Hello friends. This week's Make It Monday challenge is a fun one brought to us by the very talented Betsy Veldman, where she shows us how to spotlight a word diecut on our cards. You can check out her beautiful card and video right HERE.
It definitely works a lot easier to use a larger and wider word die cut, but I chose to use one of the medium size word dies from the BIG HUGS set.
After stamping my image from What The Doodle: Tea Time I diecut the "hugs" from the center of the tea cup, popped it out and colored it using some of my Copic markers. I tried to use colors that somewhat matched my good china (that I never hardly use anymore...sigh), and then used it as one of my props when taking my photographs...trying to be a little more intentional about my photography after reading Lexi's tips and tricks post the other day! Because I was aiming for more of a CAS card, I used a Gina Marie Designs die to diecut around the tea cup for a little more interest, and then added the sentiments on the top and bottom of the card.
I matted my card to a layer of Raspberry Fizz cs and then mounted to a white card base. I finished off the card with a few iridescent sequins and some baker's twine.
There is still plenty of time to play along with this challenge, so check out Betsy's lovely card and video right HERE.
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
