Hello, and thanks for stopping by. We are being pelted with snow as we speak. Much and all as my little ladies would love it to stick, it is just creating a big slushy mess!! Hope you are having a good Monday morning :)
This week over at Through the Purple Haze Challenges, the theme is Die cuts and Digi images. We are very kindly sponsored by :
Offering two images to the winner
Offering $20 coupon
1 Tattered Lace Die.
This week I made two cards, as we were very kindly provided with such beautiful supplies.
This is my 'gate-fold' card. It is a double fold, and I used the beautiful Oriental Panda die.
I layered the die cut with both the green paper and black. Once I layered the black on, the image immediately popped out at me, and it changed the whole look of it. I am impressed at how well the dies cut, and how detailed they are.
I covered both sides of the gate fold with some oriental paper, round cornered the edges and then die cut out an opening, to create an aperture.
I used the die to also create extra bamboo shoots, to give a bit of depth.
For the inside, I cut out some white board slightly smaller, round cornered and inked the edges with some distress ink.
Aaaawwwww...... would you look at that cute Panda!
My second card this week, I worked with the beautiful pre-coloured Faye on Toadstool from Pink Gem Designs.
This card followed the theme to a T with all the die cuts!! Went a little crazy, there are 11 die cuts on the card!! Can you find them all?!
With some blue paper I tore off a strip and embossed it.
I cut Faye's hair out, and then die cut the rest of the circle. Think she really pops out!!
I die cut the doily behind her, and all the banners.
Hope you liked my cards. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful Monday.
I hope to enter these cards into some challenges.
