It’s June 1st and that means it is time for another challenge at Scrap It Girl.
This month, the theme is dies. I used an old Cottage Cutz die to create this adorable card …
I started by cutting the die multiple times with different colors of cardstock:
Then, I inked the edges with Distress Ink to give it a bit of depth. I completely covered the comb so it would be a different color red than the tail feathers. I then added a bit of color to the cuts in the dies with a gray pen. For the eyes, I attached a piece of brown cardstock to the back. Then I assembled the rooster Next, I assembled the card using cardstock and Best Creations paper. Glittered paper is sometimes hard to adhere to. So I used Art Glitter Designer Dries Clear Adhesive when attaching the pieces to the glittered portion of the paper. Then I thought the rooster needed a bit more definition, so I made country stitch marks with a black pen.
Finally, I added a stamp from Darcie’s. Didn’t it turn out cute?!
Create something — a card, layout, mini album, altered art — using dies and post them on the Scrap It Girl website. The best entry will win an amazing prize package that includes Spellbinders dies!
You have until the end of June to enter … get cropping!
This card is very cute! I would make anyone smile should they receive it in the mail.
