Winnie & Walter | Just Die Cuts | Take Two

Hi crafty friends! Crystal here again on this wonderful Saturday celebrating National Ballpoint Pen Day(I'm not kidding)! What better way to celebrate than making a card, writing something in it (with your ballpoint pen) and sending it out. 

I chose to make a card without stamping! I can't believe that's allowed on a stamping site, yet it turned out pretty cute. For this, I am mixing some newer and older Cutaways from Winnie & Walter


First I started by trimming a piece of patterned paper and adhered to the card base. Next, using Winnie & Walter's  Cover Model: Multifaceted Cutaway I die cut on white card stock using my Big Shot. I did not take out all the triangles, just the center ones. Carefully placing adhesive on the back of each triangle so they don't fall out when I mail this. Then adhering the die cut to the patterned paper.


To continue with the no stamping, I die cut vellum using "ticket" die from Lana Cutaways, and wrapped silver thread and white twine to it, then glued that to the base.


The "congrats" is from the Spring release In a Word: Congrats Cutaway  using black card stock, and then placed on card base with 3D foam adhesive.  Voila, the card is ready for some penmanship and be mailed out!

Don't forget about the ongoing giveaway! Comment on my corresponding Winnie & Walter post on my blog for a chance to win a $30 gift certificate. There will be 4 posts for the month of June, giving you 4 entries to win.


Thanks so much for your time today! Hope you have a great week!

  1. I love the no-stamping card! I often find myself letting the die-cuts tell the story and love how you dressed this one up with the vellum and twine. The fresh colors are so pretty and the sprigs of greenery are perfect!

  6. I've been enjoying working with just dies on a few cards and love the fresh modern look. The faceted cover die in white, with blue paper behind it gives a wonderful CAS look that shows off that sentiment perfectly!

  8. Very pretty!!! I like the you wound the twine into a circle behind the diecut word. Adds a lot of interest to the card along with all the sharp diecutting.
