Every since I heard about this blog hop and the theme I was so excited to make this card. Anyone that really knows me knows that purple is by far my favorite color. And with the theme of the blog hop being use something you haven't used in a while (6 months or so), I kept thinking about the "Dazzles" by Hot Off The Press (HOTP) that I bought at and haven't got to use them. I got really excited and immediately started thinking of a design I could use on the card. It is quite simple but also elegant at the same time. Heck, you wouldn't really know that those are Dazzle stickers on the front LOL :-). With that being said I will tell you a little bit about how the card was made. It is a white card blank with the fold on top cut to 5" x 5" with purple card stock on top also the same size. Then I used Gypsy Jewel Paper from HOTP in blue stripe and purple ombre. I matted them together with a small border. Then I traced and cut the scalloped rectangle label from a sheet of die-cuts I had onto purple card stock with a light blue card stock behind it. I used 3D foam tape to pop it up off the card. Then from a sheet of white Dazzles i used two swirls facing each other. and a smaller swirl under that lines up even with the top swirls. I then used a dazzle border across the bottom. And to finish it off I rounded the bottom corners with a corner punch. The majority of the product used is by Hot Off The Press. The card stock is just basic from my stash. The Dazzles are the item that I have not used in a while and was very excited to use. I didn't include a sentiment on the front because it has so many possibilities. A birthday card, An anniversary card, and so on.. You get the picture. Unfortunately the picture never really does the card the justice it deserves. Here is another view of the card standing up.

I hope you enjoy the card and if you have any questions or would like a more detailed tutorial let me know and I will be happy to make one or answer any questions.
