Pearly Frame – CPS 101

Todays card is one I did for Card Positioning Systems (CPS)!    I love working with sketches and this one is absolutely a classic and  it has gone into my permanent sketches file!!

Basically I took my Spellbinders Decorative Frames Set and cut them from Solar White Paper, stenciling them with Tattered Rose Distress Ink including stenciling the area inside the frame.  Are we seeing a pattern here?  Yes, same inks I used on my card from yesterday – I love the vintage-y mauve-y feel of that ink!!  The edges of all white papers are then smudged very conservatively with the Tattered Rose Ink. 

I stamped a sentiment from one of the new sets with Our Daily Bread Designs  – this is is called I Am the Way.  I elevated the big frame then double elevated the smaller frame to make it rise above.  A pink pearl, some greenery and white satin ribbon finish off the main parts of the card and then I mounted it on a shimmery piece of Coral cover stock from The Paper Company that I punched with a Martha Stewart Edger.  Oops, I forgot to mention the pearls – my favorite embellishment of the week!

    Ahh—you are one of the most talented card makers. you’re work is so beautiful.
    I’m wondering if you have a tip or two for me… do you get the punch to be even from the inside edge of the circle? Mine isn’t even and it doesn’t look right. Also–any tips to aligning the punch evenly around the circle.

    Thanks so much, JanetReplyCancel
