Thank You for Stamp Ink Paper

This post has a sad ending for the card (check out the last paragraph of the post).

These were inspired by Stamp Ink Paper, I created this thank you card.  Two versions that I'm posting . . . positive images and negative of both the background and negative dies.

So first, created a watercolor background and die cut the background, saving all pieces.
Also die cut from white cardstock.

Then did ink to paper to create my sentiment (cut from a die).

Card one . . . the negative pieces of the watercolor piece inlaid into the positive piece of the white die.  (Am I making sense?)  The positive of the sentiment die (along with it's shadow piece). 

 The placement of the pieces back into the white die was like a puzzle.  1) fun . . . and 2) random!  I did not put them in their original space.  I also used a green background piece. 

My second card has the positive of the cover die, along with the negative pieces of the sentiment die. 

I did cut a second  shadow die for the sentiment. 

Card one gets my vote . . both for fun in the construction and the look of that amazing sentiment die.  

Thankfully I photographed them . . . before "the incident".  A 4-month old puppy ate the corners on both cards, rendering them garbage.  Keep those cards safe.
