Two Die Card




It’s hard to know how to dress to go for a walk this November. In our hour long walk this morning I think we said, “It’s a bit cold. I wish Id worn a heavier jacket” and “Now I’m too hot” in every turn we took. If we were out of the wind, it was quite warm but that wind had a bite to it and because we decided to walk through a survey there were a lot of corners. We have just one tree left with leaves – the Weeping Mulberry tree – and it has a tendency to drop about 80% of its leaves all at once….usually after a heavy frost……which we haven’t had yet! Some trees, like our birch tree, are bare; others haven’t even started to drop their leaves yet. Strange November weather for sure.



Today’s card meets the requirements for this challenge:







This card was made from two different dies – the Happy Birthday is a Memory Box die and the little cats are from Impression Obsession dies. These are my latest purchase – these and some small dogs which are just as nice.



The Happy Birthday die was used to cut the green cardstock and then two different pieces of light green were taped together and placed underneath so the fancy bit shows through the cut-away part. A small silver peel-off was added on the bottom and then the cats were glued on. The one sitting on the green part after ‘happy’ was added with dimensional glue dots but the other two were just glued flat. This was then mounted on a piece of black cardstock and then a green card base. Confession – the cats were die cut from the middle of the black cardstock. I hate wasting paper or cardstock that is hidden underneath others so I pretty much always die cut something out of the middle of it.



That’s all for a cool, but sunny, November 16th.





Cheers

Violet
