Die Cut Coloring Page Cards


I've been looking through some of my older dies lately and came across this great washer border die by Tim Holtz.  I love repeating circle patterns so this washer die really spoke to me.  I was trying to think of a unique way to add lots of color to the die without a lot of tedious work, and once again, coloring book pages came to the rescue!  

I ran it through my Vagabond and adhered it diagonally to the front of a white card panel.  I was able to get several cards out of one coloring book page, but I loved them so much that I've already mailed some of them out to friends before I could take the pictures.

I die due a few sentiments using the Avery Elle "Sentimental" dies from black card stock and placed them at the same diagonal angle on the card front, and stamped the coordinating messages (from the same Avery Elle set) with black versafine ink for a crisp, clear impression.  I love this simple design that lets the colored die cut shine. 

Hope you have a great weekend.  They are calling for SNOW (really??) over the next couple days.  I am so ready for Spring!
