These cards all feature the Big Bang Confetti cutaways. I really love that this cluster of dies produces 4 different sizes of circles, stars and diamonds in one pass. Creating your own embellishments has never been easier! I originally had a different idea for these cutaways, but after I saw Shay's fun and funky card this week I had to abort and go a different direction.
A couple turns of the crank later and I had a large selection of shapes to work with. Now it's time to mix and match.
I really had a blast putting these together. You really can't go wrong. After I was done with the confetti I added a few birthday mix sequins for good measure.
The fun thing about making these embellies, aside from picking out the colorful papers, is randomly adhering them on top of each other. Usually I'm a liner-upper and center everything. Wow, it's so much quicker to throw caution to the wind and just plop them down!
To add to the party atmosphere, I layered a few other patterns under the main panel and secured them all with a strip of washi tape.
With the leftovers, I made a little baby card. The embellies are quieter on this card, with tone-on-tone layers, and simple stars. I was originally having trouble with where to put the sentiment on this and the last card, until I decided to use one of the embellies to house the sentiment. Problem solved.
My final card uses more left overs. I used the small diamonds to fill the white space in the center of the circles. This card uses the colors from the current Fusion Challenge, and all three cards use the sketch from the challenge.
Thanks for looking, and I'll see you tomorrow for the final episode in this week to die for!
