Recently I purchased this die cut from Spellbinders called "Decorative Labels Eight". As you will notice I cut my die cut ever so slightly by cutting it over the folded edge so that I could open it upwards while showing the pretty edges instead of gluing it to a piece of paper as my background.
Here is the inside to help visualize how it looks when opened.
I also used a square piece of embossed paper to adhere to the pretty edge and then used my daubers rubbing my chalk inks to the paper while giving it a pretty pastel colored background. I continued to add layers and a couple Fleur D' Les to it.
As you may have noticed I have a bow here on this card. I very seldom do large bows on my cards. Most generally when I get done I find no room for a bow. However, a pretty white bow really glammed up this card this time. I may have to start doing more bows on my cards? Sometimes I'm not real satisfied of how some of my cards turn out but, I really was quite pleased with this one.
Well...hope you have a happy scrappin week?
Do come back soon.......
