Make It Monday #96 - Patchwork Die-Cuts

It is a blustery, gloomy wet day here and I just don't have the desire to head out and work my way through my mile long list of errands. The forecast is better for tomorrow, so I decided to stay put and replenish my stash of thank you and birthday cards.

Melissa Phillips presented the tutorial and challenge at Capture the Moment this week, with a challenge to use up scraps and create patchwork die-cuts.

Most of my scraps right now are from Christmas & Holiday themed papers, but I was pleasantly surprised that, when I was done, this doesn't scream Christmas.

The papers are all from Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage line and die cut with the PTI Jar & Lid die. The three die cuts were stacked and then cut into 3 pieces. I shuffled the pieces around to reform the jar and then decided to use all three jars on the card.

I cut the Tiny Tags from the same kraft cardstock that makes the card base and then stamped three sentiments from the Mega Mixed Messages stamp set. These are tied to the jar with Martha Stewart green Baker's Twine.

The jars are sitting on a panel of Soft Stone cardstock die cut with the Edgers #2 die.

Thanks for stopping by,
