Jenn here, back again with another week of guest designing. Thank you so very much for all your comments the past two weeks- they really mean a lot!
I am so impressed with all the gorgeous creations from the DT showcasing all the new dies. They all did such a wonderful job with their projects, didn't they? The new dies are all so lovely, I had such a hard time deciding which ones I wanted! I would not be surprised if they are here in time for me to play with by my post next week. One thing I absolutely love about ordering directly from Cheery Lynn is how super fast my order ships.
This week while looking around for inspiration, I found some really pretty cards that I wanted to give a try. I have seen them called book cards or shadowbox cards. I also have a few border/edger dies that I haven't used yet which I thought would work perfectly for this type of project. Here is my first go (lots of pictures):
This is the front of the card, the ribbon on the side is to tie the two covers closed.
This was taken from a different angle, to show the dimension of the flowers.
Here is a close up of the flowers. I've used the Daisy Strip, Shasta Daisy Strip and Chrysanthemum Strip. There is also some different foliage (list at bottom), a bark heart and some flower buds that my darling toddler brought to me to add in lol!
This is the inside of the card- the shadowbox portion. As you can see, I've been playing around with bits and pieces again :) The only problem I have with that is I tend to forget which dies I've used pieces from! Doesn't the Felicity Doily look a bit like a lace sun? So pretty. I've also used another Daisy Strip, but this time I folded the petals in half lengthwise before shaping the rest of the way.
And lastly, here is a picture of the inside cover. I chose this paper out of the bunch because of the lined section which will give me a spot to write my sentiment/message once I decide what to use the card for.
That's it for me this week- wishing everyone a fantastic weekend!
