Cheery Lynn Designs with a Japanese flair

Remember that Rod Stewart song, "Have I told you lately that I loved you?"

For some reason that song was running through my head as I was getting ready to write this post.
Have I told you lately how much I love Cheery Lynn Designs? Not just the metal(dies), but the people, the team, the whole kaboodle?
Keepers, all of them!
With the New June Release of dies, I wanted to do a special project to show off the dies I was using and to show Cheery Lynn how much I adore working with their designs.
Today my main focus is on the new die called:
Other dies I used are:
Here is my little creation:)

Can you tell this is created like a shaker card? It is a dimensional framed front, 3-D, I mean.


I cut out a rectangle in the card from, using one of the Scalloped Rectangle Stackers and then use the Japanese Frame to frame the cut-out.


I added dimensional foam along the inside of the frame and attached a false back.


Maybe if you see the inside card front, you can get a better idea of what I am talking about.


Here is a close up of the inside of the card. I framed the sentiment rectangle with the inside leftovers from the JAPANESE FRAME.


The inside sentiment is cut out with the OPTIMISTIC FONT. Konnichiwa means HELLO in Japanese.

Now be sure and come back for a visit over the next week or so. All of us are going to continue to showcase these fabulous new dies.
Have a great weekend and hope you get some crafty time to yourself!
This has been Jeannie with THE POLKA CABANA with today's post.
