It's the last Saturday of the month and the long holiday weekend! Do you all have some fun plans? Crafty plans? I've got some of both! Today a few of us are sharing some cards using the new On the Border: Fall for Foliage die for this week's Ink to Paper Saturday Showcase! I didn't know that we would be using this die when I made my card for this week's DT tips that I shared yesterday. I decided to switch gears from an Autumn design to something more "everyday"!
Once I finished it off, I thought it had a spa-like feel; crisp and modern! The To Die For Sentiments: Boxed-In For You Die layered three times and adhered to the vellum really enhanced this streamlined look.
To begin, I die cut the border out of Simply Chartreuse cardstock. I cut a panel of Spring Moss cardstock and added some ink blending around the edges using Simply Chartreuse ink . Once that was done, I adhered the die cut frame over the top using liquid glue. I added some black paint splatter using a small paint brush to get just a hint of added detail. I stamped the "with sincere gratitude" sentiment, which is from the Just Sentiments: To & From Essentials stamp set, in black.
The vellum portion is wrapped around the panel and secured in the back using adhesive. After that was done, I was able to adhere it to a standard A2 cardbase.
I added a few sparkling clear sequins here and there for some simple sparkle and shine!
This card is much simpler than I usually make, but it's always nice to have a change. I love knowing that this border die can go from Spring to Autumn! Have a fun and safe holiday weekend! Thanks for fluttering by!
