You are Stronger than you think...

Hi, Alicia blogging today.  I created a card using the positive and negative of the die cut.  I love it when you can even use the scraps!  I did not use the actual paper but used the negative piece to create a stencil. First I covered the card base with blended inks.  Next I used the stencil to make a mountain shadow.  Then stamped the sentiment before adding the die cuts.

I used a couple of different specialty papers for the die cuts since the rest of my card was so simple.  Here's how I did it:
  1. Cut the pieces of the die out twice.  This die has two pieces which will make 4 total.
  2. Assemble two sets then cut one set to nestle behind the first set.
  3. Adhere the first set in your desired place.
  4. Adhere second set with pop dots for drama.

  2. I love using the negatives of die cuts as stencils, it makes me feel I'm getting double value from them. And they are perfect for creating reflections as you have done. Thank you for sharing at SOSS
