For today’s blog hop I’ve created a card using the newly released Polish Papercuts 3D Die set. Wycinanki (vee-chee-non-kee) is the traditional Polish art of paper cut-outs, it became a popular folk craft in the mid 1800's. They featuring traditional motifs like flowers, leaves and animals (i.e. roosters) in bright colours and symmetrical patterns, but their styles vary by region of Poland. Each paper cut-out were hand made using sheep shears to form the designs and I’m so happy to have this beautiful die set that will make it so simple in making paper-cut designs!

For my card I decided to go for a modern kind of design. I used very simple colour combo and wanted to keep it without any sentiment.

For the sentiment I used a stamp from Label Love Stamp Set combined with two leaf silhouettes die-cuts from Leaf Clusters Die Set, with a touch of black splatters.
