  2. It is a truly 'beautiful' card, did you cut the large word from foam to make it dimensional or is it the shading round it which gives that appearance? However you did it - it's lovely.

  17. I love the way you combined "distress" and "elegance" to create a wonderful card. I tried the "ruffled" look with washi tape and was not too thrilled with the results but your card offers me the perfect alternative for the same look, with less mess too! Love it!

    1. Hi Katina,
      The easiest way to ruffle is to put double sided tape onto the edge of the printed paper and then ruffle...this way you can glue it directly to the back of the card layer...
      Hope this makes sense :-)

  25. Your use of the printed page and the torn edges was a real coo! What a perfect way to offset the delicate die cut frame inside. Your composition is just perfect. TFS The words die cut and stamped are so cool and versatile. Love the blogs and inspiration.

  28. What a "beautiful" (pardon the pun!) use of the word! I love the ruffled page - did you really stitch it or glue?? Simply wonderful and very appreciated by whoever it's given to! Thank you for sharing.

    1. Hi Dorothy, I put double sided tape onto the frontside of the printed paper and then ruffled...this way you can stick it to the back of the paper without need of extra tape/glue.
      Hope my explanation makes sense :-)
