Avery Elle April Release Highlight: Bonjour

***please scroll down for my CASE Study post***

Hi guys!  Today Heather and I have more April release projects to share!  Today, I'm working with the stamp set Bonjour and the coordinating dies!  Seriously, how cute are those macarons!  Total cute overload:)



So who wouldn't love a box of colorful macarons for their birthday?  (Okay, the real thing may be a little bit better, but this is just as fun;)  With the coordinating dies, this card was super, super easy and quick to do.  Don't the dies cut perfectly?  I absolutely love how Jamie has designed the dies with a narrower space around the stamped image.  Since the die is open in the middle, it's a cinch to center perfectly over the stamped image.  No more wonky die cuts, lol!  For the box, I used the border stamp (embossed in gold) to dress it up a bit.  The sentiment is also embossed in gold with a couple of the flourish stamps.  


Thanks so much for stopping in today!  Hop on over to Heather's blog today too! She's highlighting the set Link It Up!

Mahalo and Aloha,
