Family Fun Challenge #2 - Stand Up Helpers

Hi everyone.  My cousin, Candy, challenged my sister, Robin, and I to make a card using Elizabeth Crafts Stand Up Helpers.  Candy bought them for us a year ago and we hadn't used them until now.  To be honest, I have a lot of stuff in the studio and they got pushed aside with many other things.  The goal this year is to use things I already have and learn to love them.

I have a hair appointment on Saturday so I decided to use this image from Saturated Canary called Julie Stylist.  I am going to give it to my stylist, Becky.  I hope she likes it.  I was surprised at how easy the stand up helpers were to use.  Thanks Candy. 

Here is a close-up of the image:

Here is a side view showing how the stand up helper works:

I layered the thank you die cut 4 times for more dimension.  I am really loving that technique.  I can't wait to see what Robin and Candy come up with.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day.
