Hi there friends, today we are having a blog hop to give you some inspiration for the June Die of the Month. I just love this die set, the design inspiration was Battenburg Lace and I thought it would be perfect to design it into a corner. This set is called Enchanting Batterburg Corners. Oh, and also the winner from last weeks blog hop is listed at the bottom of my post.
I’ve always gotten a lot of mileage out of corner dies and my mind immediately thought of a gazillion ways to use it. I took the opportunity to make a “large” square card – it’s much like what my UK friends make but I’ve also seen large store bought cards this size. This one is a belated graduation card and I’m tickled with how it turned out. This Quietfire Design sentiment from the Every Day is a Journey Set seems perfect for the occasion. In addition to the sentiment inside, there is room to put a pocket the size of a dollar bill so that I can enclose money or a pocket the size of a credit card so that I can add a gift card. I’ll do that once I decide.
My Project Today:
For this card, I cut four of the Battenburg pieces and trimmed the flaps to a scant 1/8″. Then I taped them together by the flap. It creates a beautiful square. Then I took the small corner piece and a strip of 4″ paper and trimmed off the top using the upper rim and inlay. I did the same on the bottom for a long centerpiece. To finish off I cut the shadow of small corner piece from gold and layered it behind.
