Countdown to Confetti: Go Together & Sweet Thing



Ready for Day Two of Reverse Confetti's release countdown? Today's featured sets are GO TOGETHER and SWEET THING, both part of the Key Words collection. Remember to visit the Reverse Confetti blog for a full list of Confetti Crew designers posting today.




The card above features GO TOGETHERLOTS of great sentiment possibilities with this set! I cut a heart puzzle on my Silhouette to go with a sweet and simple "we go together" sentiment. It's kind of funny, I can't help but think of how, when I was in middle school, the boys and girls would "go together." The kids don't still say that, do they? I'm guessing now it's "seeing each other"? With a 13-year-old now, I'm sure I'll find out sooner than I'd like!

The cardboard couple is holding a string of hearts that I die-cut with the new LOVE NOTE Confetti Cuts set. Along the bottom is a double layer of the SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts. Behind the word "together" is a stamped heart border from WHOLE LOTTA HEARTS.

Here's a closer look at the stamped sentiment:



My next little project features SWEET THING:


Super quick project here--a Target dollar spot pillow box embellished with clear sequins, red felt hearts and a pair of tags tied on with baker's twine. The word "sweet" is stamped in metallic silver.
