Just Us Girls Challenge 179


Hi Everyone, it's been a little while since I've blogged but I've been around reading and visiting everyone else - just not had much to share if the truth be told!!

So today I took the time to sit and craft and made a RSVP card for my friend's wedding in April. 

I also used the opportunity to join in with the new challenge over at Just Us Girls which is to use a negative die cut.  

All the challenge details can be found HERE

So here is the card I created to join in with the challenge:

I used a 6x6 kraft card blank as my base and cut another square piece of kraft card slightly smaller than the base.  I used three spellbinders circles dies on this square piece to create the negative die cut technique.  I stamped the sentiment from Papermania in black versafine in the bottom right corner, then I used a black micron pen to add dots around each of the circle apertures and I drew straight lines around the edges.  I placed a piece of fabric textured flowery paper onto my card base and layered the cut card on top using foam pads.

Thanks for stopping by today - feel free to leave me a comment so I know you popped by!
