Today I'm bringing you a little set I made with the newest à la mode girl - Go for Gold! I'm really looking forward to the Olympics this year. I know I'll be spending a LOT of time nursing, so it will be nice to have something to watch while bubs and I are curled up in our jammies in front of the fire!
Here's the set I created...



I've filled a little gift box with some candies as a sweet TV munchie treat. I've used lots of our new STAX die-namics on this set.




I started with a large 5x5" card base. My base layout is a simple grid made with the new Square STAX, and I embellished with lots of Die-namics for interest. I've used some great MFT cardstock in Kraft, Sno Cone and Sweet Tooth.



I coloured my girl with Copics that matched the papers I was using. I cut her out with a white border, and popped her up on foam on a Jumbo Banner Day STAX layer.



To anchor my sentiment, I used the new Star STAX and tied on a button with some Cantaloupe Twine. The sentiment is stamped on a flag from the First Place Award Ribbon set. 




Inside my card I've repeated the patterned paper and re-imagined my sentiment from the front, using the Star STAX again. How adorable is that tiny star?!


I started with a die cut box for my little treat, adding details with Die-namics to make it special.


The clear plastic middle of the STAX die-namics make them perfect for cutting windows. I like to just stick the die on my project using a glue dot right in the middle of the die so you can see and control exactly where it will cut. Here I've used the Star STAX again to tie my box in with the card.
