Just an Expression

This Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper (DSP) is so beautiful, you want to just frame it. That is exactly what I did. I did lay an intricate die cut on top, but the DSP is working its magic. What do you think? 

   Artistically Inked

   Evening Evergreen A-2
   Just Jade 5-1/4 x 4
   Basic White 5-1/2 x 4-1/8, 5-1/4 x 4, 3-1/2 x 3-3/4
   Expressions in Ink DSP 5-1/4 x 4

   Evening Evergreen

   Die Cutting
   Dry Embossing

   Potted Succulents Dies
   Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder
   Stitched Rectangle Framelits Dies
   Lovely Labels Pick a Punch
   Bumblebee Trinkets
   2021-2023 In-Color Jewels
   Paper Pumpkin White & Gold Twine
   Foam Adhesive Sheets
   Glue Dots

First, I took my Just Jade panel and dry embossed it using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. 

I then lined up the largest and third largest stitched rectangle framelits and die cut the embossed frame. I used washi tape to hold the die cuts in place.

I ran the Basic White 5-1/2 x 4-1/8 panel through the die cutting machine using the Potted Succulents Dies. I adhered this die cut on the back of the Just Jade frame. I used liquid adhesive.

I then placed a foam adhesive strip around the edges of the frame and adhered the DSP onto it. I then adhered this panel onto the Evening Evergreen card base.

I stamped and punched the edges of my sentiment using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. I adhered it onto the card front using glue dots.

I added a bit of white and gold twine, a bumblebee trinket, and some jewels to the card front.

Lastly, I adhered the 5-1/4 x 4 Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

I was inspired to make this card after viewing Jacque Williams Expressions in Ink post.

    1. Thank you, Fonda. I was inspired by someone else's card. I need to go and find it and give them credit here. She has a video as well. Even though I made it my own, it is very similar. Thank you Fonda for stopping by here today. Stay healthy!
