I’ve chosen to do a “stampless” card today. [ Oops, I lied – there are two stamps used on it – one for the inside and one for the back.] When I noticed that OCS was carrying the Marianne dies, I was over the moon! So today I’m showcasing a Marianne Creatable die called, Elegant Lady , along with Spellbinders oval and scalloped oval die. I started with the die cut and made it into a cameo by placing it onto a white oval (added color to the cut out) and matted it with a black scalloped oval, to which I added pearls made with my Ice White Viva Decor pen. The die is so elegant, that I thought I would make it look like a picture covered with glass – so I used Ranger Glossy Accents to cover the cameo. “Gorrjussss”!!! Looks like a little framed picture.
I really love making different folds for cards – this one is a vertical flap over a regular card base, which allows me to leave a private message, but also allows the card to be displayed. There are so many beautiful die cut borders and border punches available at OCS, but I chose a MS border punch b/c I had it handy on my crafting desk. I used Broken China TH distress ink to distress the edges and added some flowers and a trendy, large Organza Ribbon Bow. The flowers are from here, and here. The flap is held in place with a little black photo tab and brad (from stash).
Here is a look at the inside flap of the card.
And the back.
Until next time – take care
