Hello friends today I have a sweet card to share.
My last DT share I created a layout where I fussy cut the wreath but only used half on the layout. Well this is how I used up the second half of the wreath. Firstly I cut a 5x7 inch strip from off white cardstock. I cut the same from the wreath paper, measuring 2.5 inches either side of the centre of the wreath. I machine stitched around the edge of this paper piece. This then created the visual cascading effect of the tulips. I added the larger dragonfly from the die cut pack attaching with foam tape. I chose a word sentiment from the Heidi Swapp stickers and again attached with foam tape. I finished the front of my card off with a light splatter of black color shine.
With a left over piece of the wreath paper I cut it so it would sit in the corner of the inner of my card. I machine stitched around the edge as I did on the front. I did not use foam tape to adhere as I did not want it to be too bulky. I chose another word sentiment sticker (attached with foam tape) to finish off.
This card is totally about beautiful papers and a very gorgeous dragonfly die cut! Machine stitching really adds a nice texture on a card.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and have look and read.
See you soon.
Hiya Scrappy peeps! Suzanna here as Ambassador again to share another layout that I created using the oh so gorgeous August Meadow kits! I went a little mixed media "heavy" and added one of the exclusive cut files but just LOVE the way it turned out.
I arranged the elements from the digital file (available HERE) into a heart shape and cut it with my Silhouette Cameo. I then removed the "positives" or the shaped leaving with the "negative". I overlayed the negative over a Distress Oxide background that I created, allowing the complimentary color mix to peek through the openings. For some additional movement and dimension to the page, I added a few of the "positives" or shapes. There's something about the effect that makes it seem like the fussy cut butterflies are flying, don't you think?
For a little more color and to ground the page a bit, I used a varegated yellow/orange thread and stitched a heart shape around the outer edge of the digital cut file. I also added a thin border around the outside edge of the layout to frame the page and really pop the colors in the mixed media background. You can just see the pops of gold that sparkle from the page.
In my last layout that I shared with you, (have you had time to play with the sketch challenge yet?) I used these same fussy cut yellow butterflies. They are just the best!! The pops of bright color from the custom die cuts created by Gia as so whimsical and fun!
I love the way you can leave these Heidi Swapp Minc words as they are or add foil for a complimentary color. I ran mine through my Minc with a coppery, orange. You can see how to do that in today's process video if you aren't sure how.
I have had a blast designing with Clique Kits' kit this month and look forward to seeing all the goodies y'all create with this kit. It's definitely "not your average" kit and this month is different to work with. It really pushes your creative boundaries, in a good way!
