Here is a card made with the scraps on my desk from a couple of recent die cutting sessions. The dies here are from Memory Box. the trees are from a two part die, where there is a solid back layer and an outline top layer. Often to achieve this look with a single die, one has to inlay the centre part and stack the outline in order to get the relief effect. This one is really easy to do. I embossed the black section with a dotted chevron embossing folder from Cuttlebug.
The front panel was perforated with a star border die, also I believe from Memory Box.
When adding sentiments, I think it's important to consider a few things.
  • The message you want to convey
  • The position it's going to take in the general design
  • The style of font to complement the image
  • The weight of the lettering
  • The colour
I spend a long time messing about with dies and/or sentiment stamps in order to be satisfied that whatever I choose, the final composition will be balanced, co-ordinated and pleasing to the eye.
