This week sweet and talented Lisa is hosting a technique challenge. I've never tried this technique before, so it was truly a challenge for me...as I hope it is for you also :]
I embossed the flowers in both pink and white on my two pieces of cardstock. Notice the off-centered middle line? Well, that would be me cutting a wavy line with my Creative Memories cutting system. BUT, the wavy was short lived considering how small my piece of paper was :[ Hopefully you get the idea behind what I was trying to do.
After I cut the wavy center line, I used my Cricut to cut the fancy rectangle in the size I wanted for my main image using a scrap piece of paper. I then layered my two pieces under the frame that was still temporarily adhered to the mat, removed the "frame", and cut my two pieces into the same decorative rectangle. I then cut a navy decorative rectangle a 1/4 inch larger and adhered it to my two pieces.
I cut another decorative rectangle from scrap paper 1/4 inch smaller than my main image and used it as a guide to pierce a border. I distressed my Fluttering-by definition paper, tied my ribbon to it, and adhered it to my distressed A Loving Heart flourishes paper. I pierced a border using my Tim Holtz ruler and adhered it to my PTI New Leaf card front.
You can barely see it on the flourish paper but I added a white rub-on in the bottom right corner that says "happy day". Even though it's hard to see, I like how subtle it is :]
