Double Partial Die Cutting and a Winner!

Thank you, everyone who participated in my give away drawing.  It was fun to see how you are all encouraged by our paper crafting community.  The winner is: Hazel of My Card Attic!  Congratulations, Hazel, I will contact you soon so I can get your gift to you. 

It's spring break this week for our family, and I am going to be off line for most of it.  Before I go, I have a card to share for PTI's Make It Monday #207 with Laura Bassen.  She showed us how to partial die cut double time!  I made a simple wedding card.  I love how the background comes through the church windows:

I used PTI's Petite Places: Church, and Mat Stack 3 dies to create the double cut.  Then I cut out the sentiment with PTI's Swoosh and heat embossed the coordinating stamp in white embossing powder.  The heart on the church is cut with a die from Shaker's + Sprinkles from Berry Sorbet cs.  The background was a combination of inks: Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest, and Berry Sorbet.  The white panel is raised with foam adhesive.

Laura Bassen's card on the Make It Monday #207 video is a real treat!
 
Thanks for coming over to visit!  I will be away from blogland for most of spring break, so I want to wish everyone an early Happy Easter.  Have a wonderful day!

  26. My first thought after watching Laura's video was wouldn't the petite church look adorable in the middle of Mat Stack #3 (only I don't own the church die). Then I see your fabulous card here. Your rocked the challenge and love the way you used the new swoosh die & stamp for your sentiment. Great job, Kara Lynn!
