Just Us Girls #413 - Wild Card Week

When there are 5 Saturdays in a month, Just Us Girls' last challenge is our Wild Card Week and the host can choose whatever she likes.  Nancy is asking for word die cuts.
I figured if one die cut word was good, more would be better.


I made a sentiment covered PTI Tipped Top panel using a die from Elizabeth Crafts.  Without removing one of the cuts, I inked it up sort of ombre' style with Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink.  I placed it on my panel first and then glued the rest of the cuts around it.  The background is MFT's Houndstooth stamped in the same ink.  A little time consuming but a great masculine card I think.

This should be an easy challenge for you.  We all have word dies and you don't have to go overboard like I did.  I hope we have a ton of entries this week.

  7. This card looks like it was cas and easy to make but using die cuts - time consuming for sure but WOW! what a result you got here. I agree with others that like the angle. That background is awesome and the blue HB perfect.
