How is everyone doing ?? Are you all busy with preparations for Christmas or still basking in the beauty of Autumn ??
I am really enjoying myself doing both and believe me !!! It is so much fun creating these cards. CottageCutz has released some awesome Autumn theme dies that you can check here.
Today , I have a card for you where I have used a very innovative way to use negative of die cuts as stencils.
Here is my card .

To create this card, Cut a card A2 size that is 5.5 inches by 4.24 inches in white card stock.
Using the CottageCutz Feathers die, cut out the diecuts and use the negative of the die cuts as stencil to create a background. I have used the Distress inks Rusty Hinge, Spiced Marmalade, Peeled paint and Gathered Twigs.

Cut out a window frame from the CottageCutz Stitched Square die and distress with Espresso Distress ink. 

Cut out the feathers from the CottageCutz feathers die and colour them using the above colours. Tie together using a twine.
Stamp a Thank You sentiment and layer all the square dies together.

Products used from CottageCutz dies.
