OCC Clean & Simple 4-Die Cutting-Day 2

Second day of classes and I am really enjoying it!  The lesson emphasis was on die-cutting.  I have been die-cutting for awhile, but I learned some really interesting techniques today.  Kristina Werner and Shari Carroll's projects were fantastic and I want to try them soon, but Debby Hughes' card was a stunner.  I tried to duplicate her card, she demonstrated faux paper cutting, I thought it was amazing.


The idea is to form a shape by filling in the space with paper cuts.  I die cut a lot of shapes, because I really didn't know which ones I would need.  Debby's card had one heart and was on black cardstock.  I wanted to try something a little different and used two hearts on red cardstock. I like the way it turned out, it does take some time, but if you are patient you are rewarded with a unique card.  

Thanks for coming by.......


  1. Very sweet Card - i used a variation of that technique to :)

  2. This turned out great! I really want to try this one too, but think I need some time to play around with all the different die cut pieces to get them to fit well. Not a quick card that's for sure. But yours is a stunner too!!

  3. Great take on the class lesson, the red is so striking. Patience really was the key for this one.


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
