After doing an almost black card for this weeks Play Date Cafe challenge I thought I'd do an almost white one too - and how could I not incorporate some twine as this weeks winner receives a gorgeous package of twine from The Twinery! As this layout also features die-cuts I've linked it to this weeks Less is More Diecut & Punches Challenge and ribbons for this weeks CAS-ual Friday Tie One On Ribbon Challenge - hopefully it's CAS enough!
Die-cutting some My Favourite Things flat-bottomed clouds I discovered the only problem with flat-bottomed clouds is that they are flat bottomed lol! When using them for negative die-cuts, you need to take extra care keeping them straight when cutting them out.
I dry embossed one of the smaller clouds to pop-dot in front and also the cardstock that sits underneath the negative die-cuts using Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl embossing folder. Kite shape is cut from a scrap in my stash, and the We R Memory Keepers twine for the kite tail is sandwiched between it and some black cardstock, so the kite could be pop-dotted too. Tied on the bows onto the twine using double-sided ribbon - hides a multitude of sins if your bow-tying technique is not up to scratch ;) This gorgeous sentiment is from My Favourite Things Clearly Sentimental About Success.
Many thanks for stopping by, wishing you success in your endeavours today too :)
PS. This made my day!!!
