Blueprint Card

Hi!  Today's challenge at The Paper Players comes from Jaydee and she is challenging us to use die-cuts on our cards.  Not a hard task, right?


My card is totally die-cut!  I just received my first set of Blueprints dies and decided to use one of the sketches provided to make my card.


I went with a navy, lime and aqua color scheme and used a stencil and some translucent embossing paste on the green panel.  The "thanks" die cut is from WPlus9 but the rest of the die cuts are from Blueprints 14 by My Favorite Things.

This was an easy card to put together and now I'm hooked on Blueprints dies and want all of them (of course!).



Thanks for visiting.  The rest of the team have used their die-cutting machines to good effect and produced some wonderful cards so be sure to check them out.

Products used:

Ink:  Audrey Blue, Lemon Chiffon (SSS)
Cardstock:  Neenah Desert Storm, Soft Navy, Green Apple, Audrey Blue (SSS), Black, White
Accessories:  MFT Blueprints 14, WP9 Hand-Lettered Thanks, Lawn Fawn twine, Diamond Circles Stencil (SSS), Translucent EP

Cheers
Karren
