I had so much fun creating these 2 cards using the Clicut retractable pen knife.
I'm not a big xacto knife fan because I find it hard to maneuver ... plus they just plain scare me!
But I absolutely love this tool! It is so easy and so much fun to use.
For my 1st card I cut several strips of turquoise cardstock (approx 1/2" wide) using the Clicut and the Acrylic ruler on the 14x14 mat.
I then ran them all through my handy paper crimper.
I adhered the first layer of turquoise cardstock strips flat (all going the same direction).
The second layer of strips (going the opposite direction) I adhered with some Imaginisce foam tape that I just cut up into smaller pieces.
Supplies used: Imaginisce (Monster Mash collection:papers, chipboard, foam tape, Clicut); Core'dinations Colorcore Cardstock, May Arts (ribbon), paper crimper
My 2nd card I used the Clicut to cut out parts of the patterned paper. I then pop dotted that purple patterned paper onto some yellow polka dot paper.
I also used the Clicut to cut out one of the bats from the patterned paper. (that required a bit of patience though. :))
