If You Can Dream
Good morning! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! I have a card to share with you today that was inspired by a card on the Taylored Expressions Pinterest Board. I was inspired by THIS CARD by Wanda Guess. What inspired me was the sponging of the frame. I often forget you can add "depth" and interest to a card without adding any bulk!
I decided to do this with the Spotted Cutting Plate. I die cut a piece of thin printer paper using the Spotted Cutting Plate. I secured it over a white piece of cardstock and sponged using Distress inks (Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint and Rusty Hinge). Once I peeled up the "template" I created, I was left with this wonderful background!
I used a sentiment from the New Beginnings set along with the Silhouette Stems 1 Die. Even though this is pretty much a clean and simple card, it doesn't really look like it because of what the sponging adds to the card! I hope you've been inspired as well!! Thanks for stopping by today!
