CC Designs at Bizzy Becs

Hi guys, back again with another creation for you all.
I wanted to ink up this gorgeous Swiss Pixie Stamp that I got from Bizzy Bec. Bec currently has 35% off CC Designs Stamps, click the link from the Store Home Page or in the left sidebar. I didn't actually see this sweetie there, so contact Bec to see if she can get her in for you.

I don't have any large dies so I made my die cut shape by first cutting a scrap piece of paper to the same size as my card. The I folded it in half, then half again. Then fold that square into a triangle shape, keeping all the folds on the same side. I just drew up a little diagram so you can see what I'm talking about!!

I actually drew around the edge of my DP with a black marker rather than matting it.. added some faux stitching, never seem to think to add it to my cards, and I love the result! Would be lovely to own a REAL sewing machine. So I did the same around my image, which matched perfectly with the stitched ribbon I got from Bec's yonks ago!!

Enjoy your weekend  - Loz ♥
