12 Dies of Clarity day 3 – floral frame

Hello crafty friends and welcome to day 3 of my 12 Dies of Clarity personal challenge. Today, I’m using the ‘special friend floral frame’ from March’s Craft Club to make a couple of cards.

I started by cutting the die in white card and snipped the sentiment out of the centre. I’d put ‘Stick It’ on the back before die cutting, so could then easily attach the floral frame to a piece of Clarity’s ‘Indian Summer’ paper. I then fussy cut the paper around the edge of the die.

I attached it to a 5×5 card blank. I stamped the two butterflies from Clarity’s ‘small butterfly wreath’ onto a piece of the ‘Indian Summer’ paper and heat embossed them with WOW’s bright white powder. I fussy cut them and glued them onto the die cut frame.

I finished by stamping one of Clarity’s ‘essential sentiments’ below the frame using ‘thistle’ Archival ink.

For the second card I cut the floral frame out of the designer paper (again snipping the sentiment out of it). I cut a larger frame using a couple of square nested dies, attached both to piece of pale blue card and popped the whole piece onto a 5×5 card blank.

I stamped one of the butterflies onto the patterned paper using ‘sky blue’ Archival, fussy cut it and glued it to the floral frame. I die cut a banner from the ‘Indian Summer’ paper, stamped the sentiment in the ‘sky blue’ and attached it to the card front.

Thanks for dropping in. I’m really enjoying working back through this year’s Craft Club dies – see you tomorrow for day 4.
