'Free Bird' Card with Corina Finley


Corina here with you today to host the blog. It has been a few weeks, due to the awesome January New Release unveiling last Friday! 

If you have not checked them out, please take the time and head over to the website - to make it even easier - follow this link directly there! Cheery Lynn Designs.

I used the leaves from the Rose and Leaves (set of 3) die. These leaves have such a wonderful detail to them, they are a perfect addition to any floral arrangement.

My favourite aspect of this card is the band across the bottom. Using my die cut machine and one die from the Royal Scandinavian Border Set (set of 3), I cut the border in black cardstock. I then used light yellow cardstock, measuring 4 1/4 x 3/4 and placed the same die in the center and cut it out. I kept the negative pieces (the pieces that you would throw away). 

To assemble my band:

I fit one negative piece of light yellow cardstock to the top of the black die cut border and one to the bottom. Like puzzle pieces!

I then cut a piece of pattern paper to 4 1/4 x 1 1/4. I adhered the black and yellow border to the pattern piece with an even matte of pattern paper showing at the top and bottom but flush on both ends.

Thanks for joining me today!

Take care,
