Thank You + CASE Study #154 Take Two + CAS(E) This Sketch! #42

Before I get to the cards for today, I just want to say a huge "thank you" for all the kind & supportive comments on yesterday's post here and over at Moxie Fab World - I get so much inspiration (and more than the occasional laugh) from all of you. Paper craft bloggers are simply the best!

I wanted to play around a little more with inlay die cuts, so have another card inspired by the August muse at CASE Study Challenge, Jennifer McGuire. You can check out the inspiration card and join in on the challenge here.

First I made a panel from 1/4" cardstock strips and die cut a fishtail flag from the lower right side. I then die cut the word "hello" out of the flag.

I repeated the same steps with a panel of Smoky Shadow cardstock.

The dark flag is inlaid into the negative space of the striped panel and then the striped word into the flag.

A second card was created with the leftover pieces. I did have the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch #42 in mind as I created this card - you can find details of their challenge here.

I like that I end up with a flat, easy to mail card. Even though it is flat, there is a neat texture where the pieces are inlaid.

Thanks for stopping by,
