Hello friends!  I have a card to share today using the colors from the Color Throwdown.  

For my card,  I started with select white cardstock, lovely lady cardstock, aqua mist cardstock, and Tim Holtz Metallic kraft cardstock.  I used CZ Designs Grad Hat wafer dies to die cut the argyle shape.  This die is a grad hat, but I am showing you how to use a piece of a die ensemble to create different looks.  

I layered Arteza foam tape behind the pattern pieces.  Then, I die cut several of the CZ Design Congrats wafer die  in select white cardstock and used Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to glue together.  I glued the word across the middle of the argyle pattern.  Next, I die cut the layered panels using Waffle Flower A2 dies and Waffle Flower Additional A2 Layer dies.  

I used Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive for the gold background panel and Arteza foam tape for the white panel.  I glued all to a top folding  select white cardstock  base.  For the embellishments, I used My Favorite Things Blueprints 25 for the tiny star dies.  


  1. Betty, this is genius to use the grad hat to form an argyle border! Love this awesome CAS design! So glad you joined us at CTD this week!

  2. How clever to use the grad hat that way!! Love how you stretched your dies!! FABULOUS card design.

  3. Hi Betty, this card really popped out at me with its clean simplicity and bold sentiment. I really like this. It's a winner in my book!

  4. Cool use of the die! Sweet card! So happy you joined us at CTD!


Thanks so much!
