Onsie Die Card Bases

It's been a couple of days...of no crafting time.  Wednesday, I shopped at Sam's after work; came home, packed all that in, put all that away, fixed supper, eat and was ready to bed.  Thursday, I shopped at Wal-mart after work, price matched oodles of stuff; came home, had the Dale pack all that in (hee hee), put all that away, fixed supper, eat and then was ready for bed.  Friday, I'm off!  YAY.  And I woke up at 1 AM with my sinuses dripping clear fluid.  Ick.  That set the stage for a low key Friday at home.  Forget the WHB, I'm stamping.  All day long...and had a nap, too. 

Remember the day I went nuts with the onsie die?  Those are going to be card fronts.  One of the projects I worked on Friday was cutting card bases for those onsies die cut card fronts.

I cut up 12 x 12 Whisper White cardstock.  Not really a biggie for me, as I rarely scrap a page with a white base.  Notice on the die, there'a a row of dots?

Here's what it looks like before it goes in the Big Shot.  Notice the measurements - cut my 12 x 12 to 12 x 5.5.  I saved the 1 inch strip - I have a project for that 1 inch strip.  I'm sure these are not the most CS efficient measurements; however, these are what I used.  One onsie will have a Pear Pizzaz base.

Here's my pile of scraps; I have already used these up.  I'll share those projects in the next post.

So, now I have the unembellished card fronts cut and card bases cut.  Next up is embellishing the card fronts.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a moo'valous day!
