I haven't made any new cards recently because I haven't felt well. I'm not sick like with some evil contagion that will infect everyone around me. Instead I've been in a medically induced funk as the antibiotics I have to take for my recent dental work devour my intestines and perhaps even my very soul. Basically it isn't pleasant.
die inlay technique for the first time ever and started off with a ridiculous tree that was a lot of work? Right after that I made the card above using the same technique. It was a lot easier than the tree but still a bit of work as those parts are a bit fiddly over which hole they fit into and they have to be the proper direction.
After I made the black and white background I didn't really know what to do with it so I kept it simple with a giant black flower and a bit of fat ribbon. It is what it is. Needless to say I have an opposing background where the filled in parts are black and the lattice work is white. I don't know what the heck to do with that either so I'm sure it is lurking in some pile or box somewhere.
The Fine Print: Die by Taylored Expressions--quatrefoil cutting plate; A Muse Studio--clear green button and grass silky crush ribbon; DCWV--card base; and giant flower from my stash.
