Lawn Fawn Fun with Dies | Thank You Card

This little project grew wings and turned into several rebound cards, but lets start here!
The current challenge over at LawnFawnatics is "Fun with Dies", so I went through my stash and pulled all the non-stamp coordinating dies to see what I could pull together. I decided to make an inlay of all the different sizes in my Stitched Rectangle set with a nice sentiment in the middle.



I choose 4 different colors of cardstock, trimmed to 4.25x5.5 and started cutting rectangles out. I realized I'd be able to use the unused negative space to make additional cards, so I made sure to keep everything nice and centered even if it didn't need to be. I ended up with enough to make 3.75 backgrounds. One didn't survive so it got turned into something else (stay tuned).

After putting the puzzle of rectangles together, I used a piece of post-it tape across the whole thing to keep it together while flipping over for adhesive. I wanted a full coverage adhesive to ensure nothing was going to move, so I used a full width size of be creative tape.



I wanted my sentiment to really pop so I used 2 layers of cardstock + wow ultra high embossing powder. You could also use glossy accents, but I think you get a tad more dimension with the wow ultra high.
Note: I first tried wow ultra high white, and had horrible results. It does not emboss nearly as neat and clean as the clear version. 




The last card only got 3 colors after all the die cutting. I could've pulled out another sheet of paper, but I was enjoying how far I stretched 4 panels of cardstock. Instead I used a scrap of the lime green color for the sentiment instead of white, also embossed with wow ultra high, and then layered onto a white piece of cardstock slightly offset. I ended up getting a little crocked when putting together my die cuts on this one, so I just made everything wonky to make it look intentional (shhh, don't tell)

Until next time!
