Die Cut Card

So Day 5 of MFT Camp Create is to create a card with die cutting as the focus.

I had a great idea and was about 3/4 of the way through die cutting all of my pieces and realized I didn’t have dies to cut out either of the sets with cactus that I had planned to use. I generally fussy cut those. Bummer. So, wound up using a cactus die I have from Spellbinders that I only cut one of and then cut it into 2 pieces.

So I had some fun with an MFT Hexagon border die I have had for years. I trimmed off one side of it and that is what all of my “mountains” are. Had some fun using the Oh My Gostrich set. I did stamp the ostrich and the sentiment, but everything else was done with dies. My panel is a die cut, as well. Used some foam tape in places to give it lots of depth, which doesn’t show up so much in the picture. There is a bit of inking on the back panel to give me some open spaces to play with (sky and open space behind the ostrich).

This was a fun one to make, even if I couldn’t use all the cactus I had planned to use.

Thanks for spending some of your valuable time with me today!

  1. Such a nice card! Sorry your cactus die wasn’t in your stash, but the ones you used look great. Love that you used dies intended for something else and turned them into mountains. So fun.
