This card did NOT go where I was steering it but I enjoyed the ride, anyway.
I started with one of the fancy diecuts, blocked out the filigree and stamped a little bird cottage in the center circle. I colored it with the custom palette in alcohol markers and toned the white filigree with Distress Ink.
Then I chose the striped paper and... nothing. I kept trying different arrangements of papers - both solids and patterns - to back the image but either the diecut was just floating out there or the mest of the filigree was covered somehow.
Then I looked at the sticker sheets in the kit and found this border sticker. By weaving it creatively throught the filigree and sticking it to the backing paper it held the diecut in place and featured it beautifully.
I cut the sentiment block to fit perfectly between the sticker strips. Foam tape is used under the diecut but only at the tips and the stamped center.
