Special Thank You

As I mentioned last week, during the month of July the CottageCutz design team is reminding you of some older dies when making their cards.  My card uses two such dies -- Stitched Leaves and the Pierced Wide Rectangle Frame Set.

To start my card, I cut the stitched leaves from a piece of white cardstock.

I then colored the pieces with Copic markers.  I had originally planned to use a white pen to make the stitches more pronounced, as is shown on the packaging; but I was not happy with the results on the first leaf I tried.  So I turned it over and colored the back so it was not wasted.

I then cut the card base pieces and the frame.  The cream card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"; and the inside of the frame is 3 5/8" x 4 5/8".  I used the largest frame die.

I adhered foam tape on the back of the frame.

After constructing the card, I laid out the leaves down the side of the frame to see how much room I would have for my sentiment.

I removed the leaves and stamped the sentiment.

I then replaced the leaves, gluing them down over and under the frame, as well as the acorns at the bottom.  And my card was finished.

CottageCutz dies used on this card are:
