My Time To Craft 'Die Cuts Only' Challenge

Hello again it is lovely to be here on this lovely sunny day, it really doesn't feel like October does it?

So this week at My Time To Craft we are using 'Die Cuts Only', that means no image but of course you can use sentiments. I ended up making two cards, the first one I like but there was just something about that I didn't. I am not sure if it is because it would not lay flat and so I couldn't get a decent photograph but hey ho that is on my maybe pile lol. This was a whole card kit from the Silhouette Store designed by Daniela Angelova and went together so easily, these would be perfect for mass producing. The brown card stock has a lovely gold shimmer to it and it is a really good weight for using as a card base.

Card Stock - Limetree Crafts

The second card was one I saw in the Silhouette Store and immediately thought I could have fun with that, it was designed by Alaa K. I cut is out of white card stock and then went to town with broken china distress ink. The trunk was just cut from a scrap of red card and a little bow on the top finished it off. Another card that would be quick to make in the masses and just think of the fun you could have colouring the sections in lots of colours.

WOW, WOW, WOW.... both cards are beautiful. I really love the first one. Looks like a Hallmark card. You are a pro with the snow. I purchased some flower soft a long time ago. I tried using it and mine did not look like yours. You need to do a how to video.
Have a creative day.
Hugs Nana
