Masculine Card

Hello peeps,

Finally i am back in blogland...No post for more than a month due to busy schedule and then the bad was completely away from craftng...but i did some crafting yesterday night and made a card and can you imagine how much did i took to complete it??????? Four u r not crafting for a long time , this is the result..

Now something about the card..Well for the first time i have used my Sizzix Bigshot in a card...the center scallop circle and scallop border is cut using spellbinders die...and the red star is embossed uisng cuttlebug embossing folder..the center of the scallop circle is cut using circle cutter..i am using this circle cutter after a year of it's purchase...i don't know y i didn't used it for work's so great with thick sheets..Now you will more often see die cuts in my projects and cards. I will share my latest purchases during this non- crafting time in my next post..

    This card is very 4th of July to me ..very neat and simple and yet so elegant.
    I have a Big Shot too..but all I have for dies is just leaves and labels :( coz I was dumb enough to not purchase sets of lacey and scallop shapes :|
