Ornate and Floral Framed Get Well Soon

Good Sunday morning.  I am hosting the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge this week and we are honoring Lisa Sommerville.  You can see Lisa’s Splitcoaststampers gallery here and more of Lisa’s work of her blog at Splendiferous Creations

Here are the rules of the challenge:

Go to the Featured Stamper's gallery and CASE a card, following these simple CASEing Guidelines:
1. Change 2 or more things on the Featured Stamper's project. It could be a color combo, embellishments, backgrounds, or even the main image could be different — but similar because you don't own the exact image. Please list the changes you made in your description.
2. Give credit to the original stamper and put a link to the original card in your description.

I was inspired by Lisa’s Thank You card with the die cut sentiment and floral embellishments.  I kept the die cut sentiment and floral embellishment theme but used a square layout and frame and changed the color combination to pink, white and green. For my project I used the Impression Obsession Ornate Square Frame, Get Well Soon, Foliage and Tiny Flowers.  The square layers were cut using the Nesting Squares.

I started by cutting the layers and frame. I attached the pink layer directly to the card base and attached the white layer to the pink using strips of mounting tape.  The frame and sentiment were attached with strips of rolled up double stick tape. The rolled thin layer of adhesive makes it very easy to apply to the back of die cut images with thin borders and yet allows them to be popped up for dimension.

The foliage sections were cut apart and attached to the corners of the frame using glossy accents.  The tiny flowers were formed using my stylus and molding pad and attached to the foliage with glossy accents.

Here’s a closer view of the floral sprays and sentiment.  I couldn’t resist adding one little flower and leaf section to the S of the sentiment.

I forgot to mention above that  I cut two sentiments and attached them together with touches of glossy accents to make it appear a little more substantial.

  1. If I were sick and received a card like the one above it would make me well at least to all my senses! What a beautiful card!

  2. This is just stunning Kittie, I love the flower in the S as well. A beautiful touch!
    I don’t own a decorative die such as this but they DO make a gorgeous card. TFS!

  3. Another beautiful card. Love the colors and dies you used….love it that I have those tiny flower dies, too….very clever to add to the “S” with foliage and flower….you are so talented.
    Once again, I didn’t get yesterday’s or today’s posts in my email. I hate AOL. So, I’m just checking your site directly from the web. Cannot figure this out.
    If you have a Xyron machine, try running your die cuts through it when you want to stack intricate die cuts…I pulled out my old machine that had just been gathering dust and I am getting lots of use out of it now. Actually, my fav way to do it is to cut my cardstock the size I need for cutting the die(s), run it through the machine first which adds adhesive to the back, then I die cut with that. It eliminates having to use the adhesive remover eraser thing to get off the adhesive that sometimes is in the little spaces between parts of the die cut. Make sense? I don’t always explain things well, or so my hubby says. LOL
    Thanks for the great card today….just beautiful!!!!

  4. P.S. I showed my crafting friend how you roll the double sided tape and she was astounded….so glad I know you. (smile)

  5. Kittie….
    I love this card… So very delicate… and as always, you’ve retained your crown as the queen of flowers.
    Thank you for sharing your wonderful creativity…. Hope you & Mr Kittie have a wonderful Father’s Day…

  6. Good Afternoon, Kittie. One couldn’t stay sick long when they received this gorgeous card. full of lovely flowers, and lots of love… thanks for sharing…HUGS
