Sweet Framed Flowers
Or should I say Sweet 'n Sassy framed flowers! I've been hard at work on creating samples for upcoming classes but I needed a SNSS crafting break! I love my Sweet 'n Sassy stamps and miss them when I haven't used them in a few days... This card was inspired by a layout I saw in the new SU! mini catalog. The thing I really liked about the layout was a hint of newsprint peeking out from under designer paper. Reminded me of pulling off a piece of old wallpaper, to reveal a little surprise underneath! I even rolled up the edge of the designer paper for a more worn look. (The designer paper is from Ruby Rock-it....see I told you I never tire of this design!!) The frame was created using a label and oval die cut from Nestibilities. (The oval was placed inside the label die cut and then both were run through the Big Shot). These lovely flowers are from the August Gladiola set from Sweet 'n Sassy. SNSS now has flower stamps for each month of the year...fabulous! I cut around a few of the flower buds so that they could extend over the edge of the frame. A tiny piece of ribbon and a brad was added to the bottom of the frame...just for a little decorative touch. The sentiment, also included with the Gladiola set, was stamped in a circle and everything was attached with foam tape. Enjoy!!
