Why didn't I think of that?

That's the thought that came into my head when I saw this card by Shari Carroll...
I mean I've stencilled with hearts, balloons, clouds and various other things that I've cut from my dies, but never thought to do one with my frame dies... Sheesh!

Anyway I rectified that today... I needed a birthday card for my husbands DIL Hannah and I don't think she's a "flowers and hearts" girl so I thought this would be better


Actually she's an architect by profession so maybe she will appreciate the geometric like design... Either way I enjoyed making this.


I opted to keep it pretty clean and just stamped and embossed the MFT flowers and leaves.. Deciding on where and how to put the sentiment took a little longer but eventually I kept that pretty simple too with a non fussy sentiment on vellum that still allows the design to show through


I hope you are having a lovely Sunday... We are due more rain today but I'm not complaining, it's not been a bad summer at all and I much prefer the cooler temperatures.

Till soon, be safe

Yes I am with you on using die cuts as stencils but sometimes the most obvious is the hardest! Yes often choosing the sentiment and layout takes the most time x Gorgeous geometric layout and I am sure as an architect she'll love it.

What a brilliant idea! I'm continually inspired by the things I see when I'm out blog hopping. Great idea to use just an outline for the flowers and leaves as you've got your color in the background. I think it's fabulous, Ros!

Color blocking! Don't see how an architect could not appreciate this. Really fun and different Ros.
