Pinked Square - Brown with Green and Cream

A monochromatic feeling, with a variety of greens, browns, and cream.   All the angles and dots (embossed, printed, and die cut) keep the eye moving, but there's a resting place with the cream banner and its simple script sentiment.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) prairie grass (green), cocoa bean (brown), and vintage cream.
  • Patterned paper is the bitty dot print from PTI fine linen (tan) pattern pack (tone-on-tone prints - retired) and a print from PTI turning a new leaf 8 x 8" pad (retired).
  • Embossing folder is Lifestyle Crafts diamonds and dots.
  • Dies are from PTI double-ended banners and mix & mat: pinked edge.  
  • Techinique:  The pinked edge die is a rectangle, and I cut it twice to make my square.  Starting with a square piece of card stock (3-3/8"), it was easy to cut once, very close to the edge of the card stock, then align the die from the other end (the pinked edge locks into place easily), and cut again for a 3-5/16" finished pinked square.  Cutting that close to the edge of the card stock, the die might want to slide off, so I held it in place with Post-it tape for both cuts.
  • The sentiment "with sympathy" is from PTI keep it simple: sympathy, stamped with PTI cocoa bean ink cube.
