This design came to me as I was browsing my MFT dies to see what I might use. I came across the Sentiment strips and thought they would look awesome as a background design. You know what? They totally do!
My original thought was to cut a window out of the upper middle and have the strips on the front of the card and a sentiment on the inside showing through the window, but I quickly realized that wasn’t going to translate itself as well in reality as it did in my head. So that design got nixed. The Accent It Die-namics turned out to be perfect because they provide that sentiment without detracting from the interest of the strips.
What I love most about this design is it’s versatility. Change up the color of the glitter paper, and you’ve got a card for an entirely different event. Use black glitter paper and you’ve got a graduation card; use silver and you’ve got a wedding card; use gold and you’ve got a wedding or New Years card; pink or blue…hey, there, baby; need a birthday card? Pick a color. 😉
I will admit, assembling all the sentiment strips is a bit time consuming, but it has a fabulous impact, especially in person! I didn’t stamp anything on the inside because I wanted to keep this available for any event (gold seems to be trendy that way), but I did layer a full-mat of mint paper on the inside for an added level of interest and a fun little surprise.
