Fairies and Frogs Card

I’m bringing out some previously unblogged projects. This one is from CHA Summer 2011, featuring Graphic 45′s Once Upon a Springtime papers. The frame around the focal image was made with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Ivory Photo Corners, the flower by Prima Marketing Flowers, and the die from Spellbinders  Edgeabilities.

Some people find the Graphic 45 paper intimidating, with the larger images, but I have found them fun to work with, they pretty much eliminate the need for stamps or other embellishments because you can use  so much of the paper.

In this case, I trimmed the image then created a mat that was about 3/4 inch larger than the image on 2 sides, then layered photo corners along the edge and in the corners. The rest is layering of papers. The green ribbon is a piece from the remnant bin (love those!)

Thanks for coming by today!
