Tasteful Backgrounds

These are two cards we made at my monthly stamping class a couple of weeks ago.  They are a take on the Floating Frame technique by Jennifer McGuire but I didn’t make them floating because the spaces were too small for Dimensionals.

To make both of these cards I first took a 5.5″ x 4.25″ piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it five times in different places using a die from Tasteful Backgrounds.  Then I took two dies from the Stitched Rectangles and cut out the piece in the middle and around the edges.  The middle piece was used to make the card on the top and the outside piece was used to make the card on the bottom.

The colors on the top card are are Rich Razzleberry and Garden Green.  The flower was made using the Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape.  This Washi Tape is a big roll of petals.  We used six of them to make the flower.  I cut a small circle using the 3/4″ Circle Punch and attached the tips of the petals on top of it.  Then I turned the flower over and used my Embossing Buddy to take the stickiness out of the edges of the petals so they would not adhere to the cardstock and look flat. I put a Clear Faceted Gem in the middle of the flower and adhered it to my card.  I stamped the sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings in Rich Razzleberry ink and punched it out using the Classic Label Punch.

The colors I used for the second card were Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and Mango Melody.  I attached the piece I had left over from the first card and attached it to a piece of Pool Party cardstock I had cut put using the Stitched Rectangle dies.  I stamped the cake from the stamp set called Piece Of Cake in Mango Melody and punched it out using the Cake Builder Punch.  I punched out the cake stand in Mango Melody cardstock.  The sentiment is from Beautiful Friendship. Lastly, I added some Glitter Enamel Dots for some color and sparkle.

It was fun to get two cards out of one die cut!
