July 31

Happy Friday!!

Girl Friday Virginia is here with two awesome projects using our 
Lovely Links Fri-Dies and Lovely Greetings. 
She calls them:
One border die, two colorful ways!


Oh gosh, these cards are both so great!
Check out the cool techniques she used to create them.

For card #1, I created a colorful paper with water-colors with Peerless

I used a pattern paper for the base and created a vibrant background. Add the sentiment with black card stock, sequins and thread, this card is complete!

For card #2, I created a softer watercolor paper with Gelatos. I purposedly left the small hearts inside the dies as they add more colors and interest.

I stamped the sentiment with two colors (Teal/Mint and Black). Thus, it makes a stronger statement.

Thanks Virginia!
These are so pretty!!!

  9. This is something I should post on my fridge - or somewhere I can see it often - every time I see this brilliant use of border dies as the main element of a card, I slap my forehead for once again overlooking this simple use of borders. Thanks once again, Virginia.
