I'm on a Cameo kick, as you probably noticed... I've been experimenting with different kinds of cardstock and often wasn't happy with the results. The cardstock I use and love most (PTI, SU) is not very Cameo friendly - it cuts alright, but often not clean enough.
So I remembered this morning, about the "Cut Mates" packs of assorted cardstock from World Win Papers, that were hiding in a place I don't look in often enough... They claim on the package that Cut-Mates cuts like buttah... and let me tell you, they couldn't be more accurate! I love this stuff.
All in all, I decided to cut some, and out came this card:
The pinwheels and "wish" wording are cut files.
I combined them with assorted stamps; the jar from Waltzingmouse (Candy Jar Christmas Fillers), the sentiment and woodgrain background from PTI (Mega Mixed Messages, Background Basics: Woodgrain).
The background was stamped in Pumice Stone Distress Ink on PTI Fine Linen CS. I cut a PTI Half & Half border, from SU Soft Suede.
Here's a tip on 'closing' the Waltzingmouse jar - ink again only the upper lid part and stamp upside down, so that the ends meet.
Here's the challenge I designed this one for: (I had so much fun with these colours)
