Challenging cutouts...


Hope you had a nice weekend, ours was quiet after last week's extreme partying...

I have been making a few cards for sale (a local shop wants to stock my stuff) based on this idea - which I have modified to suit my tools.

It came to me that the ones I have been making would work perfectly for the CAS-ual Friday challenge this week - #111 Buttons and if I chose the sentiment carefully it would work as a card for a good friend.

So the main photo is my entry. I am really pleased with the end result and hope my friend will be too.

I used scrap paper for both the patterned paper (My Minds Eye) and the white spotty embossed paper. The butterfly is the teeniest die from an Xcut set I have. The sentiment was punched using my shiny new word window punch by Stampin' Up. The button and the twine are from my stash.

Here are the cards I had made before, which sparked the idea, you can see I switched out the Candi for a button -

Here is one on it's own, so you can see it in detail.

Cutout Heart - With Love
I love these cards - not just because they are super simple. but because I can use all the scraps I have kicking around.



  1. so pretty! I like the way you used the negative die cuts :)

  2. These are very cute! Thanks for playing along with us over at CAS-ual Fridays!

  3. I think this works really well with the bolder papers and colours -that orange butterfly is great. Are those greetings using your new punch?

    1. I agree with you about the bolder papers working best. The greetings use the new Stampin' Up Word Window punch...some are winging their way to you as we speak :) Cx

  4. What a great way to make a set! Love your embossed panels with the die cuts. Thanks so much for joining the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!
