Floral Frame

Hi Everyone! Here is a another Spring card I made today. We have about 6 inches of snow and it is now sleeting! This is a major storm for us in the South. I am looking forward to Spring! I have been playing with Winterfest challenges over at Two peas in a Bucket. It has been a lot of fun! This is the card I made for the Five in One challenge where we are to use 5 different stamps on our card. I have been wanting to play with my Tapestry stamps lately and this was the perfect challenge to use them.  My TIP is if you want to have different colors on your stamp, use different colors of markers where you want color and then huff on your stamp to moisten a bit and stamp. Now you have the colors where you want them.


Here  you can see the stitching around the oval. I used magenta metallic thread. This is not my favorite thing to do, but I am glad I did.



I used an embossing folder and then popped the oval piece on top and added the image in the middle.


                                                  Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
