Die Cut Divas ~ November Challenge

We're back at Die Cut Divas with a new challenge for November. This month, our challenge is


We're happy to have Kat Scrappiness as our sponsor this month. They will be awarding our winner a Kat Scrappiness gift pack, valued at least $25. We thank them for their support.

Here's my card

I have a story. I ordered some dies from Kat Scrappiness at the end of May. I had it shipped to my friend's home in Washington State. Shipping from the US to Canada is crazy expensive. I had anticipated being able to travel from Canada to visit her before now. However, the land border only opened for Canadians traveling to the US yesterday. That would not have given me enough time to create something for this blog post. Good thing she's a paper crafter. I asked her to open my package and die cut some things for me in white and in black and mail them to me. Initially, I was going to ask her to send me the dies. Then, it occurred to me that I didn't really need the dies, just die cuts. Being the good friend she is, she die cut several for me and sent them to me. 

For my card, I started with a panel of white cardstock that measured 7.5" x 2.5". I inked it up using Newton's Nook's Waves and Splashes stencil, available at Kat Scrappiness with distress inks (salty ocean, peacock feathers, tumbled glass and mermaid lagoon. For the fish, I used Rubbernecker Stamps' Fish Group stamp set. I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I added color with Copic markers - E50, G05, G07, V06, V15, Y38, YR16. I then fussy cut the fish. For the sentiment, I used Technique Tuesday's Look Out World, masking the "happy" from the "happy birthday" stamp and Simon Says STAMP's Best Fishes stamp set for the "fishes". I used Kat Scrappiness' Double Stitched Nesting Slimline dies for the black frame. I used a top folding card base, measuring 8.5" x 3.5". I adhered the black frame and then the focal panel to the card base to complete the card.

We'd love to see your slimline or mini slimline cards.
