This first card uses the same "HUGS" die that Laura used, along with a Spellbinders label die to create the bigger opening. I inked the card base and selectively stamped part of a sentiment from Thank You Kindly Stamp set.
Before I adhered the dark gray panel to the card base I decided to cut a channel with a Building Block die to nest in a line of buttons. This card is also being linked to Virginia's View Challenge #14: Layers & Dimension and The Challenge #28: Anything Goes in celebration of their one year anniversary.
This second card is inspired by Kristie Goulet's card as the Muse #111.
I played around with another attempt at the double partial die cut technique on this card. This was a bit trickier to pull off until I remembered I had a smaller On the Edge cutting plate which made it easy to partially cut the tree die to one side of the panel and the oval after.
The card base is inked to create a sunset/sunrise (you decide) and the sentiment is stamped and heat embossed before the panel is adhered with foam squares.
Thanks for stopping by,
