New Job Card

As I don't have a DT card to show you this week, I thought I would share the 'New Job' card I made for my beautiful daughter - she lives in London and has just landed a job in a theatre there as a Front of House member of staff.

I made the 8" x 8" card using one of the Xcut 'Build A Scene' die sets. Initially I had a problem getting my card stock out of the dies after cutting them out because some areas are so intricate eg windows.  After asking for help on one of the facebook group I belong to, I solved the problem - the cure was to wipe the dies with a tumble dryer sheet (not used), the dies then cut out and released the card stock like a dream.

The landscape was made using 3 different shades of grey card stock, plus some black, red and white cardstock to accent it the scene.  To finish off I die cut some clouds. The buses and some of the taxis where layered up to give it a little dimension.

Here's What I Used:
Cardstock (CS): Grey, Red, Black, White
Dies - Xcut 'Build A Scene' London, Joy! 'Clouds'
Other - Distressing Ink, Foam pads

My daughter loved it - which made all my hard work worth it apart from the fact that I paid 93p for first class post so she's get it the next day, and it took 2 days to get to her and was totally bent and twisted when it arrived. So I'm a bit annoyed!!!

Calling all Sugar Nellie Fans - there is a promotion over at Funkykits on digi and rubber stamps until the end of the month, so get yourself over there and grab a sugary bargain.

I'll been sharing my Sugar Nellie, Sugar Bowl and Sweet Stampin DT cards here next week.

REMINDER: It's the last week of the Design Team call out for Sweet Stampin' - it ends on Friday 30th May 2014 at 6pm gmt and the successful applicants will be contacted shortly after that.  We're a really friendly and fun bunch so why not give it a go we'd love for you to join us, all details are on our blog here.

Thank you for visiting.

Hugs Janine x

What a brilliant card. I didn't know this die set existed but I love it. The post office service is horrendous, isn't it? I'm still waiting for an order from Craft Mojo that they sent out on 28th April :( Have a lovely weekend xx
