Dies R Us #200 ~ If the Hat Fits ...

Hello everyone and welcome to the last challenge at Dies R Us.  Yes, sadly you read that right, this is our 200th post and it will also be the last one as the Dies R Us challenges will be closing down.

Challenge #200 ~ Anything Goes
(as long as you use a die that is sold at Dies R Us)

For my last DT card, and with Halloween just around the corner, I made this cute and fun Halloween card.

Tutti Designs is one of my go-to brands when I'm in a time crunch.  They are so easy to use - normally just a little bit of paper piecing and voila you have a card 😀 This time I used the Witch Hat. I cut it out of black 3 times, twice out of green and once out of the orange and the purple. I used a piece of double sided tape on the back of each hat, so that it was easy to puzzle my paper piecing.  Once this was done, it was time to work on the background.  With the size and number of hats I wanted to use, a slimline card was just the ticket. I cut out the spider web background out of light grey cardstock so that it would stand out from the white but would not blend in with the black of the hats.

While paper piecing my hats, I did this one too.  It was pretty easy really, just swap the green and black cutouts and two hats were done simultaneously, the black and green for the front of the card, and the green and black for the inside of the card :-)  And that was it.  Second Halloween card done for 2022, a few more to go 👻

Now for the list of supplies used to make this card, each linked to the
Dies R Us store for your convenience.

  I must admit that although I'm sad posting this last post for Dies R Us, I'm very blessed to have been on this wonderful adventure for several years.  My very first post was in April 2017 on the Inspiration team!  I want to thank Dani, the owner of DRU,  for having me as part of the Dies R Us family for so long.   I would also like to thank Anne, my team leader, Darlene, my previous team leader, and all my teamies for the wonderful support, encouraging comments, and let's not forget all of the enabling 😀 I wish each one of you wonderful crafting opportunities in the future!
