WOW… Easter was yesterday and I hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful day with family, friends, church services or however you celebrate Easter.

For my POTW (Project of the Week) I choose to do a very simple, easy, and FUN project that I call embedded faux chip board. I used Repeat Impressions stamps listed below:

10203-D Leaf Cluster Outline
10205-E Flower Cluster Outline
10206-E Flower Cluster Detail
10207-E Flower Cluster Solid

For my Supplies I used a word die, white cardstock cut at 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2, the above listed stamps, Tombow multipurpose liquid glue, a piece of Kraft cardstock, sequins, and inks of your choice.

Die Cut your word out of the upper center of the white cardstock as well as 5 individual die cuts out of the Kraft cardstock.

Next step is to glue all 5 DREAM die cuts together making sure they line up, using liquid glue of your choice.

I then began stamping my images of the flower clusters and leaves randomly on the white cardstock. I used three different colors of purples.

Then add liquid glue to the back of your stack of 5 dreams glued together and with the card front facing up place the stack of die cuts through the negative space on the white cardstock. It may be just a bit snug but it will slip right into the negative space. Looks like chipboard without the weight.

I thought it needed some bling so I choose to add some random sequins.

Finished Card:

Enjoy and find different dies and Repeat Impressions images that will work beautifully together.
