Die Cut Autumn Blessings Card

While it's still hot and humid, it is time to plan for Autumn projects. I love this new stamp set, Autumn Blessings and couldn't wait to use it on a card. 

I've been on a 'negative' die cut kick, and wanted to show how to use both parts of a die cut image. To make this card I eyeball measured and die cut an opening from the larger piece of patterned paper using the Chalkboard Backdrop die set. Then I die cut coordinating papers and used the positive pieces. On the smallest I stamped the greeting. I inked the edges of all the papers, inside the opening too.

Instead of flat and boring, I used 3D Foam Squares to lift all the papers. I used regular size on the largest piece, then layered the center die cuts with the Thin 3D Foam Squares. That gives me a 3 level effect, with the card base not only showing through, but looking like a frame. Pretty cool, huh?
And to top it all off, this card is super quick and easy to make!
Here's another angle so you can see the dimension -
