Welcome to the August 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re going to “Cut It Out”. Participants will feature projects with “cuts” from punches, dies, Framelits, Edgelits, or Thinlits.
Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.
I made this card to use as a Sympathy card for my kid’s favorite swim coach, who recently lost her Mom. I used 3-3/4″ x 1″ strips of each of the new In Colors and adhered them to a piece of 5″ x 3-3/4″ white card stock. I ran that through the Big Shot with the Fluttering embossing folder. With Stampin’ Dimensionals, the butterfly layer is attached to a Flirty Flamingo 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ card. The Isaiah verse is from the Rose Wonder stamp set. Everything looks better when it’s cut out with the Stitched Shape Framelits. If you own a Big Shot you will want to get them! The butterfly is from the Bold Butterfly Framelits.
Here’s a birthday version of the card. The little butterflies are cut from the Build A Bike Framelits.
Here’s a similar card flipped the other way. The Happy Anniversary is from a retired set, All-Year Cheer III from back in 2002. (I’m dating myself.) The colors are Powder Pink, Sweet Sugarplum, Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Blackberry Bliss.( All are current except Blackerry Bliss.)
The Big Shot is a wonderful tool that allows you to make awesome “cuts” on your cards.
