We are focusing on The Word! at Cut It Up this time. Of course, you still need to include some sort of die cut -- my cut is the sentiment! You'll want to link up for this one because we have a wonderful sponsor -- Cute As A Button! They have some adorable buttons over there for your sewing/crafting! Check them out!
My sentiment is from Cricut Design Studio and the cartridge is Birthday Cake.
My card base is from the Fundamental CS CTMH. I layered a piece of photo paper I had cut off from printing. This is a great way to use that left over photo paper if you don't fill your sheet.
My next layer is Daisy White CS inked with CTMH Inks: Canary, Sunset, and Pixie. I then cut a circle stencil in DS and put in some Daisy White Pigment Ink circles to give it a Bokeh Effect. I'm not so sure I fully achieved that look, but it still has a festive look suitable for a celebration! My husband thought it looked like an abstract balloon picture......ok, that works, too!
I cut the sentiment out of Black Fundamental CS from CTMH and a Baker's Twine bow wraps it up!
