Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #193: Camouflaging Die Cuts

December 16, 2014

Just a quick post to share a card for this week’s great Make It Monday challenge,  #193, Camouflaging Die Cuts, from Laura Bassen at PTI:

I used stamps from PTI’s Painted Poinsettias stamp set and a masking technique to create the background. I then die cut “Merry” out of the background and placed it on top of a stack of 5 other white “Merry” die cuts which I had glued together.

Here are two more views:

December 2014 004editedThis is another fun challenge from PTI and I hope to make a couple more cards for it.

That’s it for today though! Thanks for stopping by.



P.S. I have been experimenting with different white card stocks. I would like to find a heavy white card stock that takes ink well and is strong enough to be used as a card base by itself. If you are a card maker and have a favorite please share any insights in the comments below. Thanks!

    PTI’s stamper select white is awesome and so is Neenah 120lb solar white paper sold in 25 pack at Simon Says Stamp!

    This card is stunning. You made the most of the MIM technique. I use PTI’s white c/s; it has a great weight.

    Beautifully stamped!

    All of your cards for this challenge have been positively wonderful! Keep ’em coming!

    Oh and if you don’t mind buying in bulk, I absolutely love ‘s selection of cardstock, I always have on hand their solid white 120# and classic cream 120# (100 sheets at 19.99 is a pretty good deal!) but have also been pleased with their entire selection, including metallics and vellum. Hope this helps!
