DCM - And Cut!

This week its Tracie setting the dare and it is to make a card and CUT!

Any theme goes, so for those of you needing a break from Christmas crafting this is the perfect opportunity to have a change. All styles are welcome but there MUST be an element of handcutting somewhere. It could be a greeting, a shape, letters printed on your pc and handcut, anything goes as long as you did it by hand.

I decided to go 'simple' for this week's dare as it's really how I feel at the mo! My befuzzled brain is definately not up to too much of a challenge! LOL.

The background was water-coloured with H2O lookie likies. I drew the silhouette by hand on the reverse of some black card and then hand cut it out. With a silver pen, I added doodling round the edge of the 'houses' and hand wrote a greeting along the bottom. The 'Happy Birthday' was done using a letter stencil onto some black card. This was cut out and matted onto a leftover piece of the background offcut.
