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!
