My first card for today features the Diamond Lace Frame Cut and Emboss Folder. The delicate and intricate design of this folder is just beautiful – you don’t need much more than a sentiment to complete your card. Here I decided to step it up a little, and create lots of dimension with a few elements and foam adhesive.
I started by embossing two 4”x5.25” panels of the same color. I then fussy cut only the central portion of one of them, heat-embossed my sentiment on it, and adhered it on top of the full panel with foam adhesive.
I backed the panel with different colored patterned papers before matting it with white card stock and placing it on top of the teal card base. To embellish it, I used some floral images I had in my stash to create two clusters, and finished the card off with clear drops.
The second card was created using the Botanical Frame Cut and Emboss Folder.
I wanted to use patterned paper for this panel, but I also knew that a busy pattern would have hidden the beautiful design created with the folder. So I went with a more subtle choice; you can see the darker roses on the paper, but that doesn’t distract from the embossed image. I then backed my panel with teal card stock before adhering it to an A2 card base.
Next, the embellishments. Again, I didn’t want or need to add much more; just three butterflies that I fussy cut from patterned paper, and a heat-embossed sentiment on the same teal card stock I used for my matting. Enamel dots in coordinating colors finished the card.
I have truly enjoyed working with these fabulous products. They are all you need to create beautiful cards in no time.
