The Paper Players Challenge #118

Hey Everyone

It’s been ages since I’ve had a chance to play along with the challenges at The Paper Players.  The reason being the challenges goes live on a Sunday evening here in Australia and then they finish early Saturday morning.  I work full time, so I find it hard to enter most weeks now – unless of course I have a day off work like I did today 🙂

The very talented Anne Marie has given the challenge this week of creating a clean and simple project using frames.  I may as well let you know now – my card is not truly clean and simple…….you know I struggle with this.

This card started with my wanting to use my new Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP.  I fell in love with this gorgeous DSP, but wanted to use it for a feminine card rather than a Christmas one.  I’ve made a card with a kind of a shadow box frame that I embossed with my new Lacy Brocade embossing folder.  I tend to fussy-cut a lot (have you noticed?) and have used one of the flowers from Everything Eleanor and the leaves from Summer Silhouettes.  For the base of the shadow box I stamped the words from a retired Stampin’ Up! set called Charming. Here’s what I came up with:

And from another angle so you can see the raised frame:

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. beautiful – I love trying my hand at what you do – and then veering off to make it my own a bit. Your neutrals inspire me – and I am usually a colour girl! Many thanks!
