Emphasize the Negative

The 2nd challenge this week that Cath at Moxie Fab World has given us is called "The Emphasize the Negative" challenge: using the negatives left behind after die-cutting.  In keeping with my bunny theme for our grandkids that I started earlier this week, here's what I came up with:

MFW Emphasize the Negative

I used my MFT By the Letters alphabet dies to go along with the bunny stamp I used on Tuesday ('Sweet Bunny" from Michael's).  I spelled out "bunny" on a paper from Doodlebug Designs Hello Spring, then popped it above a frame of green, and added it to my embossed card (Sizzix flower folder) along with my bunny which I also popped up.

Of course I had to use the diecuts, so here is the card that I used them on:

for Liam

Both of these cards are cut down from an A2 card to about 3 1/2" tall, since they're going to little people, I wanted them to be little, too.


I'd also like to enter my card into the Die-Cut Diva's Anything Green challenge.  Thanks for visiting today!

  16. Just adorable. I love the use of the negative die-cut panel. THe carrot paper die=cut looks great against the green print behind it.

    I like the way the bunny with the arrows looks like he's in the spotlight.

    Cuteness reigns. So glad you shared your talent with us.
