Leafy Frame

Make the Cards Challenge #49

Based on this card and a previous post it is obvious that our lovely friend, Angie, is the source of my inspiration at the moment. This card was begun yesterday when I tested out my new cover die from MFT called Lots of Leaves. When I found the reminder about this challenge I realized that I already had the beginning of my entry so I completed it this morning. The beautiful shiny green CS was saved from packaging and I thought it would look good as the frame. Then I found some pale green vellum and cut the second piece from that. Like Angie I reversed the frame before gluing them together. Using a folder by Lifestyle Crafts called Courtyard Roses and some mixed media CS I got the background piece and added the frame to it. With the last piece of the darker green CS and a die from MFT called Twice the Hugs I cut out the word and added it curved slightly as shown. It is a clear CASE of Angie’s card but is still different because the products are not the same and I used a different sentiment on mine. Thanks Angie for being a consistent source of ideas to me.

  1. Your embossed background compliments the leaf frame perfectly. Angie is always a source of inspiration, isn’t she>
    Is the lighter green frame vellum? It looks translucent and very pretty.

    1. Thanks Gayle and yes the lighter frame is green vellum. The darker piece was some packaging I had saved. And Angie always does something that stimulates ideas for me.


  2. Angie did hers with inking and I chose card stock and vellum instead. Too lazy to ink I guess. Glad you like it.


  3. Absolutely lovely! I love how you layered that leafy border using vellum and CS! Thank you for joining us at Make The Cards Challenge!
