Another VSN challenge last weekend was to create a card that shows off something physical on your card. I decided to use a sentiment that talks about Dance . I used die cuts that were in my little box of die cuts I cut and then didn’t use, so the card came together pretty quickly.

The sentiment is from Verve’s Beautiful You. It was stamped in Jet Black Archival Ink on white cardstock, cut and embossed with the second largest Floral Oval Nestabilities die.

White cardstock cut and embossed with a Lace Doily Accents die was adhered underneath a 2″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Head over Heels paper . The strip was adhered to  3 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Handmade Lilybeedesigns paper . The edges were sanded and stitched before gingham ribbon was tied around the top edge of the horizontal strip. the paper was then adhered to the card base, a 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstoc, folded in half.

The sentiment oval was adhered to the center of the card with dimensional foam adhesive. Rhinestones and a Linen fabric flower, created with Bitty Blossoms dies, finish off the card. And yes, that flower was made already as well. I am sure you know how that goes…lol

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