Be Still

YEA!, it's Friday.  It's been a rather relaxing week back from vacation (once all those mounds of laundry were done).  What I want to know is why does time away always go so fast?  It seems you arrive at your destination and then suddenly it's time to leave.  Not fair!

Today I made a shaped card using a die from Docrafts (Rectangle Parenthesis #2).  I made a standard card, placed the die above the fold and cut it.  I then used the same die to cut the patterned paper which extends above the fold so all you see is the entire diecut.  I used the next smallest die to cut both black and white pieces.  Now, here comes the fun part.  Have you ever die-cut a diecut?  I took the white piece and die-cut it again using a die from Spellbinders Labels 10 (take care to line it up evenly to preserve the symmetry).  When layered over the black piece, it gives you a very unique frame.

I stamped the girl image from the Phyllis Harris I Will Give You My Heart kit and colored her with Prismacolor pencils. Before adhering her with foam tape, I tied some twine around the card.  I added a sentiment I received from a Unity grab bag I won playing along with Friends With Flair.

I will be playing along with Friends With Flair again today.  Hope you enjoy!
