I needed to make a few more notecards and used the last snippets of my 49th and Market 'Vintage Artistry' paper pad.  

I had made another card with the top section of the paper, so used the Curved Border die to cut the largest shape possible from the remaining paper.  After die cutting, I embossed along the edge of the curved border.  I die cut 'hello' from the paper, setting the pieces to one side, before attaching the paper to the lower corner of the card blank.  I die cut 'hello' twice more from more snippets from the same pad - the papers have a coloured core so I wouldn't get a white edge when stacking the sentiment.  I inlaid one 'hello' together with the small snippets I had set aside before layering the other two sentiments.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 4" white matt card blank 
     Spellbinders Borderabilities 'A2 Curved Border' and Altenew 'Simply Hello' dies
     Kars tan embossing mat
     Snippets of 49th and Market 'Vintage Artistry in Blush' paper

What a lovely way to use up a snippet for the curved part of your card Kath. Works so well with the camouflaged sentiment as well. Good to be reminded of a techniques I've not used for a while.
