AAA Cards Challenge #186: along the edge + Only diecuts, with video


AAA Cards Challenges this fortnight is  Along the edge and the optional twist was chosen by Lucie: use only diecuts.

For my card, or cards actually, I've used border dies from Carlijn Design (randwoorden feest) and Paper Rose (farm border 1).

My first card had too many layers in my opinion, so I deleted that footage and started again. I do show it in the video 4 layers is not as CAS as we'd like at AAA Cards.

So now I've started with a black cardbase and only the white panel as a layer. same size as my card, I diecut the Hoera from the top and the farm border from the bottom.

Not it's a negative, not like the first card, so you have a few options: leave it as is, place all

the little bits back beteen the legs and trees, or do what I did , use the white positive and shift it a little, so the black cardbase becomes the shadow, seemed towork for me.

For more information on the AAA Cards Challenge, or to play along , see this.


  1. Well I hadn't realised the black was the card base and the white the die cut. How impressive is that for a technique!

  2. Beautiful!! Love the idea: black card base with a with card! Well done

  3. Super stunning card, Maaike. I love the black and white combination.

  4. Very striking design. Love the die cut!

  5. Great card, Maaike! I love how you used a combination of positive and negative die cutting on the same card. So creative!

  6. Great card Maaike - fabulous technique!

  7. Thank you for the video and compliments on your excellent english. love the cards especially the one with an extra layer but your right CAS is becoming very "busy" and not at all CAS for some folks these days. x
