Cut It Out!

This is the third Wednesday of July, which means it is the day that Kelly, Barb, and I reveal our Ready, Set, Go cards. 

Not sure what Ready, Set, Go is? Well, it's a lot of fun! And a bit of creativity. And an extreme challenge theme.

Ready, Set, Go is an idea that Kelly came up with and she invited Barb and I to join her on the adventure. We take turns choosing the theme (this month it's Kelly's turn), but the idea is for it to be a bit more challenging than just the average theme.

Kelly's Challenge theme is...

Cut It Out!

Kelly told us that in her house growing up, her mom was "constantly telling my brother and I to knock it off or cut it out!" In keeping with that, she challenged the three of us to create a card or project with 'cutting it out!' as the main focus. 

Oh, and because there are 3 of us and "we 3 like being 3", Kelly also instructed us to use at least 3 cuts on our cards.

Sooooo... I decided to just use dies (no stamps) to create my card. Probably not my best decision ever, but that's what I did. I used these three dies - 

My Favorite Things Sending Big Hugs 

Spellbinders Color Block Slices 

My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangles

I used a white Gelly Roll Gel Pen to add some highlights (faux stitching) to the word BIG.

Be sure to check out Barb's blog and Kelly's blog to see what they did with this Ready Set Go theme!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
