Add tons of interest to a quick and easy card with die cut frames.
Today we have Melinda to thank for this great idea for a quick and easy card with die cut frames to add some instant, easy interest. She says “I wanted to create a colorful card today that didn’t require extensive coloring. I love these new frame dies and definitely wanted to incorporate them into today’s design.” We love how Melinda used the different stamps in our Poetic Peonies set with her mixed Color Fuse shades to build out her beautiful bouquet. Let’s get all her 4-1-1 on this versatile idea.
Melinda started by cutting a piece of white card stock with the largest die in our Fancy Decorative Nested Die set. Next, she inked up the medium sized flower with some Scarlett and Mango Color Fuse by simply dabbing her cubes into the areas she wanted the different colors. If you want to, you can use a blending brush to blend any harsh lines. She stamped this in one corner area of her die cut panel. Melinda then repeated this with the largest bud stamp in the opposite corner.
Next, Melinda inked up some of the leaf stamps from the set with Clover Color Fuse and stamped those between the flowers.
She cut a scrap of white card stock with the smallest of the decorative dies in the set and stamped her sentiment – this one is from our Sunflower Beauty set – onto it in black ink.
While she was die cutting, Melinda also cut another white card stock scrap with our Leaf Group die. She adhered these to her design along the stamped images and opposite each other for just a touch of texture.
Melinda then adhered her sentiment frame with a bit of dimensional foam tape to the center of her floral arrangement and then adhered the whole panel to a card base with more foam tape. Just gorgeous!
Here’s what Melinda used today on the fast and easy card that is just breathtaking:
