The current (current, I KNOW) challenge at The Paper Players is Framed:
I used this opportunity to play with an idea I had. Back in September, my pal Natalie (check out her SCS gallery - amazing stuff there) made this card for a challenge I was hostessing:
See how there is a cut-out that looks like it's part of the frame? Well, that's because IT IS! I demanded she link me IMMEDIATELY to where I could purchase this die, which she did because she is so nice, but then she informed me it's discontinued.
Side note: This is my lot in life. Shoes that fit: discontinued. Jeans that fit: discontinued. Dies I must own: discontinued. Sigh.
So I decided I could make my own frame dies if I only owned the Deckled Edge Rectangle dies, so I bought them. I did. And today I USED them to make this:
I stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts Epic Love OWH set, and stamped it again in Distress Persimmon Ink to have the heart to cut out. After I put the frame together onto the Pool card base, I decided it was boring, so I added dots with my Viva Pearl Pen:
That's it! It was pretty easy to make, and now that I own the Deckled Edge Rectangles, I can play with my other rectangular dies and see what else I can create. (Did you see what I just did there? Mmm-hmmm.)
I have a few more challenges waiting in the wings, and I hope to get to a few of them between laundry and cleaning.
Thanks for stopping by!
