I'm popping between loads of laundry to post a couple of cards. This first one is for Runway Inspired Challenge #51.
I took my inspiration from the color palette and the thin lines (belt, black edging) on the outfit.
The "happy" die is partially inset in the blue panel. To keep the part of the word not inset on the same plane, I cut the word a second time out of white cardstock and layered it under the red die cut.
The black ink on the stamped part of the sentiment balances the black edge on the blue panel. A few sequins are a festive finish to the card.
This second card is being entered in the CASology Week 78: Dot challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge to Emboss It.
This idea came to me quickly, and was just as quick to execute. I cut the circle (dot?) in the kraft panel first, then progressively smaller circles in scrap paper. Once I adhered the panel together, I marked the card base and stamped the sentiment.
A favorite Cuttlebug chevron dots embossing folder provides the more dots for the challenge and fun texture to the card.
Thanks for stopping by,
