I have had this idea for awhile now and wanted to try it out. I love my dies that have the stitched edging that shows up on the negative space. So I decided to try it with my cutting machine. So I picked out a leaf shape I liked and sized them to fit a 4 x 5.25 inch card front.
I then added a shadow layer but changed it from a cut line to a score line. It's faint in the photos, but you can deff see it's there when you actually hold the card in your hand.
I had recently bought a huge pack of seed beads from Michael's that has every color you could possibly need. And I have a lot of sequins and micro beads as well. So I created my own mixes. I chose three different color schemes and used one in each window.
I wrapped some twine along with some metallic threads...copper and gold...and tied a bow. The sentiment is gold embossed and cut into a flag end. I glued the left edge direct to paper and put a foam square under the right edge.
I scattered around some sequins and had gold embossed an area of cardstock to get a few leaves die cut out. I than placed those slightly over the windows on the card front.
I mounted the front panel to some chocolate brown card stock and then that was placed on a white card base.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you were inspired. Get out your supplies and do some crafting!
