joy in august (Moxie Fab, KIS)

Promised to show you the card I was working on when yesterday's card was born.  Well, I was using square dies - cutting squares and then cutting the squares into frames by using smaller squares to cut out the centers.  Then I was cutting the frames in half diagonally to make oversized chevrons.  Confused?  You should be.

Have a look.

A Christmas tree.  A whimsical one.  I really like the sentiment die cut from vellum  (like I used on this card) but I figure it's kinda hard to see in photos.  So for this card (for a submission) I decided to ink up a portion of the backside of the sentiment.  Still hard to see I guess.  But it is whimsical, trust me ;)

Hi Maria,
Yes, Whimsical is a great word! I love the card - your vellum JOY really caught my eye - so it clearly is not invisible! (oops, pun not intended!) LOL
