Shaped cards are big right now, it seems and I've seen quite a few that call for using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Grands. They ARE quite grand and I like them, but my pocketbook does not, so I try to find ways to use what I have. I do own quite a few of the nestie sets that are regular size and for this card I took the largest die from the Labels 4 set and traced around its outside for the largest layer on the white cardstock. For the green striped layer I cut a strip of paper so that it would just barely slide through the die and fed just one end through the half the die so I would get a cut on one end, but not both . . .I am going to have to post a picture to make it clear I think.
I have punched daisy shaped behind the prima roses, not sure you can see them. And I used a large Martha Stewart edge punch for a floral 'fence' where my little Frieda is picking flowers. (from The Craft's Meow).
I paper pieced Frieda and colored her with copics. Thanks for looking and hope you can play along! The rest of the design team blogs can be found as listed below!
And whooops! I forgot to mention that the Divas are looking for a guest designer! You will find all the deets on the blog link I posted above, so give it a shot!
