I saw a challenge on a new site and knew I wanted to do something to play along. For this particular challenge, one of the design elements has to be die cut, whether with an e-cutter or manual device. I chose to use my Big Shot, primarily because I don't own an e-cutter but also because I love using my Big Shot.
For my base cardstock, I used Naturals White followed by a layer of Hello Honey and then a layer of Early Espresso. The die cut piece would be cut from Hello Honey with my Hexagon Hive thinlit.
I decided to use only one row from the Hexagon Hive die-cut. I chose a row of five cells, two of which were not open. In the open cells, I planned to place images that spoke to me of summer and fun. What could be more fun than flip-flops, ice-cream, and the sun itself? I stamped each of the images onto Whisper White using my Memento ink and then coloured them using my Blendabilities. I attached each into an empty cell with Dimensionals.
To finish the card I heat embossed "sweet moments" with White embossing powder. I felt the card still needed a little something and so decided to stamp a paper airplane on Whisper White and then cut that out carefully. I attached that using Dimensionals and then drew "flight lines" with my white Signo pen.
For more cards using die-cuts, check out The Cutting Edge Challenge.
I also decided to join the "anything goes" challenge at The Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.
And then I noticed that there was another "anything goes" challenge and joined it as well at the Sister Act Card Challenge.
