JUST US GIRLS #297 Trend Week



Hi there! It's time for a new challenge at JUST US GIRLS! Sue is your hostess this time around for Trend Week. She's picked a fun trend that is all the rage right now: Stacked Die Cuts! Here's the card I came up with:


 and the inside:

I was surfing Pinterest (again) and came across this Santa tag tutorial, using a soda can tab for the belt buckle, and I knew I just had to CASE it (but with my own spin to it...of course... ☺) I used black ribbon, silver brads, and added white 'trim' to the bottom of it. My sentiment was die cut 4 times: 3 in white and one in red. The white die cuts were glued together then glued off center onto the red one, for a bit of contrast.

Now it's your turn to play along! I hope to see what you created using stacked die cuts. Be sure to link up your card or project at Just Us Girls so we can see it. While there, please check out the amazing cards the other ladies, and our June GD Ros Crawford, have made and leave them some bloggy love! Remember that if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our June challenges, you'll be in the running for our Guest Designer for the month of August! Good luck and I hope you have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
