A Snowman Get Well

Welcome Back Dies R Us Fans!
Darlene here with a wintertime Get Well card for you using a POSITIVE cut and a NEGATIVE cut with my dies today.

How adorable is this Sweet Dixie Snowman.  By simply die cutting him out of white card stock and adhering him to a piece of black card stock, I simply used my holiday colored Stickles to 'fill in the blanks'.  So festive and cute!

For my sentiment, I decided not to waste the negative portion of the black card stock panel I had used to cut the words out for a different card creation so by making sure I kept the little pieces that came out of the original cut of this Elizabeth Craft Get Well Soon die (pieces from the 'e and o') I was able to create this sentiment panel.  

Of course the one I used here on my card, was done a few days back so I QUICKLY [5 minutes or so] did another one so I could do a little photo tutorial for you.  You can use this technique with so many of your die cuts!  Give it a try!  This is also a great way to use up some of those scraps you have laying around!!

STEP 1:  Die cut your words using a scrap piece of card stock.

 STEP 2:  Cut your die cut panel to the desired size.

 STEP 3:  Mat your original cut panel onto a contrasting color piece of card stock.

STEP 4:  Remove your words from the die CAREFULLY saving the little pieces that are in the letters (in this case) E and O.

STEP 5:  With a tiny dab of white glue, adhere the letter centers into your negative panel ... hence creating a SECOND sentiment panel from ONE die cut!!  YAY!!

I hope you've found a bit of inspiration in my card today and if you've never used this technique ... give it a try and come share it with us!!  We'd love to see it!
