Border Challenge: Thank You Card


I have a friend who has been so generous and so I wanted to create a card for her.  I have been wanting to try a different style of card design and found just the push I needed when I found the current Circle challenges; this is my entry for Weekly Challenge #45. 

For the details:
  • Doily:  5" cut on Expression using Sophie (page 23)
  • Oval with border:  3" cut on Expression using Art Philosophy (page 42)
  • Scallop behind oval:  3-1/2" cut on Expression using Art Philosophy (page 52)
  • Floral square: hand-cut 5" x 5"
  • 1/2" grosgrain ribbon applied
  • Blue background solid:  hand-cut 8-1/4" x 5"
  • Kraft paper lace border:  1" cut on Expression using Art Philosophy (font layer page 66)
  • Brown scallop border:  1-1/4" cut on Expression using Art Philosophy (font shift page 66)

  • Base flower for center of oval:  3" cut on Imagine using Lori's Garden, trimmed to fit (page 15)
  • Dimensional roses: 2" and 1-1/2"  cut on Expression using Art Philosophy (font shift page 69)
  • Banner:  1-1/4" cut on Expression using Formal Occasion (page 34).  Adhered with 1/8" pop dots.
  • Text printed directly on banner using Microsoft Chopin Script at 28 point in brown.
  • Self-adhesive pearls were applied in an improvised pattern.
  • Card base is Kraft paper hand-cut 8-1/4" x 10"; folded to finish at 8-1/4" x 5".
