A daily papercrafting blog which features my handmade cards showcasing Creative Expression's products including my own line of cutting dies and embossing folders, Cosmic Shimmer, Ranger, Spellbinders and more which use various techniques and ideas to hopefully inspire the creativity in you.
Good Sunday morning all! This is an oldie but goodie (hopefully you will think so too!) I have done a few cards like this in the past as I really like the fact that you can use the Double Pierced Noble Circles and give them a slight oval effect! I used the set and cut three "frames," but with each one, I pinched one of the sides together when setting them up to cut until they touched (but not overlapped) and cut them so you end up with a frame that is way wider at one side than the other, which gives the appearance of a sort of oval shape. I mounted all three with mounting foam and set them on to my background which was created by embossing a piece of papyrus colour card with the Jacobean Floral embossing folder. I added four pearl corners in cream to each of the corners. I cut a sentiment by using two lines from the Triple Line Best Wishes die set. I used the negative space cut from milk card and backed it with Papyrus, then a thin black mat. At the left side, I added a double bow tied from some beautiful silk ribbon (I found on Ebay) that matched the papyrus card perfectly. I added a vellum flower cut from the Exquisite Poppy die and accented with black jute and black Lace Edged Leaves and cream tulle. I gave the card a thin black mat then finished with two milk card mats. The finished dimensions are 8 1/4" x 8 1/4" in size.
