The challenge at Just Add Ink this week is to Just Add a Die Cut.
I have taken this challenge seriously and have used nothing BUT the Big Shot on this card.
I thought I would make another Christmas card for my stash (actually it’s a very small stash at the moment but you’ve got to start somewhere!) :)
I decided to use the Island Floral die to make some Christmas tree lights. After cutting them out of real red card, I used crystal effects on them to make them “glass-like”. They are very shiny and a bit hard to photograph well. I then cut 3 more using glossy white and cut them just for the top bit of the light. I also used some black wire (that I had bought for some crafty something years ago and had never used) to string the lights together.
Then I used my new Tasteful Trim die (you guessed it another birthday present :) I cut 2 scalloped pieces from the subtles dsp stack to represent the Christmas tree the lights are hanging from.
Then I used my Timeless type junior alphabet and cut the word “Joy” from glossy white card.
Stamps : none
Card : olive, white, red, glossy white, subtles dsp stack
Ink : real red (sponged on edge of lights)
Other : big shot, polka dot ef, island floral, tasteful trim, timeless type alpha, crystal effects, black wire
Please take a look at what the rest of the JAI team have created this week and take up the challenge to use a die cut on a card yourself.
