Card for Moxie Fab Cutting and Trimming Challenge

Just a short post today. I've been in a little bit of a frazzled state of mind lately. I've got about four projects half done....finally sat down and finished a couple tonight. This card is for the Moxie Fab Cutting and Trimming Challenge.

The papers are from a retired CTMH kit called You & Me which I've had for a while, but only recently pulled out. This pattern was perfect for what I wanted to do with the card. It's a pretty simple concept to execute, just takes patience. I used my CTMH cutting knife to cut almost all the way around those petal shapes in order to pop them out and create some dimension. I also cut in a little bit on the edges to mimic the pattern of the paper.

This photos shows the dimension on the card.

The sentiment is from a new CTMH set called Card Word Puzzle which has a ton of words/sentiments that you can combine to create all kinds of phrases.

Hope you are having a wonderful, and creative weekend!

Supplies Used (all CTMH):
Paper: Colonial white Cardstock, You & Me kit
