DCM - and Cut!

Gumball Treat




This is the dare from DCM:

We've all loved looking at all your beribboned cards for Christmas and how you've cooked up the Little Extra Recipe. As for who's won the luscious ribbon giveaway, we're going to keep you in suspense a little longer! This week its Tracie setting the dare and it is to make a card and CUT!

Any theme goes, so for those of you needing a break from Christmas crafting this is the perfect opportunity to have a change. All styles are welcome but there MUST be an element of handcutting somewhere. It could be a greeting, a shape, letters printed on your pc and handcut, anything goes as long as you did it by hand.


This was a fun challenge I have been wanting to use this stamp for ages and the dare just fit it perfectly. I stamped and heat embossed the image twice in full and four of the base half.
I then stamped & masked the gumballs in different colours and coloured the base in turquoise pigment pen. I then hand cut each piece and assembled with foam to create a 3d picture.
I then put glossy accents on the top half to give glassy look! The colours I picked to coordinate with the yummy glitter backing paper.
Thanks for stopping by!
