I needed a quick thank you type note card and I decided to do some inlay die cutting to give it a little more punch.
This really was quick and easy to make. Start off by cutting you circle from patterned paper and then die cut the sentiment, I used a die from Savvy Stamps, in the center of the circle. Be sure to save the little "extra" parts from the letters as you'll need to re-insert these later. You can save the actual "hello" for a different project. Die cut the sentiment again, this time from solid cardstock and insert it into the circle. Here is a trick I use to adhere those little pieces back into the "e", "l", and "o". I added regular tape to the back side of the circle, making sure that the open parts of the letters was covered with the tape. Then I turned it back over to the front side the adhesive from the tape will let you stick those little pieces in where they belong.
On the inside of the card, I die cut the Vest Card from Die-Versions out of the same patterned paper. I wanted it to look quilted, like a hunting vest would be. So I dry embossed it using the Die-Versions Diamonds Background die. I did the same technique to the front of the card as well.
Here is the vest opened. I added a small strip at the bottom inside of the vest so I could tuck my note inside (without having to worry that it would fall out in transit).
I also added a strip (read "scrap") of the same patterned paper to the envelope for a coordinated note card look :-).
