Card inspiration from my 'bit box', part 2


Today I want to share another card which I made from my left over bits.

I had cut out a Sizzex mixed media die which I had stenciled through, so I simply used this and beneath it I added a white border cut from a Spellbinders border die which I had left over.

I wrapped a strip of lilac card around the die cuts, then mounted onto purple card, then onto a card front.
I finished with a butterfly and sentiment.

Simple as that

Card inspiration from my 'bit box'


Like many of you, I am sure,  I have a box full of bits of card left over from my card making.

I considered throwing them away, then decided to set myself a challenge to make one or two cards using nothing (well nearly ) else.

This first card was made with some pieces of card which I had coloured with Brusho paints - one piece I had spritzed with a solution of Brusho,  and the second was made by scattering Brusho crystals over card then spritzing with water.

I cut the card using a Sweet Dixi die, then tied complimentary ribbon around it and finished with a sentiment.

I like this and am so glad I didn't throw the bits away.

Another birthday card using Sizzix mixed media dies

This card is another version of the card I shared with you in my last post

Whilst the previous card was mainly black and white, I wanted to make one using another colour, and this is the result.

I am not sure which I prefer.  What do you think?

A special birthday card using Sizzix mixed media dies


I needed to make a special card for my daughter's birthday.
Here it is:

The card measures 8.25 inches square.  This is a little bigger than I usually make but it was governed by the size of the die I used.
I cut the sizzix mixed media die four times, turning each time to form a square.
I mounted this onto black and white patterned card, which I sat onto a card base.
The die left an irregular central shape which I covered with a simple circle.
On top of the circle I sat two black die cuts made using a Sue Wilson die, then finished with a stamped sentiment, bow, die cut flourish and a flower

Hope you like it
