Page Maps

Today I, along with some other members of the Flourishes teams, have the honor of providing a sample for Page Maps' September card sketches. Here's the sketch Becky sent to me:

And here's my card. I'm using an image from Flourish's Tag Lines set for my sentiment element, combined with a doily, some seam binding, and some sweet patterned papers.

Be sure to check out what the other designers have using their respective sketches. 


Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Stamps: Tag Lines (Flourishes)
Paper: Classic White card stock, Basic Black (SU!); Blissful 6 x 6 (Authentique)

OK, on to my cards. I did up two of the flowers in the set to show you today. Partly because they're all so gorgeous, and partly because I wanted to show you how the sentiments work equally as well inside or out. First up is the poppy. I stamped it on Fossil card stock and colored it with Copic markers. Love the colors I ended up with. I used a very simple layout for this one, but I love how it turned out. I think this one could even be a masculine card.

Here's the inside with the image stamped off to the side and another sentiment from the set.

For my second card, I went a little vintage-y and definitely girlie:) I colored the image with Copic markers, but then cut it out and popped it up for dimension. I used my Simply Scallops Medium Die-namics die for the top scalloped border and added some lace and ribbon to finish it off.

The inside of this one shows how I switched the sentiments up. See how well they work either place?

Alrighty, then, that's it for me today--hope to see you back tomorrow for another teaser day!
