This is Caly and I’m here to share two cards made using foliage frames in different ways. My first card uses the Foliage Frame Inset die as a colorful element and my second card uses the Foliage Frame die as a softer frame over a colorful background.
To create my first card, I ink-blended a white panel with Pinkfresh Studio dye inks in Mint, Emerald City, and Meadow to create an ombre look before die-cutting. I adhered foam adhesive to the back of my frame before adhering it over a white panel die-cut with the Diagonal Stitched Rectangle die for some added interest.
The bold sentiment is die-cut in glitter and black cardstock from the Phrase Builder: Sending die. I stamped the leading sentiment in Meadow ink over white cardstock and adhered it to my card using foam adhesive, then embellished it with green jewels to fill the white space.
My second card uses a very similar die – but it’s a full frame die without overhangs like the Inlet die. This time, I die-cut the frame in white and ink-blended the background with Ballet Slippers, Sparkling Rose, and Raspberry Bliss dye inks blending the darkest around the card and lighter towards the center.
I splattered my panel with water and white ink and allowed it to dry while I turned my frame into a shaker window by adhering acetate and foam adhesive to the back. Once dry, I added clear confetti to the center and mounted my shaker window. The using the same inks, I ink-blended some light pink cardstock to create another ombre blend before die-cutting the “sending love” sentiment from the Phrase Builder: Sending die set.
I hope you enjoyed these cards! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
