Here's another card I made while visiting a friend and her craft room two weekends ago:
She had the new Simon Says Stamp Woodland Rectangular Frame die that I wanted to try, and I had my new Mama Elephant Purrfect Pair stamp set and dies, and this is what came out. I had my trusty wood-patterned paper pack with me, and I thought it tempered the frame a bit. I wanted the kitties to be the stars here. :)
I was also following the now-expired Nacho Average Challenge to use these colors:
I used the blue and green for the kitties' background, and the wood background paper stands in for the slate.
The heart was left over from one strip I die-cut with the Memory Box Heartfelt Delights die way back at the beginning of my crafty weekend. I used them all weekend long, and I might still have a few hearts left 10 days later.
One thing I've found with these frame dies: it's way easier to adhere the inner rectangle first, then fit the frame around it. With some of the larger frame dies, I use the negative as my guide for placement. Either way, you want a solid, non-flexible piece to use as your guide. It's the only way I've found to get it remotely straight.
In other news, today I mailed all my holiday cards, and now I plan to CRAFT. I hope to be back later this week with a few more challenge cards.
Thanks for stopping by!
