Textured Die Cuts with Avery Elle

Hellooooo!  Do you have time for 2 quickie CAS cards?  Today, I've got 2 cards that I made with the Avery Elle Set Woodgrain & More!  This stamp set has some large background stamps that are just perfect when you need a little bit of texture.  In my case, I'm using the sets to texturize some alpha die cuts.  

For my first card, I die cut a rounded panel using my Custom Panels dies.  Then I die cut the word "HELLO" with my Avery's Alpha dies just along the edge of the curve.  I went back in and inlaid letters that I cut out yellow card stock stamped with the woodgrain stamp.  The rounded panel is up on foam tape and that makes the letters just hover.  


I did the same technique with an angled panel and the crosshatch stamp.  


Here's a closer look at the hovering letters:)  Very fun!


Until next time!  Hope you're having a great week!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj
