Talking of cards, would you like to see another one?
|Card - Quickutz Exclusive die|
For anyone who's following this blog, I'd like to say hello there and thanks for taking the time to take a peek inside the box. Did you know that before I discovered the world of rubber & digital stamps & COPICS - I used to make most of my cards using die cuts. In fact I used to design Exclusive Quickutz dies (19 in all)
This particular design was released last Christmas and I regret to say is nolonger available but I wanted to do at least a couple of die cut cards this year for old times sake.
I cut all the pieces out in different coloured cardstock adding shading with chalk inks & a white gel pen. If you're wanting to try this technique I'd strongly advise having baby wipes on hand - you will get very inky fingers, but the final effect is well worth it. It will give your die cuts added depth and dimension & by mounting some pieces on foam pads as I've done here - they "pop" out at you!!!!
