CFS Reveal - Stalk Up

Hi folks! We have a die-nomite release for CAS-ual Fridays this month! Just wait until you see all the dies, and how they coordinate with existing stamp sets. Today's set of dies coordinates with the graphically floral Beanstalks stamp set. This card is similar to another I made when Beanstalks first came out. I liked that stamped version, but this die cut version here was SO much easier to make. The sentiment is from WTF. I challenged myself to use something other than white or a metallic embossing powder for the sentiment, and I'm happy with how powder blue turned out.

The other die in this set is long and straight ... perfect for manipulating : ) Although it looked pretty neat in paper, I ended up using felt to make this laurel wreath since it bends without creases. The dainty curly-ques at the ends are so charming!

The sentiment is from Casual Comfort, a set with sentiments that I've been using a lot recently.
We'll have two more die sets to share with you over the next two days. For this set, however, more inspiration waits for you with the rest of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Design Team:
