For Sage's teacher

Monday, March 05, 2012

Sage's teacher, Mme. Vigier, is coming back from her maternity leave tomorrow, so I thought I'd make her a card to welcome her back. Mme. Vigier has taught all three of my kids and I really, really like her, so I'm quite happy she's back! I made the card using this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Die Cutting Partial Images.

I used my Happy Day die to create the partial cut. Then I masked the diecut area and stamped my BB: Houndstooth over the background. I removed the mask and stamped the Happy Day stamp frame.

This card also works for Ashley's Embellish Colour Challenge :





I used PTI cardstock (rustic white, sweet blush), stamps (happy day, BB:houndstooth, Signature Sentiments: Dress form) & dies (happy day). The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye (butterflies, stripe, gingham) and Crate (yellow butterfly punched out with my MS butterfly punch). The little gems on the butterfly are Hero Arts.

Thanks for looking!

Gorgeous! Did you use grunge board plus foam as your shim?

Great take on this technique! Love the card!

So pretty. Love the masking and the addition of the houndstooth. The MIM vid looked so fiddly to me. Did your clever self find a more hassle-free way to cut out the die?

Mme. Vigier is sure to be touched. Your card is such a wonderfully made, heartfelt offering.
