I cut the sentiment with my Silhouette Cameo and instead of using the positive, I filled the negative space underneath with washi tape. I thought this silver washi tape with tiny stars was perfect.
Here is another making use of the negative, but on this card I ran the washi taped cardstock through my Cameo. This same technique can be done with dies or other electronic cutting machine. Since I was working with a striped pattern, I also took care to match up the stripes.
and here is my card...
By using the positive and the negative cuts for my cards, I was able to make several cards quickly. So if you are like me and don't want to fall off your friends and family Christmas card lists, it's not too late. Send a New Year's card instead.
Thanks for stopping by. Here's to a fabulous 2015!
