AAA Cards Challenge #109 - Die Cuts Only

Hello and welcome to my blog where I'm introducing the new challenge starting today at AAA Cards. If you love using dies this will be a piece of cake, if you're not too sure about dies then this could be the perfect opportunity to be challenged and conquer your fear.


For my card I used three dies and a bit of thinking outside of the box!

Next month it will be St Patrick's Day and that was what led me towards the green four leaf clover on my card. I expect you can work out how I achieved a four leaf clover as it's actually four heart die cuts placed together with a hand drawn stalk.

STAMPlorations is the sponsor for this AAA Cards challenge and I used their good luck die cut from some textured brown card. And yes it is ok to have texture on a CAS card but just not all over, AAA Cards like the white space to be smooth and unpatterned.

Dies: CUTplorations, good luck; Lil'inker, stitched mats rectangles;Lawn Fawn, hearts 

Do pop over to AAA Cards and check out the masterful way the DT have used dies and kept their cards super CAS too - HERE. And be sure to read the challenge requirements while you're there.

Thanks for your time today, it's been so much fun having you visit.

And keep crafting!

  1. Very CAS and very striking with the pop of green against the B&W

  2. Lovely card, Jane, beautifully CAS. You've inspired me to create a few good luck cards as it's a sentiment I don't seem to use very often!

  3. This is so pretty card, Jane! Love your use of heart die cuts for creating a lucky shamrock. Have a beautiful day, dear! - Sweet Kobylkin

  4. Cute card and very clever, Jane! I was just thinking that I wanted a four leaf clover die and now maybe I don't need it :)

  5. Very fun, Jane. Lots of great white space. The shamrock is super!
