I had some creative time yesterday just to play. It was so good. I don’t have a lot of occasions to do this for a whole day. Good for the soul 🙂
After I made some customer Thank You cards (which I will show you next post) I could play with the Botanical Builder Framelits. I only got the framelits recently. I was NOT going to get these. Nup, I don’t need them, BUT I saw so many gorgeous things created that one day they slipped in to my order on Hostess rewards. Just one of the many perks being a demonstrator. 😉
So I thought I would show you what I made. I think I only touched the tip of the iceberg here. So much to make with them.
I saw this idea on a Facebook group I am on to use the leaf border as the centre border on a card. I thought that was clever. Have to say though it was harder to work out than it looked – and maybe cut the right side of the card! Here is the first card. I am still not too sure of it. I thought I would show you anyway.
The base in Sahara Sand and the Designer Series Paper piece is from the ‘It’s my Party’ Paper Stack. I think the colour of the DSP leaves it looking a little flat. I cut a piece of Mint Macaron card slightly smaller and then cut the leaf edge from the centre. Just check which way you need to cut it first!!!
The sentiment is from ‘Birthday Blossoms’ set stamped in Black. I added some Rhinestones but still thought it was missing something. After I cut some flowers for another card I added a flower to the top right. The flower is in white and I sponged the edges. I don’t know, what do you think? Missing something?
Well after making this card I tried another one this time in Island Indigo.
I do like this version better. Maybe it’s a bit brighter? I added some Adhesive Pearls to this one. The sentiment is from ‘A Dozen Thoughts’. This might work for a wedding card?
When I made the Mint Macaron version above I first cut it wrong. Rather than waste the piece I thought I would make another card.
I added the strip along the bottom of a Whisper White mat which I had embossed with the ‘Softly Falling’ Embossing Folder. The card base is Mint Macaron. This sentiment is also from ‘Birthday Blossoms’ which I cut with an Oval Framelit. The flowers were cut in White and then sponged with some smaller Mint Macaron ones in the centre.
I can’t wait to get back to playing with these some more to see what else I can make. Lots of versions layering and sponging!!
Thanks for visiting.
