Cara's 13th birthday - thankfully not hand-cut

I haven't had much crafty time lately, but my big girl officially reaching her teen years resulted in this fun & different creation for her.
 Now you might be thinking "she's a whizz at cutting out" or "she's just crazy"but no - to the cutting out anyway. I was lucky to receive an electronic cutter for Christmas so I used its design program to create & cut out the framed text (in red). I think the font is CK Typist (an old Creating Keepsakes font), which created a fun, irregular look. The cutout frame is mounted onto the striped dsp panel with dimensionals (adding the dimensionals took longer than cutting the whole piece since the text was so thin). Some glittery punched hearts & it was done. The finished card front  is a half A4 sheet, in case you're wondering. Here's another pic - not sure if you can see the raised red panel better here.
I know this isn't a stampy creation like you're used to seeing here, but I was really pleased at my first play with text & frames & wanted to share. I promise I'll be back next time with some stamping goodness.
Until then, thanks for hanging in there with my lack of posts.
Inky wishes, Di
