I’ve been in love with Laura Bassen’s work for a long while now. Early last year she posted this card that I pinned immediately. I really love the way she layered the negative die-cuts. I didn’t want to just out-right copy the card, but it has taken me all this time to figure out how to CASE it!


I chose my colors so that I could send the card to a boy or a girl (we’ll just forget that I loaded it with bling thus, in my opinion, negating that goal).

Since my nieces and nephews are getting to the age where they are accomplishing much, I chose to go with a “congrats” theme so I’d have a good card on hand when needed.

The general layout of the card is from an upcoming challenge (this card just ended up a bit “more” than what is looked-for). Nonetheless, it is one of my favorites!

Thanks for taking a peek!
