Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #300

Hello everybody...

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I have a couple cards today that I have made for the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday challenge which was Build a Wreath by Melissa Phillips. I just adore everything that Melissa makes. She has such a delicate style and always makes the things she does look so easy.

I have used the large scalloped frame die from Papertrey Ink's Nostalgic Notions and the wreath from Rustic Wreath on both cards.

For the first card I covered the card front in a soft plaid paper and added the scalloped frame and the wreath. 

I added some little sprigs of greenery here and there from the Holiday Folk stamp set along with some metallic stars. The sentiment stamped in black and the focal image of that darling little deer are from the same set.

I finished off with a few little sparkly gems here and there.


The second card is a white card base and I have stamped the corner detail from Nostalgic Notions in the upper and lower opposite corners in a soft pink.

Then comes the scalloped frame in a checkerboard paper and I have darkened the edges. The wreath in a metallic paper follows but it does not really show up in the photos.

I have stamped and cut out the flowers from Nostalgic Notions and positioned them around the wreath along with a few leaves. In the background I have used the Stitches & Swirls stamp set for a few swirls and finished off with a few pearls.

The sentiment is the die cut from Bloomin Cute Sentiments.

I cut out a piece of fun foam using the frame die and then trimmed it down just a bit so it would not be visible so I could mount the whole thing up on the card for a little something extra.

So there you have it. This was a really fun challenge to play along with. Thanks every so much for visiting with me today. Your comments always make me smile. Have a wonderful day. Cheers.
