Good morning friends, here’s to hoping your day is glorious! Sometimes in creating I kick about and don’t land on anything creatively until I pick a piece or a sentiment that resonates with me. If you’ve been around my blog a long time – that’s how I create – from the heart, it’s what’s going on in my life right now. That’s today – some days you’re sailing and some days you need a firm reminder to have faith and stay the course. I have to agree with the sentiment that I picked today from Quietfire Design – Worry. Isn’t that the wonderful thing though, sitting down with things so beautiful helps that sentiment settle on your heart. I’m definitely the beneficiary today.
I picked a 6″ x 6″ card base to make my card and set a filigree layer using a die I haven’t used in many moons, Spellbinders Filigree Delight. On top of that I layered the new Spellbinders Victorian Fan, using two to create a textured, embossed circle. On top of that I layered Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG flanked by Spellbinders Corners and Accents One.
Tip: When setting up layers for your cards, think in terms of stair steps with each bottom layer showing off the next layer up. That detail gives interest and will lead the eye in to the focal point.
