Sometimes you can just let a nice patterned paper do all the work! For this card, I just sliced a gap toward the bottom of a piece of patterned paper (that I had cut down to 5 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches), slapped a sentiment in the gap (after partially die cutting some parts of the paper) and mounted everything onto a card base.
I die cut the patterned paper and stamped the sentiment on the white card base so it would fit perfectly between the two pieces of the patterned paper that I cut apart, then added a layer of vellum on top of the stamped sentiment. The vellum on top helps to diffuse the lines of the stamp a bit – and I just like how it looks. I used a little heart embellishment and a sentiment sticker from the Cirque Card kit to finish off the card.
