Last Friday the Free For All Challenge at Splitcoaststampers was to create a card with negative die cut shapes. I had a lot of fun with it and created four cards!!! That is pretty amazing for me. Usually I get two cards done per day, tops. But I had so much fun, I just couldn’t stop.

For this card I started with a 3″ x 5″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock. The bottom corners were rounded and the Meadow Rue die was cut out in the center of the cardstock. The layer was adhered to a 3/16″ bigger piece of black cardstock and the edges were stitched.

The layers were adhered to the card base, 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Seasalt Canvas Bazzill cardstock, folded in half. A sentiment from Simonsaysstamp’s Handwritten Sentiment stamp set was stamped on a  7/8″ wide strip white cardstock with in Jet Black Archival ink. The right edge was cut banner style and a green button was tied on to the upper left side of the strip with Linen Thread. The sentiment strip was adhered to the card with foam adhesive squares. Three rhinestones from a Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
