MIM #93



This week's MIM video was by Ashley Cannon Newell and it was about splitting your die cuts to give then a totally new and different look.  For my card I decided that the die cut I wanted to split was the Parisian Lace Doily die.  This die is fairly large so I actually removed about a 1/2" from the centre of the die so that my sentiment would fit comfortably in between.


All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock:  Simply Chartreuse, Pure Poppy, White
Patterned paper: Sugar Plum
Stamps: Stylish Sentiments Holidays, Winter Penguin
Ink:  True Black, Simply Chartreuse
Dies: Parisian Lace Doily, Winter Penguin
other: foam tape, Copic marker Y35
