Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #61

Its time for our Anything goes challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.

My card today was inspired by the this card by one of my blogging friend and fabulous CAS crafter Aimes. She actually posted this card the day that I met her and my cousin Lynn in London. I loved it so much I went straight to eBay to hunt out this London cityscape die by Xcut
And here is the card I made using the colours of my blog header:

(hover over the image and click on the pin to save to pinterest)


I wanted to make this card for Lynn to remind her of her hols in London, but just couldn't get the dies to cut the card properly. Aimes came to the rescue and gave me some great tips and after a lot of attempts, a few tears and lots of wasted card, my card came together and I love it! So thank you Aimes and I hope this has already arrived Lynn so I haven't ruined the surprise!!

Our DT team at Addicted to Stamps and More have some great projects for you, so pop to have a look here.

  4. Yay!!! I'm so happy this worked out - it looks fabulous in the shades of purple! I think I may have to CASE you back and try layering the die cuts as I love the effect (it just daunted this CAS girl to do it first!) ;P
