I made two cards for this week's Make it Monday #157 DIY Coverplates. This is an interesting technique, but I have to say that I don't think I will ever complain that a $16 cover plate is too expensive. It's easy but error prone to try to do it yourself--at least in my experience.
I used Get to the Point dies for both of my cards. For my first card, I put a piece of patterned paper from Basic Gray Kneehighs under my die cut card stock. I got that idea from this gorgeous card made by Diana.
I added a sentiment to the inside, and the last remaining bit of that patterned paper.
I used Laurie's Card Hanger Die to attach the card to a gift bag.
My panel is cut along a diagonal at about the half way point. That is because there were some unmentionable things that happened at the top, and I didn't want to start over. I kind of like the partial look, though, and it gave me a good place to stamp my sentiment.
I am also going to link both of these up at Seize the Birthday. It's been far too long since I played over there.
