I made a set of 4 cards using the new Blueprints 11 and the very helpful Blueprints 11 idea sheet.



I started with a Primitive White Card Stock base and then cut out the background layer with the large rectangle in the set.  I used the wavy banner die to cut out the Sno Cone Card Stock layer and then ran the layer through my die cut machine again to cut out BE HAPPY and the 2 rows of circles. 


 I added lots of background stamping with the dots from Large Scale Backgrounds.



After stamping the background, I cut out the smile die from the Primitive White Card Stock and then cut the smile out again in Black Licorice and then inset it for a nice, bold sentiment.


Here's a look at my next card in the set.



I added the banner in Electric Red Card Stock and then added the little star on the top.


And my last card adds a fun sentiment that overlaps the different layers.



I used some Black Licorice Card Stock to accent the circle border and then popped up the banner over the top.


Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for a complete list of designers playing along in today's Teaser AND find out how you can win some MFT goodies!
