Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge



I dug into my snippets box and came up with the elements to make this card. The SU! birthday sentiment was previously stamped and cut with a SB labels 25 die and waiting to be used. I found a scrap of beautiful turquoise colored cardstock, so I cut 4 panels of it with a MFT horizontal stitched strip, then aligned them up side by side into a CB birthday embossing folder. I added a snippet of ribbon to the first panel, then added the die-cut Sweet'n Sassy border to the bottom. The white border was previously cut and I had just enough turquoise cardstock left to cut another border, swapping the negatives to coordinate everything together. The final touch was to add 3 tiny turquoise gemstones from my stash.

I'm entering this into the Repeat Impressions F1418 challenge which is the following tic-tac-toe grid...


I used the left vertical line to make my card.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Monday.

Love your card - it is so striking with the bold teal and white. The gingham ribbon tied around one side is so sweet!

Another stunning use of your scraps carol!! Love so much the embossed panels, this is a great idea to use snippets of colored cardstock! I have to try this... Fab colors and love the border too! Another great way to match pieces and create a coordinate design! Very well done!
Happy Monday!

Oh my, I love the colors of this birthday card Carol! What a cute idea to die cut strips and emboss them, loving that look. I also love that border strip as well, so happy you had enough of the turquoise paper to cut a second one and could use the "extra's" to fill in the white one. Looks so beautiful! Hugs, Brenda

I love it. What a great idea to split up the embossed panel that way. Your card is awesome.

Not sure when you scooted this card in on me, but it is just lovely! Love that bottom border with the touch of therapy work. Nice job!
