Vellum Sentiment Strip challenge

Hello paper artists!

I hadn't participated in a challenge in oh so long that I thought I'd give it a try.  Here's a card I made for Make it Monday #2 - Vellum Sentiment Strip challenge at Paper Trey Ink:

 Here are a few tips to consider:

-for the vellum sentiment frame (strip), I used the Scor-Pal to score my lines.  I scored 3 horizontal lines on top of and below the sentiment.  Then I scored 3 vertical lines on the left and right hand side of the sentiment. Notice how the scored lines criss-cross at the corners giving it a more substantial frame look.

-for the 3 hands, after cutting them out from the die, I stamped the hand image just slightly off to the left  to leave a little white space and giving it a natural layered look (since I didn't want to cut brown paper to layer behind the hands and then cut around it to give it dimension...we're always looking for the easy way out, huh?)

-for the brown-dotted corners, I simply stamped two of the hand images and cut a rectangle shape from the fingers area.  I then cut that rectangle in half....and there you have two card corners.

Hope you enjoyed this.  Thanks much for visiting !
