Christmas Joy

Friday, Friday....I've been waiting for you.  Glad you are finally here!

This card is another simple one for sure.  The card base is from a 6x6 paper pad by Webster's Pages. 

I cut the word JOY using my Slice digital die cut machine.  I love the way the letters are connected and that it cuts from 1" all the way up to 4".  I used the Words & Expressions digital cartridge.

What I really want you to notice is the little green border near the top of the card.  How did I cut that you ask?  Well, by accident!

The die that I used is called the Notebook Edge from MFT Stamps.

I guess I was just messing around with it and I noticed that the negative part of the die cut looked like little light bulbs strung across a line.  So, yes, by accident I invented a new die cut!  Here is a picture of the die.

So the lesson for all of us here is twofold.  Quick cards are fun and accidents make great art!

See you tomorrow.
