Hi folks! Wow what a gorgeous day we are having today. The sun is shining and it's t-shirt weather again... big smiles all round :o) I made this card using stamps from the House Mouse Designs Autumn collection, from the plate called 'Leaves'.
The cute image reminded me of a lattice frame shape that I have on my Cricut Gypsy. I die cut one in brown card to use in the background over some Provocraft patterned paper (have had this stack in my stash for years!) I stamped the image and coloured it in with Prismacolour pencils and Sansodor. I then carefully cut the image out with a craft knife. I measured and cut a gold frame for the image.... with a good old fashioned ruler and craft knife. I tied three brown sheer ribbon knots to the frame before adhering to the background with foam tape to add dimension. The flowers are by Prima and I added gems to the centres. The leaves are punched using a Martha Stewart punch.
I had a small strip of the backing paper left so I thought I would put it to good use inside the card. I cut the leaf on my Cricut; the stamped sentiment is also from the 'Leaves' stamp plate; I tied more ribbon to the leaf and distressed the edges with ink. Lots of space on this one for the sender to write their message.
Ciao for now!
