Happy Saturday! I have a couple of cards to share today. I am playing along with this month's Papertrey Ink's Create Along With Us Challenge. When I saw the collection of beautiful cards by Danielle used here, I just knew I had to try to recreate at least a couple of them.
First of all, I always like to recreate the "look" using what I have. I do not own the frame die Danielle used, but I do own the Fancy Pants coloring paper pack. I saw the packaging used to wrap around the papers and wondered if I could use those. I cut it down and die cut a stitched frame with both. They totally work! I love that they both have the frame detailing as well as the soft green/blue sponging inside the frame like Danielle's cards.
Next, I had to break out my PTI Doily Die (I must add a disclaimer here......I do not intentionally try to use my doily die on every card....it just seems that way). This die is serving two purposes. It is giving me the circular image like Danielle's center card. I love the way the apples and blossoms all create an intricate frame design. Plus, this die is covering up all of the Paper Pack packaging words. Win! Win! The gold was my idea! I just had to add some metallic!
Since I had two panels, I made two cards. I used a smokey shadow doily on this one. I only used a couple of the flower clusters and leaves on this one. If you look closely, you can see a few letters from the packaging peeking through the doily.
I die cut the "Celebrate Today" that is part of the Floral Pop Kit. I die cut it twice for added dimension. I used some foam tape to pop up the doily and flowers.
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
