3/15/21 Winner at QKR Stampede!
Hi everyone! Happy Monday to you! It’s the 1st, and you know what that means… lots of DT inspiration to feast your eyes upon! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! Our new challenge over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog is live this morning and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #47 – Inlaid Die Cut! Remember that all our challenges are Anything Goes with an optional technique twist each month to inspire you, and this month the twist is an inlaid die cut. I have to admit that this is one of my many favorite techniques, and I was SO in ‘Fall mode’ when I created this note card! Both stamp sets and the die set are from Prickley Pear Stamps!
I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base and a narrow front panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I die cut two maple leaves into the white front panel, layered it onto a slightly wider brown panel, and adhered the piece to the card base offsetting it to the left. I adhered small pieces of brown and orange foiled paper to a scrap of white cardstock, die cut a maple leaf from each color, and affixed them into the negative spaces on the front panel. I stamped the sentiment in the bottom right corner and added a few small red flat-back pearls.
I kept the inside clean as well, just adding a strip of leftover brown cardstock down the left side and a stamped maple leaf in the bottom left corner. As it is a note card, I left the inside blank with plenty of room to write a custom message.
And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! Just gorgeous!
