I'm putting off the evil hour when I will have to go shovel our way out of the driveway after yesterday's snow. Not fun.
I've got two cards to share today. Both have a popped up frame that was inspired by Sandy Allnock's card HERE. She is just amazing and full of inspiration, but you probably already know that.
I had made the tag a while ago and it was sitting on my desk waiting for the right card to come along. The image and sentiment are from Purple Onion. I used Distress Inks smooshed on my work surface to create the background, then die cut with SSS stitched frames. The middle frame is popped up with foam tape. I am in love with this technique!! Thank you, Sandy!!
I used the same technique but with patterned paper. This paper is from an American Crafts pad. I used prismacolors to color the Purple Onion image. Little Rosie was just the breath of springtime I needed! The banner is from Lawn Fawn. I stamped and white embossed on vellum. I added a stamped and embossed heart as well. I decided to keep it pretty plain other than that; no sentiment on the outside of the card this time.
I know I will be using this background technique over and over again!!
Ugh, my back and shoulders are already hurting just thinking about that driveway!
Have a good day!
