I pride myself on making do with what I have (albeit a mountain load of product) when it comes to my craft time and producing something different. I am blessed to have a lot of paper (including scraps..sigh*), embellishments, stamps and embossing folders. One thing I do lack however is a good couple of die cut sets to utilise on cards. Can anyone say Spellbinders? I think I have been drooling over the collection of die's at our local scrapbook store for well over a year now and I have never bought a single one. Go figure.
Anway, because of this little dilemma, I make my own funky shapes for cards using a few of the shaped rulers I do have as well as freehand (a lot). It makes the crative process so much more fun, to know that I have made something all on my own.
Todays card is one of those specimens that used my own die cut ability's :)
I dug through my scrap paper stash and put together a mix of different colours and patterns, inked everything in a red chalk and put together a ribbon and flower embellie in no time (yeah right, try two hours...)
I love the eclectic mix of patterns, and of course, the ribbon. It's like icing on a cake :)
