Cut That Out!

Recently, Diane Zechman made a birthday card for a friend that featured 10650J Cut That Out (by artist Ronnie Walter):


This saying just cracks me up, and it's great for sending to those who don't mind a bit of edgy humor! Diane and her friends call themselves “The Gigglers” for a reason, which is clearly reflected in today's project.

Diane, who was our Inky Guest Designer in September, stamped the sentiment and a coordinating image on a panel that was colored, die cut, layered, and then embellished to make it extra pretty:


If you look closely, you may be able to see how she traced over the words "you," "I," and "me" with a light pink marker to give them added emphasis.

Here's a larger view of the image, which is called 10570E Thinking A Bit (also by Ronnie Walter, from her delightfully witty My Friend Ronnie collection):


Diane placed her decorated panel on a card with some lovely patterned papers on a matching base:


But this isn't just a fun "regular" card...there is an extra element that makes it even better. The sides pull out to reveal a pop of yellow, and the folded parts also allow the project to stand up on its own:


The design is called a Modified Tri-Shutter card, and we love the unique interactive feature. Thanks to Diane for sharing her wonderful card with us. This talented lady is definitely young at heart!
