We made this card in class last month and I love its shape. I used the new Oval Accent Bigz Clear die to cut the card itself (made from Marina Mist). I first folded the cardstock, like I would for a regular card I was making, and then ran it throught the Big Shot with the die. Notice the slight flat place on the top of the card? That's where it's folded. Then I ran the front of the card only through the new Fancy Fan embossing folder to give the card texture. Love it!!
I like how the largest die from Apothecary Accents Framelits group fits inside the Oval Accent shape, so I cut designer paper from the World Spectacular collection to put on the Marina cardstock.I used another die from the Apothecary Accents die collection for the light blue sentiment shape. And I smudged Marina Mist around the edges--you know how I like smudging! The sentiment on this card is from the Trust God stamp set. I decided some yellow butterflies cut with the Beautiful Wings embosslit would be a nice touch, so I added those.
Opening a card envelope to find this unusually-shaped card would be fun! Make one for folks on your mailing list!!
Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment as I love seeing what you think!! Smiles, Laura
