IDIC card making challenge 'Make the cut'

This week on IDIC the challenge is 'Make the Cut' which requires you to use your die cutting machines and/or punches on your card.

The DT had the opportunity to use images from this weeks sponsor Floppy Latte and with lots of birthdays in February I chose a cute image of a girl with a birthday cake in the middle of her celebrations found here.

I actually ended up making 3 cards with the image and coloured them using my trusty pro markers (found one had completely dried up and had never used it as the lid didn't fit properly should I contact letraset do you think??) I ended up using my newest spellbinders die 'eyelet squares' to cut the finished stamp out. Because the image is quite detailed I kept the diecutting and embellishments to a minimum, so as usual my cards are very simple

Please go over to visit IDIC this week to see the cards created by the DT as they really are a talented lot (not sure how I ended up on there!!) so please join us with your card creations x


  1. Lovely cards....and I think I would contact Letraset about the faulty one.

  3. Super cards, and yes, contact Letraset, there is a link on my blog, they are very good with customer service in my experience.
