Another Take on Using a Large Die (20% Off)

Hello friends!

I am coming back with another post about using a LARGE die. 
Yesterday's post was about using the word "you".

This time, I am sharing a card with the large word Mega "happy" Die.

 Do not let the size of the Mega Happy Word Die intimidate you.

All you need to do is make a die cut and complete your sentiment.
The next step is use an image of your choice to go with the theme or sentiment.

I started out with the "A Walk in the Woods" Background and stamped a floral design based on the colors of the sentiment.

I then used the die as the stencil and used a fine black pen to trace part of the alphabet. I also popped up some of the die cut pieces back to the word "happy".

I always look for ways to create in unique ways. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't.
Today's card is one of those! There is no right or wrong... just different. 😀
 I hope that you remember that when you think your work is not as good or expected.
Allow yourself to try something different and just PLAY. You will be happy--guaranteed!
