Moxie Fab- Die Cut Challenge

Hello friends!

I wanted to share a card I made for the Die Cut Challenge that Cath is hosting over at Moxie Fab World.

Our challenge is to incorporate die cuts in an innovative way and well, my entire card is a die cut.  Using my Cricut and the Just Because Cards cartridge I cut the sailboat image at 6" from cardstock and patterned paper (Simple Stories- Celebrations).  To make the die cut a card, I cut 2 shadow layers and scored the second shadow layer below the flag and adding some super strong adhesive above the flag to hold the layers together.  

I stamped some swirls (PTI- Fancy Flourishes), and sentiment (Half Pint Heroes- Waltzingmouse Stamps) on the sails and added the star (another die cut) and some buttons for a little extra embellishment. (And because I really like buttons and twine. They are kinda my go-to embellies.)  

This card is going to my sweet nephew Carson who is turning 1 in just a couple weeks along with a whole boat-load (get it??) of bath time toys.  Do you think he will like it?

Can't wait to see you ideas for using die cuts!  Link up your project by Feb 13 to play along!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous day!
