MIM and the countdown begins... TEN



I am on the home stretch and I see the finish line in view!! woo hoo this is my 91st card.  I have decided that my last 10 cards will be Thank You cards for YOU!! in blogland for all the commenting and supporting and pom pom waving that have carried me through my journey to my personal goal to make 100 cards in 100 days : ) In case you have not heard I will be drawing for some yummy BLOG CANDY as my way of saying thank you for your support!.  See THIS POST for all the details.

This sweet little technique was introduced this week by Betsy Veldman for Papertrey Ink.  You can see the video tutorial HERE.  I almost didn't participate this week because I felt I didn't have the right supplies but I am so glad I did.  This is just the sweetest look!.  You simply run your cutting die through your machine and leave some of the die uncut.  The uncut portion anchors your die but the cut portion enables a dimensional look that is made outstanding when you sandwich in a coordinating colored cut die in between the card face and the card base.



I can't wait to order some beautiful flower dies from PTI because I know flowers or the butterfly would really look so much better but I really love this technique! Betsy is one of the best paper crafters!! IMHO : )

Because I like to use PTI products exclusively when I enter their challenges I was super limited in what I own.  This is a MUST REMEDY situation! heehee  These are the supplies I used:

 

It's your turn!! blurf over to the Make It Monday challenge of the week and link up your "Pop up die cuts" card... there is a prize!!

Have a wonderful day friends and again... THANK YOU!!

(((Hugs)))
Patti

Patti, what a fabulous card. Loved that you used a word die and it seemed like it would be easier than trying to do than the flower dies.
