Confucius Says…

Confucius Says

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” This wonderful sentiment is one of the stamps in the Asian Artistry level 2 hostess set. I created this monochromatic card because I was inspired by the sketch in this month’s WICKED demo challenge on SCS, hosted by Joanne Travis (AKA sleepyinseattle).

The Soft Suede patterned papers are from the Thoroughly Modern DSP package, and I used the new Lattice die-cut on top of the 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ square. The mat for the the sentiment was created with the Punch Windows Movers & Shapers die. I did some piercing along the edges of the Kraft card and in two corners of the image panel. It’s great to finally have a separate paper-piercing tool available in the catalog!

Thanks for stopping by!

    This is w/o a doubt one of the prettiest monochromatic cards. Love the DP and the amazing look achieved by adding the lattice die!

    Wow, neat card. I didn’t think the lattice die looked that cool in the catalog, but I love it on the card. How do you like the mover and shapers dies? Did it cut both layers?

    The movers & shapers die was used the create the mat for the sentiment tag, which was punched with the Modern Label punch.
