To create the "Happy" die cut, I adhered 5 strips of 1 1/8" cardstock to a piece of white scrap paper, making sure the edges lined up perfectly. I positioned the Happy die over the strips and used a sticky note to temporarily stick the die to the paper. Because the cardstock was extra thick, I ran it through my die cut machine 3 or 4 times to ensure a clean cut. I popped out the die cut and adhered it to my card using foam adhesive.
The aqua and pink stars are die cut from Sea and Raspberry shimmer paper, also from Papertrey Ink.
