and CUT!!!

***Stop Press***
We have a winner for the Circle of Friends Giveaway. From all the fabulous entries we used a random picker and the name out of the digital hat was...
Rosie!

Congratulations Rosie, can you let one of the design team have your address please.

We've all loved looking at all your beribboned cards for Christmas and how you've cooked up the Little Extra Recipe. As for who's won the luscious ribbon giveaway, we're going to keep you in suspense a little longer!
This week its Tracie setting the dare and it is to make a card
and CUT!

Any theme goes, so for those of you needing a break from Christmas crafting this is the perfect opportunity to have a change. All styles are welcome but there MUST be an element of handcutting somewhere. It could be a greeting, a shape, letters printed on your pc and handcut, anything goes as long as you did it by hand.

When you've finished your card leave a comment with a link to your blog post and we'll come and see. You can also take part even if you dont have a blog by emailing a photo or scan to daringcardmakers@hotmail.co.uk and we'll add it to our gallery. The design team, as always have a fantastic array of cards to get the inspiration flowing.

Some great cards on here. I had to make my card for a commission, and it qualifies as the embossed shapes are cut out by hand, as is the pop out in the middle.
