Fusion: French Twist


Last week, my best friend asked me to make a couple of Mother's Day cards for her.
I shared one of them here.
For the second one, I used the latest Fusion Challenge: French Twist:



When I started making my card, I was planning on following the sketch,
but a few challenges with lining up the Altenew Vintage Flowers stamp set
had me change my plans.

Here's my card:


I stamped my Altenew Vintage Flowers in lemon tart, harvest gold, summer sunrise
and onyx black onto a piece of American Craft patterned paper.
Then, I diecut it (as well as some smokey shadow cardstock)
using PTI's Shaker Shapes: Squares die.
I layered these together and stamped my sentiment
(from Wplus9's Mother's Day Bouquet.)

I'm also linking this card up to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:

Thanks for looking!

Wonderful card, Leigh! Love these pretty roses in all their glorious yellows stamped on the 'handwritten' dp. And the die cut was a great idea. Just beautiful! Love this!! Bev

This is stunning! Love this color combo and love it paired with the crisp white layered card base. Love your idea of die cutting the frame and keeping both pieces intact. Adds so much character and charm. And seriously love the text print, too. So pretty!
