Card - Framed Petunias

Hi, I know I'm a little late, but as promised, this week I'm going to show you some of my recent DT projects for Scrappy-Go-Lucky featuring the "Freshly Picked" cartridge. I thought I'd begin with this bright pot of petunias in a self-standing framed card.

Two pieces of card are used cut at 6" x 4". Using George & Basic Shapes, and lining up the placement on the Gypsy, an oval is cut in the centre of the front piece sized at 3.5". Using the Scor-Pal, score two vertical lines - 3/8" and 6/8" - in from each side (as shown on the left below). These lines are then folded, one up and one down (as shown on the right below).

The back piece is also scored and folded with the same measurements.

Again using George & Basic Shapes, I cut an oval at 4 1/4" from a pretty lilac paper, and adhered this to the centre of the back card.

Before the card is put together, I attach all ribbons, etc. so that the ends can be hidden between the two layers. Adhesive is then applied to the two outer folds, and the two card pieces are joined. The photo below shows a view of the card from the top.

This beautiful pot of petunias, layers, and shadow are all cut at 2.1". Cardstock used is DoubleMates, and I have used my Copics to form a shadow on the side of the pot. Of course a little purple and gold glitter is added for sparkle. The pot is attached with foam dots for extra dimension.

The light green leaf layer left some smaller leaves as extras. As I don't like wasting anything, I have used these to highlight the sentiment. One reason I love the DoubleMates cardstock is that, being double-sided, one cut gives you two different coordinating looks - light and dark. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up; and I've added a couple of brads on the ribbon, and also stamped some small flower stems on the main card front for a subtle background.

Till next time,
Luv, Tereesa.
