I've got two new Pretty Cover Plate cards for you today. Both use just pieces from the cover plate instead of the whole, leaving the others to be used on other projects. Sometimes, one or two is all you need.
This card uses the second and inner most frames of the Pretty Cover Plate. I cut the one out of Lovely Lady (YAY for new colors!!!!!) and the inner most panel was cut out of Dawn's new Peonies on Parade Coloring Sheets. (Oh man, these things are great. I'm very much hooked. Great for an easy creative fix when you need one.) Because of the open aperture of the frame die, I could position it where ever I wanted on the coloring sheet. I turned it this way and that before I cut. It ended up being turned a full 90 degrees on the sheet to get this look. I then colored it with Copics to keep myself busy and happy during the Super Bowl:).
Both of these cuts were positioned on a True Black card front. I stamped an image from the 2015 Birthday Tags on Aqua Mist cardstock and mounted on a vellum cut of Limitless Layers Ovals. Very mailable and stylish card.
Next up, using the Pretty Cover Plate again, I wanted to show how the outer most frame could be used with all your other existing cover plates to give a contrasting frame of color along the edge. In this case, I used Sweet Blush card stock to frame out a Stormy Seas cut of the Peony Cover Plate. Sweet Blush, Melon Berry, and Mint Julep inks are sponged onto a white card base to highlight areas of the peony. Stacked Sentiments helps me out by providing a stylish sentiment in a fade from Soft Stone to Stormy Seas.
Thanks for joining me today. Head back to Nichole's blog to see more inspiration from the products being featured today. And I'll be back tomorrow with more cards.
If you are interested in adding any of these products to your collection, the new February release is available at www.papertreyink.com at 10 PM EST, Feb 15th.
