Whoopie! A lie in tomorrow and I'm sooooooo looking forward to it. Why is it that I drag myself out of bed when the alarm goes off at 6.35 (those extra 5 minutes are very important) and yet on Sunday I was wide awake at 6.30?
I seem to be favouring the very simple card making with dies at the moment (nothing to do with them being quick and easy, honest) and one of the forums alerted me to the fact there are a lot of very cheap dies being listed on eBay by middle eastern sellers. The prices have started to increase as the word is spreading, but there are still a lot of bargains out there. If you look in the Cardmaking and scrapbooking category and then look in the die cutters sub category, you'll find them. So far I've received 6 of the ones I've ordered and only one hasn't cut properly (there's a section on the edge about 1cm long that doesn't quite cut but can easily be snipped with a pair of sharp scissors).
I made today's 5x7 card using one of these cheap dies. It cut perfectly and has a seperate cutting edge so you can leave the design in the cardstock if you wish. It cost me £3.49 with free delivery!
I simply added a mat of black card behind it before adhering it to the card with foam tape and stamping the sentiment. Simples! Hope you all have a great evening x
