So I decided to use my new framelits! This particular set is called Floral Frames!!
These framelits are so much fun to use, and sooo easy! They work with the Big Shot! If you haven't tried them you really need to! They are great for "nesting"-meaning they come in several close sizes so you can build a design! They are small & easy to store too!
So here's the card I made!
Sorry for the shadow! I wasn't in the best lighting!!! I used the very lovely Floral District Designer Series Paper! The coordinating cardstock Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight! Not sure if you can tell, but I distressed the flower petals to give them some dimension!
What's that in the middle you ask? That's one of the adorable new In-Color Dahlias in Raspberry Ripple. Cute, huh? I decided to use up some of the discontinued ribbon I got for Sale-A-Bration in Lucky Limeade. It's a shame-I love this ribbon!
Notice the background of the card! That's the new Fancy Fan embossing folder! So cool! And if you dig through the catalog, there is some DSP that actually has that same pattern in it! I'm not going to tell you which one though! You're gonna have to search for it!
The sentiment is stamped with the new Itty Bitty Banners stamp set, and cut out with the new Bitty Banners Framelits! Wasn't sure this set was for me, but now I love it! So nice to have! The stamp set looks good even without being cut out with the framelits! This one I stamped in the Rich Razzleberry & inked the edges to make it "pop" since I used the same color as the background.
So overall, I like my first card from my first order from the new 2012*2013 Catalog!
I hope you like it too!!!!
