The Best Day - Part One

Hello Friends!  I told you that I'd pop in every now and again with a fun creation!  Technically, I am on a self imposed blog break but I clearly couldn't let the start of school come without a creation or two for my fabulous children. 

My darling daughter started second grade yesterday and I wanted something simple, bright and fun to tuck into her lunchbox on day one.  I recently purchased the MFT Sentiments 6th Birthday Celebration Set
I mean, really, talk about awesome!  I used Bazzill cardstock and Basic Grey patterned papers from the Konnichiwa collection.  (swoon)

I used my Fishtail Flag STAX and my Hearts-a-Plenty Die-namics to complete my project.  To achieve my super glossy and bubbly heart, I cut the smallest heart out in both red cardstock and a scrap of thin cardboard.  I Xyroned the two together to give it some stability and then added a generous layer of Glossy Accents over top.  I let it dry overnight and adhered it to my card using hot glue to ensure that it wouldn't fall off. 

I anchored the corners of my sentiment panel and my outer panel with self-adhesive bling for an added touch of texture.

I was happy and my daughter was beaming when she came home as she had a fantastic first day of school.
I am one super proud Mom. 

Until the next time!

Crafty Hugs!
