Fun with dies
I recently got this new leafy branch die from Papertrey. I just love it and wanted to use it right away. I've paired it with my Graduated Stripes cover plate. It's got just the right amount of structure/texture to soften the background.
I die cut the branch from the top and bottom of the coverplate as well as from some black cardstock and then did some fancy inlay. I trimmed it down a bit and then added a simple sentiment from PTI's Choose Joy stamp set. I have to say that I really love the sentiments in this set and it's turning into a go-to set for me.
I had considered using a sentiment die, but I felt like they were competing with the background and I like the clean/flat look of the overall card.
We're off to Connecticut this weekend to check out my new niece and spend some time with my college roommate and her family.
Next week is release week at Neat & Tangled! I've got some fun stuff in this release that I can't wait to share with you guys!
Have a great weekend!
