designer paper- pack.
I used white card stock for the mat and focal image. I stamped the thinking of you using a stamp from the Close To My Heart “Casual Expressions Occasions” stamp set.
First I stamped thinking of you using the Blush ink pad then I used the Cranberry ink pad to stamp the focal image both ink pads are from CTMH. The buttons are from morebuttons.com purchased at Ross and the red gem glitter flowers are from Hobby Lobby, Paper Studio, Spare Parts.
I hope you like it.

I got the idea to make this card after seeing a video by dostamping with Dawn. The papers used are the Close To My Heart "For always" paper pack and some black and white card stock. The stamp used is the June stamp of the month "A Flowering Bunch" also from Close To My Heart.
To make the starbursts (sunbursts) you will cut 4 pieces of papers at 1 ½” x 4”
Cut those 4 pieces from the upper right corner to the lower left corner. This will give you a triangle shape.
Glue theses shapes to a 5” x 2 ¾” piece of card stock (mark your center at 2 ½). Starting from the center marking you will glue 1 triangle strip and work your way out (alternating papers/patterns). Then starting from the center on the opposite side you will glue a triangle and work your way out (alternating papers/patterns). Be sure and let your shapes hang off the 5x2 3/4 piece of paper. You will cut away the overhang once all pieces have been glued down. Once this is complete; glue the 5” x 2 ¾” piece of paper to a 5” x 3 ¾” piece of card stock then glue it all down to your card base. You can find a copy of Dawn’s video at http://www.dostampingwithdawn.
Have fun. I did!
