CAS Card Making Day 6


I wanted to try Kristina's idea from her Day 6 Lesson, and also was influenced by seeing a card by Jessica Witty that was referenced on Day 8, using a die cut to emboss a frame.  I used a piece of Hero Arts layering paper as my card base, but turned it inside out so that the white was on the outside and the color inside, then embossed my die cut, cut out the center with a circle die, and made my flower to go inside the card.  I LOVED Kristina's idea to use the twine wound around the card as a stem for my flower, and a bow for leaves!  Here's the result:

And a closer look at the stamped and layered flower inside the card:

  4. LOVE this idea, Lin! The flower would have been pretty enough on its own, but using the embossed frame was brilliant! Love the use of twine for the stem too! So creative! :)

    The prediction for snow in our area is 2-4 inches today! But, I am hoping we only get the two!!
