Last day for Anything Goes at Die Cut Divas

Happy New Year's Eve!! I'm sure it'll be quite a different one than last year!! Hope you're all staying safe out there and hope 2021 brings better things for all of us!

It's the last day of our Die Cut Divas December challenge Anything Goes. I have a post up with the rest of the end-of-month squad HERE for some last minute inspiration using products from our fabulous sponsor Kat Scrappiness. Today's card uses one of their slimline dies plus a jumbo sentiment. Love, love, love!!

Supplies: Paper - American Crafts Christmas A2 card;
Paper Studio Holiday and Glitter;
Neenah Classic Crest Solar White
Dies - Kat Scrappiness Thank You with Shadow and
Other - star gems (gift from friend Heather)

Kat Scrappiness

Very quick and easy card! I used a striped card base and simply added a panel of zig zag & the layered sentiment. A few star gems - done!! Just shows how the slimline dies can work for A2 cards too - very versatile! I love the sentiment with the offset mat and Kat Scrappiness has several of this type - see them HERE. Now I'm set with another thank you card for holiday gifts - good for mass production!!

I've ordered from Kat Scrappiness twice since becoming a Diva and learning this company would be the December sponsor. They have a great selection in their own brand as well as oodles of other brands, plus excellent customer service. I bought items from their brand and found them very high quality. Thanks Kat Scrappiness!!

And now a twofer! My mom needed a card to thank a friend for bringing over a holiday bread (delicious!!) so I grabbed a green thank you I'd already die cut and came up with this:

When I cut the nesting zig zag panels, there were little negatives left. Thought they'd be a fun accent behind the thank you. Plaid is from Authentique (one of their mix of collections pads) and the birdies are from MFT's Tweet Holidays (retired) - thanks again to my friend Lin (Sending Hugs).

Be sure to upload your Anything Goes creation (using a die cut, of course & max of 4 entries) to the challenge link up by 9pm Pacific Time today. Then be sure to pop back over to Die Cut Divas for a new challenge tomorrow and for the December winner & team faves on January 3rd!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!!

That is a lovely sentiment die, and love the cards you've created with it!

You have been busy! All the cards are fantastic. The first card is dramatic with the colors and that slimline panel. The 2nd card is just darling with those cute birdies & leftovers from die-cutting - they really add to the card.
