I am such a big fan of Cathy Zielske and I just love her designs. I think I might have them all! So I was excited to see that this week's challenge was going to feature CZ Designs. So of course I couldn't just make one card!
This first card features one of my favorite CZ Design sentiment dies Let's Celebrate. I made the card using smooth white cardstock cut to be the size of an A2 card base. I wanted to make a birthday card that was bright and cheerful and perfect for a summer birthday! I created a plaid background in my favorite distress colors using post-it tape. I trimmed it down to leave a white border and die cut a scalloped window from the middle. I then die cut the Soft Serve Cone 3 times out of scraps of colored cardstock and adhered them together with liquid glue.
I then die cut the CZ Designs Let's Celebrate sentiment twice. Once from white cardstock and once from craft cardstock.  I offset the dies and adhered them together to look like a shadow. The sparkle on the plaid background is using red line double sided tape and clear glitter to add a bit of sparkle.
The next card I made came from not wanted to toss the center of the scalloped piece of I cut from the plaid paper I made for the first card. So I die cut some gifts and again used the colors I choose for the plaid background. For this card I chose the Happy Birthday from CZ Designs. I ink blended that using distress ink.
I used a rectangle stitched die to mat the A2 size card base to leave a bit of a border. I took the ink blended Happy Birthday sentiment and adhered it to a die cut from fun foam for a bit of dimension. I also used some foam squares to pop up the gifts that I added to the scalloped circle.
