Through the Round Window

Oooo it was my turn to set the Dare this week and it was so nervewracking, not helped by the fact my Mojo upped and left midweek, argh! Anyway with a bit playing it came back and this is what I came up with for my own dareI made the window with the Big Shot using the cuttlebug star die, which cuts out loads of nested funky stars, Cuttlebug dies also seem to cut through quite a bit more than other thin cuts, it went through 2 layers of card with thick paper on top, impressed! The paper is from HOTP citrus pack, and the funky lettering is my new favourite Alpha, QK Sunshine. I hope you enjoy this dare and I cant wait to see what you do. Meanwhile if you fancy a bit of reminiscing about the windows on Playschool the BBC have a few clips to watch !

Happy cardmaking!

This is brilliant Rhi!

Love the star cut-outs - do the cuttlebug ones work with the sidekick, do you know?

Great dare - I had the coolywobbles when I first read it, but I really enjoyed doing it in the end

Rhi said...

Yep the cuttlebug dies work in the sidekick/ tagalong, only the 2x2 ones though, the 3 inch one I used here wouldn't fit.

Kathy said...

ooooh that's interesting!!! I'm always on the look out for different ranges of dies I can use in the gadgets I already got!
