I’m always looking on Pinterest for ideas using Stampin’ Up products and Mary Fish never disappoints! I love the simple color combination of black and white with Rose Red and, well, don’t get me started on polka dots!! Mary’s ombre technique of just dabbing on a little of the coordinating color on the bottom of the “Celebrate” is a simple and easy way to add wow to any card. The Celebrate You thinlit dies are free with a $100.00 purchase until March 31st. The center of the Rose Red was cut out by using the Barn Door thinlit set another of my favorites. You’ll be surprised by how few products you need to make this adorable card and since the supplies are all so versatile the possibilities are endless.
