Just Us Girls Challenge #553~Trend Week (Cut into Thirds)...Halloween Slimline Trio

Hello,

Welcome to Just Us Girls Challenge #553 where, for this week's trend, our lovely hostess, Nancy, is inviting us to cut our cards into thirds.  Such fun, especially when you can use thirds in so many different ways.



Once again, we're delighted to have Lindsey joining us with a most 'spooktacular' thirds card! I'm sure you'll enjoy gazing at and admiring her clever card, as well as all the fabulous creations by the rest of the team: Sue, Angie, Vicki, Ina, Bobby, Nancy, Lisa, Maria and Cécile. If you have a chance to leave comments, that would be a real treat.

Given that I am completely incapable of cutting anything straight, I resorted to using slimline and edge dies for some much needed guidance. I cut three full panels from Simple Stories Halloween patterned papers, taped them together and, using the angle edge die, cut all three at once. I adhered each piece onto a plain cardstock backing and ta dahhhh...three Halloween cards done! A few of the stickers/ephemera from the same set rounded out the theme.  I may become a real fan of this trend, especially given that it's so easy to create 'three-fers'!






That's it from me! Looking forward to seeing your cut-into-thirds trend in the gallery!

Thank you for dropping by!
