Simon Says Stamp! Exclusive Dies Week - Card #2

Hi everyone,

I'm back with day 2 of my week of sharing cards made using Simon Says Stamp! Exclusive Dies! If you haven't seen yesterday's card or read about the giveaway I'm doing please check it out HERE.

Here is today's card:


For today's card I used the Simon Says Stamp! Oh Happy Day Die. I covered my card with some Basic Grey paper. I then cut a piece of cardstock slightly smaller than the card and stamped the bottom part of a Hero Arts sentiment on it. I then cut the words of the die apart using my Tim Holtz scissors (yes, you read that right!) so I could run my stamped panel through my diecut machine and use just the negative space of 'Happy' to go with the rest of my sentiment. A little bit of twine and this card is done!


Be sure to stop by tomorrow for a new Simon Says Stamp Challenge card as well as Thursday and Friday for more cards using Simon Says Stamp!'s Exclusive Dies.

Thanks for stopping by!

Love the yummy effect you get with that printed paper showing through - kind of leopardish? if that's a word?

Cutting the die apart and then letting that pp show through makes this card very special! Love this idea!
