Papertrey Inc- Make It Monday #12: Line Frame 101

I had so much fun with this challenge! I was able to use a few of my favorite things (again)- PTI Distressed Dots PP, adhesive black pearls, and Beautiful Blooms II #3 dies. Besides, I love the line frame look and have made cards in the past with this technique.

I am really happy with how these cards turned out. The sayings are from various PTI sets and the stem is from Spiral Bouquet. The flowers are cut out of the white layer to show though to the PP in the second later. Finally, I used (a lot of) foam tape between the layers to give the card some dimension.

Hope you enjoy all the bright Spring colors! Have a fabulous weekend!



Supplies: Stem & Saying- Spiral Bouquet, Other Sayings from Signature Greetings, Communique Curves Sentiments. Distressed Dots PP, colors-Pure Poppy, Harvest Gold, Ripe Avocado, Scarlet Jewel, Flat back adhesive pearls (unknown), Beautiful Blooms II #3 Dies.

  9. What a nice set for a gift. I love the punched out flowers. Maybe I do need some distressed dots. I've been fighting the urge to buy it. You may have just pushed me over the edge.
