LIM - Cut It Out

Hi all, sorry I haven't been around the last week. I have had a bug that has completely wiped me out, I am over the worst but still not back to 'normal'. Anyway, I really wanted to enter this week's Less Is More challenge of Cut It Out so here I am with a quick card inspired by Nichole Heady. I have taken a white card blank and cut a circle in the middle with a Nestabilities die and added DB Pistacchio CS to the back of the inside of the card. I have then cut a PTI Wonderful Word Die from DB Swimming Pool CS and adhered the 'h' and the 'y' to the front of the card. I have stamped the 'birthday' sentiment from the PTI Birthday Bash Sentiments Set on to vellum and adhered to the front of the card. Martha Stewart Monarch and 3 in 1 butterflies punched from DB Dragonfly and Pistacchio CS added to the front and finished off with rhinestones.




STAMPS: Papertrey Ink. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black. CS: Craftwork Cards, Doodlebug Designs. TOOLS: Nestabilities, Papertrey Ink Dies, Martha Stewart Punches. EMBELLISHMENTS: Papermania Adhesive Rhinestones.

Thanks for visiting today, I hope you are all well.
I will be back tomorrow with a DTDF DT card.
