Framed Die Cut

This card is a CASE of one Julia Stanton made which I saw on Instagram.  Here is the link to her blog post about her card.

In ways my CASE was a fail but the card was a success to me.  I have been playing with an large die cut from Sizzix.  I loved how Julia show cased a die with a circle.  I used two circle dies to make my solid border and then just cut a focal point out of the large die.  Her coloring was very beautiful - mine did not turn out like that.  If you look very closely at the background, you will see that I used the die to emboss my background paper using the rubber mat.

This card will go to a friend who is battling cancer.

I am going to enter another card in the Happy Little Stampers monthly challenge for Die Cuts which is Anything Goes (of course, every card I made this week could have been entered since I have been playing with this particular die and trying to get my money's worth out of it)

Enjoy your Saturday - heading out to a flower place which is also having a flea market.  This could be very dangerous.
