Positive & Negative: Get two card from one cut

Make the use of both the positive & the negative of your Cricut or die cuts & make two cards instead of one.

Saves you time as you have already cut out the word or image – so why not turn the other part into a quick card too!

The Negative
Well there really isn’t anything negative about this card – it just uses the negative space left behind in the card stock to make the card & I think it looks great.

The Positive
I am all about being positive & this card positively makes me happy.
It uses the part that you cut out for the card design. You can see that both cards look the similar –  they use the same materials but have a different look.

And there you have it two cards from one cut!
Saved some time in using the same materials, but still made slightly different cards.

To make these cards I done a wash of water all over the Watercolour Paper and used the CTMH Watercolour Paints over the top of the wet paper.

I done an ombre look using a light pink to purple colour. Once dry I cut out the happy from the Cricut® Artbooking Collection, added some thick twine which I pulled apart to make thin threads & some silver sequins.

The word Birthday is from the super cute M stamp Birthday Calligraphy. This has been stamped in black on white card & adhered with 3D foam tape to finish the cards off.
