This card was inspired by a card I saw by Karen Varley at Donemark Papercrafts. You can see the original here.
I just love Bermuda Bay so I used this as a starting point to make the frame with my Stitched Rectangles dies.
I knew I wanted a sentiment for the middle. I picked out this one from the Seize the Day stamp set. This fitted perfectly onto one of the smaller rectangles.
After fiddling around with the layout, I decided I wanted to stamp around the frame. I used the Stamparatus for this so I could use 2 ink colours. I find this works best using sponge daubers to apply each colour. This stamp was from the same set. I was so pleased with the result.
I layered this panel on to Bermuda Bay card stock and then to a white card base.
The frame and sentiment were added with dimensionals.
To complete the card I added some vellum leaves. This softened the edges of the frame without being distracting.
I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.
I would love to be your demonstrator.
Don’t miss out on these last chance items…. When they’re gone, they’re gone!
Thanks for stopping by today and happy Stampin’!
