Day 3 of the on-line class A Cut Above was all about shaped cards. Decided to use Cricut cart Christmas/Noel to die cut this window frame shape:
The frame was embossed with Hero Arts (HA) S5208 Designer Woodgrain in white then distressed with Ranger antique linen distress ink. Poppies from HA CL449 Delicate Blossoms were embossed on watercolor paper then watercolored (using Zing water brush) with Ranger spiced marmalade and barn door distress inks and background was lightly brushed with tumbled glass distress ink. Sentiment from HA CL266 Mix & Match Elements was embossed on a piece of vellum and adhered behind the window frame. Butterfly from HA CL383 Antique Engravings was also embossed on a piece of AMuse gingham pp. After assembling the card base(this Cricut cart has a blackout feature that I used to die cut the card base pieces) the window frame was adhered to the front with foam tape.
I'm going to link this up to several challenges including:
one sponsored by Hero Arts
this one sponsored by A Blog Named Hero
and finally this one sponsored by Lily Pad Cards
Hope you're having a fabulous weekend!
