This is my first post as a design team member for Addicted to CAS! The inspiraton word is WORLD. So much fun!
Our sponsor for this challenge is Create A Smile and the price is one stamp set to the winner! Create A Smile has really fun and cute images, this is a challenge that I would have liked to win myseft!
I created a Valentine card using an old map. I have seen gorgeous design pattern of maps but unfortunately I don’t have any, so you find a way in need, right? 🙂
I made a quick little video that shares some die cutting tips when you use alphabet dies and want them in a straight line, take a look if you would like to see the process of making of this card.
Thanks for stopping by and take care!

Hi Joanna, thanks for calling by and your sweet comment. The wave in front of the boat was liquid pearls and a little diamond dust sprinkled whilst still wet…it ended up looking like water……not brains or talent….I was just playing about….lol
