Dotted Banner Background with Avery Elle

Hello, hello, hello!  It's Thursday and that means I'm sharing my weekly Avery Elle project:)  Today I've got a super CAS card made with the new Dotted dies set!  This card is kind of a take on the inlaid die technique.  All of the die cuts are the same layer, just pieced together.  This card was made with just one of the banner dies in the set.  The tail ends just happen to fit perfectly together!

I thought about doing a rainbow version, but I thought I'd go subtle with a pure white background.  Maybe it's the heat of summer that makes me want to go cool white:)  Plus the white really makes the subtle texture of the dots stand out.  (I just now realized that I probably should have shot this card against a colored background.  Sorry that it looks so washed out!)


The totally white background is offset by the sentiment that I die cut with the Simply Said: Hello die in the new Avery Elle patterned paper (Brights collection).  Have you tried the new paper yet?  The patterns are so adorable and the classic patterns go with everything.  And I love that the paper is double-sided in two different colors!



That's all for me today!  Until next time!  Thanks so much for stopping in!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj

  14. I am so sorry I've gotten behind on your posts...I've missed so much!
    This is such a fabulous design, JJ! I love how you lined the dies up so perfectly, and the die cut sentiment is so pretty! It makes me want to take out my dies and try to see them differently :-)
    Thanks so much for sharing this with us!
