I’ve been saving this card for the right challenge and the tic-tac-toe is the perfect one to upload it to. It fits the middle line straight across in every way.
As some of you know I was on a kick recently of making this style of card using a SSS stamp and die set I had bought and loved. This is actually the very first one I made and part of it came about by that happy accident of thinking – What If… I used a white card base and a silver panel cut slightly smaller. The plan was to die cut the corner and put something behind it, but instead – the what if I tried – happened. I glued the smaller piece to the card base, placed the die in the position I wanted it and then ran it through the big shot with an embossing sandwich instead of cutting. Because it was quite thick the impression came out as you see in the photo and I even had it showing on the backside too. I loved it. I had already stamped, coloured and die cut the leaves as you see here using Distress Oxides very lightly in the different hues. After gluing this piece I stamped the sentiment, adhered it and added one pink pearl.
