Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge Guest Designer
Hey everyone! I'm guesting over at the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week.
I was actually quite challenged by the board. It seemed like in every row there were two spaces where I had a good idea, but then the third item threw me for a loop.
I finally decided to go with the bottom row: inlaid design, monochromatic, and scalloped border.
I used some scalloped border dies from MFT to create an inlaid piece that was then trimmed it down to create the panel you see. I then used that gorgeous Branching Out die from PTI as a focal point over the panel.
To soften the transition between the scalloped panel and the card base, I added a vellum fishtail banner which was turned into a tag. Some Lawn Trimming twine added extra texture and interest.
The Branching Out die was attached to the scalloped panel using my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher. I like the movement you get in delicate die cuts when you don't adhere the whole thing. A little extra stability/adhesion was provided by the foam tape I used to attach the sentiment strip. The sentiment is from my Dala Horse set for Neat & Tangled.
Please stop by the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge blog to see the whole board as well as inspiration from the Design Team. Hope you will play along too, there are prizes!
