The new Expression Plus Designs dies are fantastic! I love the script design, and the die cuts are a great size. If you have not checked them out, you can by visiting the Scrapping Cottage On-Line Store. For a limited time, these wonderful dies are 25% off! Don't miss out!!
My color selections of card stock and coloring were selected to coincide with the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge for yesterday. These are the colors: shades of peach/orange and dark green.
I created my card by first stamping with black ink the CottageCutz Gladiolus Flower image onto white card stock and coloring it with copics that are close to the above colors. I used the matching die to cut out the floral image.
Afterwards, I decided I wanted to create an inlay with the image, so I used the negative of the floral image and a die from CottageCutz Cross-Stitched Rectangle Set to cut a rectangle. Additionally, my butterfly from the same floral stamp and die set was on this panel and I wanted to include it.
My next step was to use a stencil and oxide inks to create this panel from white card stock.
I decided I wanted a piece of designer paper for a mat for the panel. I attached the mat to the panel and adhered it to my card base.
I created a frame to go around the floral panel with two of the CottageCutz Cross-Stitched Rectangle Set dies. I attached foam tape to the frame and added it to the card.
Then I added foam tape to the floral image inlay panel and attached it inside the frame.
To complete the card, I added one of the Expression Plus Design script dies, hello, to the upper left of my card.
I hope you draw inspiration from my card, and come back tomorrow to see the artwork we have to share.
These are the CottageCutz dies used in creating the card:
