HB2U Card

It's my turn to share at project at My Craft Spot today so I've got this fun little card to show you.  It was meant to be a quick and easy card, but for some reason the welding feature was not working with my Gypsy.  Each time I cut the card base, I ended up with a very odd shape that did not match the design on my Gypsy.  I finally flipped the rectangle and everything worked out.  It was very odd!!


I created this card using the cartoon feature of Cuttin' Up to create my letters, welding the shadows to a round-edged rectangle shadow from George and Basic Shapes.  I used some fun paper from DCWV's Pets Stack for the top layer of the letters, which I then adhered to the card base.  For the inside of the card, I cut the rectangle without the shadow feature.  I doodled around the letters and the mat on the inside of the card too.


I finished things off with a sweet little tag cut using the base and shadow from My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags metal dies - and stamped a sentiment using a stamp from the corresponding Tiny Tags stamp set.  I then added a bit of cappuccino baker's twine - also from My Craft Spot.

Thanks so much for visiting!  Have a wonderful day!
