You've Passed!

I've managed to make 15 cards in the last 2 days as I need to increase my stock ready for the 3 craft fairs I am doing over the next 5 weeks. I couldn't possible have made that many if I had stamped all the images so have been making some with decoupage and die cuts. I love these LOTV die cuts especially as some of them have images which are not available as stamps yet. I know this one is now but I must admit it saved me a lot of colouring, though that is something I love to do and find very relaxing. When you sell cards people don;t always appreciate how long it takes to colour in an image so these die cuts are great.

I wanted to make the card suitable for male or female and though these papers are Wild Rose For Men think they fit the bill. I used the MS simple scallop punch and added some card candi. The letter L had been cut in half to show they have passed and the sentiment is from the Tulip range from Docrafts.

I would like to enter this into the dies to die for (use die cuts) at Papertake, Primary Colours at Delightful and Bold and bright at One Stop Craft.

I was so pleased that my pirate card I posted on Monday using a Whoopsi Daisy image made top 5.
