Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge

Hellooo Out There!  Today I'm playing along with the Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge of using more than one die cut/punch challenge.

This is a top folding A2 card and to create it I began by cutting a smaller panel with a stitched rectangle die and then taking that panel and cutting a smaller oval stitched panel.  I cut some foam at the same time in order to pop it up a bit from the background.  Next I chose some bright colors for this child's birthday card in a pigment ink and cut the balloons from a Simon Says balloon die...I cut the balloons in white and then again in all of the colors because I wasn't sure how I was going to put them together.  Once they were cut, I did an inline piecing in the center and then picked two others (as long as I had some extra) to make some stray balloons. I stamped and die cut the letters to form the name, and adhered them with glue dots.  Lastly, I stamped the birthday sentiment at the top and Voila!  This was a bit time consuming, but I loved the look and will undoubtedly do it again!

Materials Used:
  • Fun foam cut to size
  • Regular white cardstock
  • Lawn Fawn Owen's Alphabet Stamp Set and Dies
  • Simon Says Balloon Bouquet Dies
  • My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangles and Inside/Outside Stitched Ovals
  • My Favorite Things Ewe Are the Best for the sentiment at top


  1. I love these pretty die cut balloons inside the stitched oval Mary and great that you have die cut and stamped the name in the same range of colours and added the two extra balloons too. A beautiful card. x

  2. Gorgeous card - love the layout of your design.
    Thanks for joining us at Simon says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
