Frame It!


 
Hi and Good Morning - Alison here today :)
 
First of all the DT were all blown away by the amount of fabulous entries we had last week.  Thank you so much for sharing your awesome creations with us, it seems we all like to add a bit of a flourish!
 
My card today was recently featured in the 'Cutting Edge article in 'Scrap & Stamp Art Magazine', and I was so chuffed and proud when I found out it had been chosen.  I thought it fitted this weeks theme of 'Frame It' perfectly too as it uses one of my favourite frame dies - Polynesian Sails Oval.
 
I started off with a 6 x 6 inch Kraft Card base and stitched and layered MME Paris & Co papers.  I framed this fun Lili of the Valley image with the top part of the Polynesian Sails die and used the matching Angel Wing to create the backing in Kraft card.  The border is the brilliant Pennant Die which I cut twice, once in Kraft and layered a 2nd cut in paper for contrast.  The embossing on this die is perfect and always comes out superb. 
 
I made the variety of flowers using a mix of Build A Flower dies and the larger tatty flower is BAF #2. I then added the tiny flowers using the Buttercups in Embellishment #2 set, and finished the card off with some pearls and pearly brads.
 
The corner metal embellishement was hand-made by me on a wire jig and the pins were hand-made by a blogging friend.  I printed the sentiment on my pc.
 
All dies used on this card are:
 
 
I hope you find time to join us again this week, you still have lots of time to enter.  Dont forget there is also daily inspiration from the rest of the talented DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog.
 
Have a smashing week and thanks so much for visiting today!
