Live and Giveaway!

2016 has been a tough year.  There's been a few losses this year and that's inspired this simple card.  I had found this Momenta clock die on clearance - when I went to glue my clock on I realized why.  The die is backwards!  Haha - the clock numbers were in the wrong direction - easy fix - just flip the die cut over.  The edges of the die cut won't be curved downward  but I think that's only something that would bother a few of us with OCD tendencies.  

The background was sponged with white opaque Staz-On ink and a Memory Box Mesh stencil.

The Live die was used with silver craft metal sheet and popped up by cutting the same die on black foam.  This ensured that the whole letter would be popped up evenly.

P.S.  I did put the clock slightly rotated on purpose- since the LIVE die is on an angle also. But the effect is kind of lost when you try to rotate a circle! Haha!
