Hey everyone! Roree here with this week's Monday Challenge.
Sometimes you find a great image or sentiment on patterned paper that is just to wonderful to cover up. That is what happened to me when I was looking through the Daily Flash "All Boy" 6 x 8 Paper Pack. I instantly fell in love with the "I Love You to the Moon & Back" Sentiment/Graphic.
I knew it would be perfect for a card. The only problem was the image is 4" square. That is pretty much the size of a card. It wouldn't leave much room to add embellishments (which is completely out of the question for me!), so I had to get creative. Here is what I came up with:
I created a unique border to highlight the image using strips of Me First! patterned paper (B-side). I adhered the image and strips to a King of the Hill patterned paper (B-side) base, and then i added lots of fun little goodies, including stitching, Daily Flash "Eggnog" Pop Drops, and buttons from the Travel Girl and Farmhouse collections.
I finished the card with a Pop Drop heart in the sentiment and a Daily Flash "All Boy" Snap Cap sentiment.
The border allowed me to leave the sentiment/graphic intact, while still being able to add little bits of goodness that stick with my style.
So here is my challenge to you:
Create a unique border on your next OA project.
Hope you enjoyed today's project. Thanks so much for stopping by!
