Crafter's Companion ~ Quintessentially English

 Welcome back friends,

Today's card was inspired by the Crafter's Companion 12 x 12" paper pad named "Quintessentially English" Looking through my stash I decided to use the Modern Scallops Edge'ables die set as the focal of this design. 

The size of the die is 6" long so I cut my card to 6"x12" and I cut the die on each side before scoring and folding the card. I then layered a coordinating designer paper from the Crafter's Companion 12x12" Quintessential English" paper. I then decided to use one of the beautiful Sharon Callis Vintage Lace Frames which fit perfectly in the center. But I wanted to tie in the leaves so I added an extra layer from the same paper pack cut with the Stitch Edge Oval dies. That is exactly what the card needed. For the flowers I have used the Peony Double Sided Dies. For the sentiment I used one from the newly released Sara Signature Caring Thoughts Stamp sets named "With a Grateful Heart"

Crafter's Companion Heavy Weight Acetate

This last photo shows how I used the Heavy Weight Acetate. I attached it to the back of the scalloped dies to give the card more strength so it is able to stand up easily. It is hard to photograph but I think this will give you a better idea on how I used the 6x6" piece of acetate. I attached it at top and bottom with glue dots.

Thank you everyone for following my work. I appreciate you all and I hope I have inspired you to get crafty!
