Avery Elle July Blog Hop


Last month Avery Elle went to a bimonthly release, but that doesn't mean we can't hop this month!  Today I'm hopping with the set Oh Happy Day!  As I'm sure you've noticed, I cannot put this set down.  The font is just so unique and seems to go with practically any style.  So I paired the Oh Happy Day sentiment with an older Avery Elle set, Blooming Banner.  


To make this design, I stamped the largest image from the Blooming Banner set 4 times on to a piece of scrap white card stock.  Then I used a Rounded Diamond die to cut just the middle of the design.  I colored the design with Copics and arranged them together on the card front with a bit of foam tape.  I love how it came out modern and folk arty all at the same time!  


That's my bit for today!  I hope you check out what the other gals have in store today!  Here's the blog line up if you've just started the hop...
