My Die Cutting World

Happy Friday.

So my world is filled with all things die cutting right now. (Oh, and babies and remodel dust and baseball games, etc. Ha.) Why? Because we have the A Cut Above die cutting class going on. (Yes – you can still join and be eligible for the prizes, discounts and lifetime class access.) We have been having lots of fun and sharing many great techniques!

While creating for the class, I decided to do a 5-minute card challenge using a die. Super quick. Super simple. Super perfect for a kind and thoughtful neighbor…

This card is super smooth. Why? Because I first die cut the flowers from the kraft paper and glued the negative space panel to the card. I then die cut the pink and green pieces and fit them in the “holes” on the kraft piece, making it smooth. There is something about this look in real life that is classy. And so very easy to do…

I could so see doing a set of notecards with different flower colors as a gift.

Oh – that gorgeous kraft paper is THIS from Neenah (who makes my favorite white cardstock) and is called Desert Storm. I love it. I am late to the game trying it but am happy I did.

That die is THIS gorgeous guy from Memory Box. They have the most gorgeous intricate dies. This type of card could be done with any die, but intricate ones really wow.

And the greeting? That is from THIS Hero Arts stamp sets – one of my all time faves.

Off to bed. Yes, it is 9:16pm on a Friday night and this extremely pregnant lady is going night-night. ūüôā Sleep well!
