Winnie & Walter Premier Day 4 (My Favorite!)

 Hi Folks! Winnie & Walter's Wish Big with Evelin T Designs set is my absolute FAVORITE set of the new release! I love, love, love it. There are so many wonderful birthday sentiments for inside your cards (always a neglected space, I feel), tiny secondary sentiments to add places, cute flags and accessories, tiny numbers, a banner, and one giant, delicious cupcake. Really, what more could you ask for in a birthday set?!

 Wish Big is my favorite set, and this is probably my favorite card of the release. That cupcake, along with the coordinating cutaways, is the perfect size to carry a card by itself. And then you have all the fun accessories to trick it out ... a cherry and the adorable flag with the cute split sentiment are used here, but I also could have chosen strawberries, or hearts on a stick, and instead of the sentiment I could have stamped the age of the birthday recipient. So many choices will lead to so much use over the years. 

And then can we talk about the EAT. CAKE. ? Love those instructions!! Well, yes, fine, only if you insist. Hahaha! These cutaways are from the previously shown Birthday Tiles set. Having the words already laid out for you makes it so easy to get the spacing right. Just use the negative die cut piece and adhere the letters in the spaces. 

After cutting all the accessories, I was left with these three cute strawberries and I knew I had to make a card with them instead of setting them aside for "later". Good thing, because I really like how this one turned out too.

I layered a "happy" cutaway on top of a bold "happy" stamp, also shown earlier this week, and threaded the "birthday" through the "y" loop to tie it all together. Not wanting to waste the extra flag that was cut out, I added a tiny sentiment and stuck it behind the "happy." I love having a secondary sentiment to add on the bottom of the card. I think it balances the card out from a design perspective, and it also adds more well for the recipient. Then I sewed the two panels on to the base of the card. Somehow, thread and strawberries always seem to go well together!

Super love this stamp set, and hopefully you do too because I'll be using it quite often in the future!
