Stretch your Dies


No it isn't your eyes going funny, I had to straighten the card and this is the result but a bit rushed to change it now.
Since I thought I was having a free weekend I thought I would take the Stretch your Dies Class really as an experiment too. I really don't have patience watching someone take ages to make a card when I could be making one myself.
Actually they're not that bad and they even teaching this old dog a few new tricks like my fuzzy one which is using fun foam. Although after sticking the word a few times I purposely decided I had run out (I hadn't) and put the card together. Now if I need a white sentiment no more layering a couple of the diecuts just cut out in fun foam.

There was a second card but I didn't really have the type of word type that would work with this, well thats my excuse. But I did inlay this sentiment from Penny Black for the third card.
My cards are very similar to class ones since time is short this week now we are doing a flying visit to MIL but I had a hour to spare and foolishly thought I could make a couple of cards.
I shall miss the eclipse as well today, I shall either be in the car or in the leisure centre swimming at least I shall be able resist looking at it. Although the weathermen have confirmed that we will have too much cloud cover to see it now.

  14. Gorgeous cards. I used foam a few years ago and found that some makes of it will actually shrink. Just carefully heat with a gun, keeping it moving al the time. It does burn quite easy! Hugs, Carol S.xx
