Today's Daily SPS Inspiration with Cheryl: Card

Hello! This is Cheryl from Shestamps

This week’s challenge is to use X’s and O’s in your creations. Denine further challenged the DT to see what we could make with the focus on designer paper and only use stamps for sentiments. This idea popped into my head immediately. (Gosh, I love when that happens!)




On the back side of my top layer, I measured and marked where I wanted the die cuts. Although I used metal dies, you could do the same thing with your die cutting machine. The pieces of designer paper are adhered to the back side of the white piece so it shows through the negative spaces. I think there are so many possibilities to this design. You could use other words or shapes to fit any occasion. I finished off my card with stitching because, well, I almost always use stitching. I couldn’t resist adding some coordinating bakers twine.


I hope you will join our X’s & O’s challenge. You can find all the challenge details and link up your project here.
