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!
