Partial Die-Cutting using the Celebrate Today Bundle

Hi everyone,

I am hoping that everyone is staying warm.  I know it is really cold here and as I type this there is ice hitting my windows as the sleet is falling.  UGH, winter!  Well, how about a funny, bright and cheery card to get us out of the winter blahs...

This card features a partial die-cutting technique which allows you to only cut a portion of your die-cut and leave it intact with the card.  The video below shows you step by step on how to do this technique.  As usual, all the supplies I used are linked below.

Watercolor Background and Lotus Blossom Stamp

Happy MLK Day!  Hope everyone is enjoying their day.  Take a look at today's card project.  I just love the watercolor look and you never get the same image twice!  I used the same combination of colors on both cards, but see how different they are?

Watch the video below to see how I created this background and then finished it off with the Free Lotus Blossom Sale-a-bration stamp set.  Products in the Sale-a-bration are free with $50 purchase from my online store.  All the supplies used in today's video are linked below.
