Cherchez La Die Cut

This card is not quite as I planned it. I cut the WISH out on the Silhouette, intending to use the cut out letters. I put them back into the negative space to ink it and as I was inking my beach scene realised I might be able to get two cards out of it.

This card was made from the negative cut of the letters. I added a stamped sentiment (unknown brand) and Clearly Besotted  hibiscus flowers and leaves.

Then I went to make my other card with the die cut letters and guess what? The S is missing!!!! Honestly, I seem to spend half my life searching for die-cuts!

I'd like to enter:
Curtain Call hibiscus
Less is More  perfect holiday
Shopping Our Stash  relaxin
Stamp Ink Paper  travel

Thanks to Stamp Ink Paper for picking this card.

Oh, I know that feeling too well. I use press n seal now to hold my diecuts. ;)
You created a beautiful tropical beach scene here. The negative black wish looks fabulous against those colours. Thank you for joining us this week at Less is More. Trina :)

This is a brilliant card Marina, such a clever way to use both parts of your die cut - I visited your posts backwards!

A fabulous design idea, Marina. Love how you've framed the scene with the hibiscus flowers. I'm forever losing things, I found my mini MISTI stuck to the base of my pencils tin the other day...magnetic stash can be a nightmare! lol
