Cut It Out

This card will be entered into the Make It Monday Challenge, DIY Cover Plates, over at Papertrey Ink.  Kind of an interesting challenge, to use your dies to make a cut out design on the front of your card, a cover plate.  I decided to use the large flower die from the Lovely Layers set as well as the corresponding stamp.  It's a fun technique and one I will try with all of my other dies too.

I suppose I could call this a CAS card too.  Ha!  I cut out 2 large flower dies, saving the cut out pieces to stamp in More Mustard and Elegant Eggplant.  I then adhered the flowers on the inside to peek through the cut openings.  Stamping the sentiment and a fern onto white card stock I cut them out using Spellbinders Classic Ovals and layered it onto green card stock.  Very clean, very simple.

Thanks for taking a peek today!



  1. Fabulous CAS card I think! Great going ya did well!

  2. Great CAS card my dear! Love your colors and the design created by your cut outs. Great take on the challenge. Oh, and I love how you have stamped that little whisp of green on your greeting oval. That's a great idea - I must remember. You are ALWAYS inspiring me!

  3. Definitely CAS! Love the simplicity of it, and that great technique. I'm really going to have to try it.

  4. You did good my friend. I love it!! Now are you starting to believe how well you do CAS?? I have to try that technique someday
