Today's card is for the sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.
This is the posted sketch:
We were asked to keep the angular shape in our card. Since this is not a simple rectangle on its side but actual cut angles, there are two ways to accomplish this. First is by use of a die and the second is by manual cutting. To get odd angles like this, simply draw a cross with the intersection at the exact middle of each line then cut from point to point.
Very straightforward. Or find a die and use that!
For this sweet little hedgehog I used an embossing folder and partially embossed the backgorund so I could glue down my sentiment. I added some snowflakes and covered them in Wink of Stella although you can't see it in the photos.
A fun quick card for those who don't like to stamp - it's all die cuts!
