|PTI's 10th Anniversary Celebration: Past, Present & Future 2007|
Well, I've come a long way since then baby! I have tons of scraps, partially-cut cardstock, images I've stamped...and...even thrown away! I know...incredible, right? The card above was inspired by Joyful Creations with Kim. What a beautiful card she made! I love the wood grain, embossed cardstock and the bouquet of flowers peeking through the frame. What a masterful creation!
|Close Up: Mat Stack Die 3, Stamps & Harlequin Coverplate Die|
I tried to capture the same feel using wood grain patterned paper that I picked up at a locally-owned scrapbook store. I'm sorry, but I do not remember the brand or name. Next I layered some scrap, cotton lace I had in my stash and then stacked a die-cut background using PTI's Harlequin Cover plate Die. Then I cut out the focal point using Mat Stack Die #3 and stamps from the same set. I used Pale Peony for the pattern and sentiment. Finally, I cut a 1.75" circle and sponged more Pale Peony around the edges. Using some of the smaller stamps from Garden Grace, I created my own flower scene. I think this is a pretty okay card, and I think I'll send it to a friend who is feeling under the weather today!
Thank you for stopping by!
