Online Card Class - Day 2

Hi everyone ~
Today was Day 2 for Online Card Classes CAS 3, and once again, it was difficult to decide which technique to play with. I finally decided to try Heather Campbell’s card tutorial, featuring in-laid die cutting, and I have to say, I really enjoyed it!




 Heather used triangles for her geometric element, and I chose my Avery Elle Rounded Diamonds. I also added silver foil cardstock for one diamond, and black Shape N’ Tape across the bottom border. And...no stamping! None. Zero. Zip!!!

Well, that’s it for me...Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I really appreciate your sweet comments!


Supplies:
Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink - Soft Stone, Aqua Mist; Bazzill - Icy Mint
Shape N’ Tape: Lifestyle Crafts
Dies: Paper Smooches - Quote Tag; Avery Elle - Rounded Diamonds
Sequins: Kelly Purkey - Silver Metallic

It feels odd to make a card with no stamping, doesn't it? :-) This is great, Barb!

I used triangles, too, and found it most difficult to overlay. You did a fantastic job with this!
