One of our CenterStage Spotlight Designers Deb Felts is hosting the current Potluck Friday at Stamp TV: to make something soft and feminine. On today's card, I used the "Festive Frame" set, stamping it on white, and coloring in the borders, then colored and cut out flowers and leaves from "A Year of Flowers" to pop up over the poinsettias and pine at the corners. If you color the poinsettia and greenery underneath green and color the berries the same color as the popped up flowers, they will really blend seamlessly with your new arrangement, without needing to worry about covering up the entire image. Hope this sample helps you find more ways to use the beautiful borders in the new frame set, I know many of you have "A Year of Flowers" (or plan on ordering it for the matching poinsettia), and these sets work so well together. I used some adhesive pearls and Silver Lining Cardstock to make it even "girlier".
The purple theme and ribbon is part of Deb's dual challenge: to create cards for the family of Somer Thompson, the little girl who was kidnapped and murdered recently in Jacksonville, Florida, where Deb lives. I used the sentiments from Gina's "Not Forgotten" for the inside and out. This child and family has been on my mind so much in the past couple weeks and I am holding my own children tighter as I pray for this family and community's healing, and that the killer will be found. If you can find time to send a card to them, it would be so appreciated, as would be your spreading the word about the card request.
Please include a purple ribbon. Your card can be mailed here:
