I would like to thank Chrissie and Mandi for showCASing my yellow card from week 66's challenge...I am truly honored and humbled in the midst of so much talent...you ladies have made my week...congratulations to all the other showCASees...Less is More rocks!!! Time and creativity have truly escaped me the last week...but when I saw the challenge this morning at Less is More with the theme of BABY or CHILD...I had an idea! I thought of the Papertrey Ink animal dies and thought I would make a card with the giraffe...only thing is THEY ARE ALL ATTACHED!! I don't know exactly why that seems to be the trend in dies(probably cost), but I am not a fan of all the images in a set of dies being attached to one another....well...here's what I made, then I'll show you what I did:)!!
I made a baby boy and girl card using papertrey ink dotted and graphed paper the sentiment from a Papertrey baby set Hanging Out. I was able to use my big all purpose shears on this die and cut it apart from the others(sometimes the dies are too close together, but this one worked:)!!) I will warn you if you attempt this...it is NOT easy...but cut little by little, being patient and not worrying about bending the metal slightly(it bends back...just have to be careful) it's not too bad and doesn't take too long.
Now that I have the giraffe cut off...the others will be pretty easy to get apart!!
Thanks for visiting me today!!
