I made a card last week using the Papertrey Ink Hello Sunshine die to make a banner, so when I saw the Make It Monday challenge and video by Ashley Cannon Newell was to make a garland, I decided I wanted to play around with this die a little more.
A scrap of paper from the Authentique Lively pad was sitting on my desk, so I started by cutting 4 panels and folding the pointed end up to see how the pattern would look.
I really liked this, so ended up running a 1/8" strip of adhesive tape about 1/8th of an inch below the top of the triangle. I adhered a piece of thin ribbon along the top of each panel. A glue dot on the buttons is holding the tip of the triangle down.
Once I stamped my sentiment from the PTI Thanks All Ways stamp set and embossed the card base, I adhered the ribbon at the back of the panel. The garland pieces and ribbon are not adhered to the front of the embossed panel - they are hanging loose.
Another sentiment from the same set was stamped on a fifth die cut and adhered with dimensional foam adhesive to lift it above the base.
I wasn't really feeling the card was finished, so ran a thin line of Stickles along the garland pieces and the triangle sentiment die cut.
Because I like the way the triangle sentiment panel is pointing to the "thanks", I am also entering this card in the Moxie Fab World Movement Challenge.
Thanks for stopping by,
