Spring is in the Air



Happy Thursday!  Robin here with my Dies R Us design of the week. This week I chose to use Memory Box Toulouse Background and Impression Obsession's Square Cutout Border dies as my starting point for my card. Having a die, like the Toulouse Background, with a frame built in makes designing a card easy; it's almost done before you know what happened.  I added a contrast piece of CS behind the Square Cutout Border which was placed behind the Toulouse Background.



I incorporated the long leaf stems into the Square Cutout Border with a few snips here and there, just to make it look like they were growing through a fence. TIP: Don't hesitate to trim or snip your die cuts to fit your design or idea. A strip of heavy weight vellum is stamped with a simple sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps. My card base is one of my favorites from Neenah, called Columns; a simple texture in the CS that adds that little something.

Don't forget DRU is having a Design Team Call for our NEW Challenge Blog! AND stop by our shop for the latest in dies!

Until next week… thanks for stopping by, Robin!

  2. A beautiful card, Robin! I love the textured cardstock behind your dies as it really makes them pop out! And stamping your thank you on vellum is a great way to add your sentiment without covering up any of the beautiful dies! Great design!!
