AAA Cards Game #111 - Use Only One Third

Hi and welcome to my b;log.  Today I'm sharing my DT card for the new AAA Cards Challenge that starts today where we want you to only use one third of your CAS card.

I plumped for using the top horizontal third for my card, but of course it could be any third, horizontal, vertical or diagonal.

And as Winnie & Walter are sponsoring this challenge I mainly used their products.  I die cut the happy several times for dimension and placed it near the top before stamping the hat and CHRISTMAS.

I'm loving how there's a trick of the eye that makes the happy look as if it's been cut out of the white card base rather than out of the teal card and added on top.

Stamps: Winnie & Walter, Seasons Tweetings; Uniko, Festive Sentiments
Ink: SU, dapper denim
Die: Winnie & Walter, In a Word Happy Cutaway
Embellishments: Stickles, crystal

There are examples of just about every other way of using one third that comes to mind on the AAA Cards blog - HERE. So much inspired creativity from the DT!

Thanks so much for spending some time looking at my blog today, it's been fabulous having your company.

And keep crafting!

  2. love the teal behind the diecut openings

  3. Jane, fabulous card! So simple - just one colour, but how smart you are to match the colour of the cardstock underneath and the shade of ink. Glitter is a perfect add on to your card! - Sweet Kobylkin

  4. Isn't it cut out off white.. Wow.. It is so cool!! Your cards always are cleverly designed..I need to learn some tricks you share.

  5. Such a fun card, Jane! You are right, I seriously thought your sentiment was cut out of the white panel. Love the illusion.

  6. So cool, Jane. I still can't see how you cut out the happy! It really does look like it is cut out of the white.

  7. Looks great - that illusion had me fooled too, Jo x

  8. Hoping to enter this great challenge--absolutely love your card!

  9. Super card Jane - I also thought the 'happy' was cut out of the white base! The same thing happened with one of my die cut cards once and a commenter thought it may have been due to the lighting or camera angle - either way, I love the illusion on your card. Great design!

  10. Hi Jane, this is such a fabulous CAS card. I love the cute lil hat on the dimensional word die cut. Looks stunning. Btw, your card has got me looking for word dies by Winnie & Walter. hugs- Bharati

  11. Hello Jane, I adore how you placed the hat above your die-cut sentiment. =) Tracie
