Tic Tac Toe Challenge #075

Hello friends.  I'm happy to report that Hurricane Isaias was downgraded to a tropical storm overnight and turned out to be just a small blip on our radar.  Florida is now back down to only one State of Emergency. *shameful eyeroll*

Today I'm sharing another card I created yesterday during my productive pre-hurricane crafting session.  This card was inspired by this week's board over at the TicTacToe challege blog. 

For whatever reason I just wasn't in the mood for water, pool or sun (probably due to our weather) so I went for the middle row of blue, square and flower.

I started by die cutting the square of flowers from a both a blue card stock panel as well as a scrap piece of white card stock.  Fortunately for me, this die has all sixteen flowers embedded in it so there was no measuring involved.  I only needed the negative space for this design so I set the blue flowers aside for another project.  I created a stitched border panel in silver and adhered the smaller blue panel to its center.  I inlaid the white flowers back into the two middle rows but chose to pop up the top and bottom rows of flowers with foam dots to create some dimension.  I used a two piece sentiment die to create a stacked sentiment in blue and silver.  For the finishing touches I added silver gems to the centers of the popped up flowers.  Here's a closer look at the details.

HAI- Silver Crystal gems

Stay safe and healthy my friends!  

Thank you for visiting my little crevice of the crafty blogosphere.  Your time, comments and friendship are much appreciated.  

Happy Crafting!



  1. This is one awesome card! I like how you didn't let *square* define the size of your card but instead just used it as another design element. Beautiful with the navy, too!

  2. Just darling, Julie ... reminds of Marimekko fabric! Do you remember that company? LOve the white on navy!
