RSG: Cut it out!

Hi friends!

Happy Friday!

Today's card is for the Ready, Set, Go Challenge for July

and I'm the hostess this month :)

Growing up, mum would always tell my brother and I

 (irish twins we were)

to "Knock it off!" or "Cut it out!"

And, of course, we usually wouldn't, LOL!

So using a play on those words, my challenge is:

Create a card or project with 'cutting it out' as the main focus.  You can be as creative as you like!  You can use a simple die like an oval or get fancy schmancy and REALLY cut up your card - it's up to you!  BUT! Because there are 3 of us, you must use at least 3 cuts on your card.  I will leave it up to you how you interpret where those cuts will be :)  Everything else is as you wish - colors, theme, etc!

 So for my card, I just got the new Prize Ribbon distress ink

so I decided to give it a try.

It's gorgeous!

I started by embossing the floral image from Altenew with white 

embossing powder from Taylored Expressions,

then blended prize ribbon and salvaged patina haphazardly onto it.

I used my mini mister to spray water on the panel and let it dry.

Once it was dry, I cut it with a 1. stitched die

and then 2. a straight die down the middle but wonky.

I realize now that I completely failed the 'use 3 dies' but 

I honestly thought I did!

We'll just pretend we don't see that :)

Be sure to see what Barb has created and Jeanette has created

with this theme.

We post once a month with a mostly crazy or extreme theme 

and we 'card online together' because we can't be in person :(

If you are inspired to create as well, join in!

It's a beautiful thing to inspire others to create, too!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
