JAI 88 - Just Add a Die Cut

There's a 'fantabulous' challenge at Just Add Ink this week to add a die cut to your paper craft project.

I chose to use ...
  • Petite Pocket
  • Two Tags
... to make a matching gift card for another 'Lucky Owl' that I made from some paisley denim material.

JAI 88 - Add a Die Cut (or two)

Paisley Denim 'Lucky' Owl with Matching Petite Pocket

The tag needed to be trimmed a bit so it could fit inside the pocket.

I'm so glad I kept my Paisley Background Stamp as it was just right for adding some extra detail to the tag. I also pressed the little owl from Fox and Friends against the Paisley stamp (kissing technique) to make the pattern on the owl.

The colours that I used for this project are Cherry Cobbler and Not Quite Navy.

The idea was inspired by a beautiful project that Sophie Zadeh demonstrated at Hobart Regionals using the Petite Pocket Die and a piece of denim from a much loved pair of jeans (see above).

The Pocket ...

... the Tag

... and the Owl.

Die Cuts are my favourite tools to use for a paper craft project. I hope you have been inspired to play along with our 88th Challenge at Just Add Ink.

Why don't you hop on over and view the other beautiful projects that the rest of the Design Team have made and link up your own entry?

Happy stamping (and cutting). I hope you have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
