Challenge Blog – A LIM Die Cut

Now if I am not the Die Cut Queen, I am certainly a Die Cut Crowned Princess, I love my gadgets and I am proud of my range of die cut machines. So when I say that over at Less Is More this week we were being challenged to use die cuts – I had a  big choice

  1. What machine or system to use
  2. Which dies to use then…

I went into this challenge with no preconceptions at all – I wanted to see where my choice of die would take me… I decided on the Slice machine as its small and easy to use for cards and when browsing through the cards, I saw this boat, which immediately I could see working in silhouette

How Deep is the Deep Blue Sea?

This card is made completely of cardstock.. there is nothing else apart from a bit of 3D foam to add any depth. I love the Stampin Up smooth card for die cutting as it’s just the right thickness and cuts beautifully

Stash Used

  • Card – Paper Mania
  • Cardstock – Bazzill (Blues) and Stampin Up (Red and Black)
  • Die Cut – Slice by Making Memories
  • Punch – Stampin Up
  • Others – 3D Foam

Thanks for Reading – this is No 23 in my Craft 2012 Project
