It's a Good Day





Any day is a good day when I get to play with distressed stamps and papers.  The tricycle, the greeting and the papers are all sort of distressed looking.  That's a win-win-win!

The papers are from the Cosmo Cricket Wanted collection.  I just layered a few together to make the background.  At the seam, I used a border die  and to make the focal image I cut a large circle and a scalloped circle mat.

By the way, the image is from Unity Stamp Company - one of my favorites.

Super quick - and a good masculine card I think.

I did cut 2 more circles out of chipboard and placed them behind my image.  Even then, it didn't stand out enough, so I used some foam squares and that did the trick.

Don't forget to use your dies when you need a quick card.  They are handy dandy tools.

Tomorrow I am going to show you some of the die cutting machines on the market.  I've owned a few different models, so I thought I would share what I know about each.
See you then,

Susie
