The Most Beautiful Border Die. Ever!


Hi and Good Morning everyone, back again today, sharing another card created and inspired by so many gorgeous Cheery Lynn Designs dies. :)

I used an 8 x 8 inch blank card base for this card, and layered K&Co papers and white American Crafts cardstock, and a stamped image from Lili of the Valley.

I created the bottom border using in my opinion, the Most Beautiful Border Die. Ever! - Fall Leaf Mesh Border, its just stunning.  I layered it to shadow against green cardstock, and also added an additional layer of leaves in green for contrast.  The top paper panel is edged in the Anastasia Lace border, and and the base doily is the Sunflower Doily.  My image is matted onto the matching Fall Leaf Doily, and backed with green card cut from the angel wing included.

I created the flowers using the Black Eyed Susan flower strip and the smaller petals are from the Daisy Flower strip.  I sanded this coral coloured card to soften and add shading.  Finally I added some pearls for a little bit of bling.

All dies used on this card are:

B325 - Fall Leaf Mesh Border
DL249 - Fall Leaf Doily
B338 - Black Eyed Susan Flower Strip
B259 - Daisy Flower Strip
B117 - Fanciful Flourish
DL181 - Large Sunflower Doily
B136 - Anastasia Lace Border.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and I hope you have a smashing week!
