Oh I am in love with this card!!
I stared with an adorable gingham & heart inspiration at Inspired By.
This is probably my 3rd attempt at a card. In my other attempts I tried to work in other challenges but they just were NOT working. So I dropped everything else and really focused on the inspiration. What I loved was all the white with the pop of gingham – and the stitching. So that is what I did.
I’m sorta hearted out (not so much from creating them but from seeing them) – so I knew I didn’t want to do a heart. I pulled out a flower die that I think went really well with gingham. I die cut a flower from the gingham square and stitched the square to my focal panel. I topped off the flower center with a wood button.
When I started putting it all together though I decided the flower really should be die-cut through the focal panel too – for the cool shadow effect.
As one final touch I polka-dot embossed a square and placed it on the card base under the negative flower die to add some texture.
Thanks for taking a peek!
