Good morning!! It's Lisa again, this time with an Alice In Wonderland themed square card. I don't make a ton of square cards because they require extra postage, but every now and then I have a die that just screams "square card" and this Yvonne Creations Playing Cards Frame die definitely fits that category.
Since I had to wait for the ink to dry, I started by stamping the image on a 4" x 6" piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb cardstock. While that set, I cut the frame once out of black cardstock and once out of silver shimmer text weight cardstock. I put adhesive sheets on the back of the cardstock before cutting it so I could easily layer and attach them to the card.
See those negative space pieces in the top left corner? Since they have adhesive on them, I'll save them to cut sentiments and other small die cuts out of for future projects.
At this point, I decided that I wanted the frame to be more dimensional, so I wanted to cut three more layers of black cardstock to build up. But since my inked background would need to dry, I went back to my stamped panel to ink it first.
