Throwback Thursday - What A Year

Today I have done what I always find so very relaxing. I fussy cut out the pieces for not 1 card but 2! Taking a piece of paper or in this case, one of the cards from the What A Year Memories and More cards and cut it to pieces! The first card was in lots of little pieces too. I found one of these amazing cards that has Hello Sunshine printed on and added it to a Basic White C6 card base.The other card that I cut into had a swathe of flowers and leaves from one side, curving down along the bottom and slightly up to the other side. As you'll see I even cut the tiniest of leaves! Using the foam pads (Dimensionals) I stuck each piece back onto the new card. I added a few of the Artistry Blooms sequins once again, onto this time, the centre of the flowers and die cut sentiment from another of the smaller cards to complete this one.

Nothing complicated once again but the pleasure that I get from fussy cutting and making a card is just so rewarding, it's an amazing feeling.

Another amazing feeling is the buzz I get from being part of our amazing crafting family. For this November only, Stampin' UP! are offering a JOINING special offer of only £75 for your choice of £130 worth of product! That is such an amazing bargain!

Below is the 2nd card that I made. Again, I used my scissors to cut the houses out and this time I raised some of the houses onto foam pads and the other 2 between them were fixed flat with Multipurpose glue. The What A Year cards also have several sheets of peel off labels and sentiments one of which was added to the front. On the inside, there wasn't a phrase to add so I cannibalised the letters from some of the days of the week on one of the cards and made the sentiment.
