Create Along With Us: March

Hi there! It's time again for 'Create Along With Us' During PTI's release, we are challenged
to case the talented designers, showcasing all the
wonderful new product.
My card came from Betsy's Veldman's card featuring a new corner stamp, coming
out this month.

Betsy embossed her lovely card front with a die, giving her centered image just that extra 'pow'!
Loved it! Loved too, the florals circling the framed sentiment.

Here's my case:

If you click on the products they link directly to PapertreyInk's stamps dies and inks.

Embossed frame is the outer die from Papertrey Ink - Mix & Mat: Pretty Brackets Die
Now the corner frame took a bit of doing. It's part of Papertrey Ink - Grand Finale Die,
(couldn't find it in their shop. Could be discontinued, but the dies are available.)
I masked the bottom of the die, stamping just the top to resemble a corner.
The florals are a mix of Grand Finale and the new Anniversary set:
And a sentiment from a new favorite:
Penned Elegance Stamp Set, so many beautifully scripted sentiments in this set!

Here's a list of the inks I used:

My thank you card goes in the mail today to a special aunt who never forgets a
birthday or anniversary. She always tucks away some money for pizza, she says, in
her cards. Such a thoughtful thing after 48 years of marriage!

Play along at PTI's blog through Sunday!

  10. Hi Nancy, just found your blog link over at Kara's when she shared photos of your group gathering, along with the lovely cards she had made. Zipped over to enjoy your case of Betsey, and it is so pretty. I like your flourished edges even better than Betsey's, but love the pastel colors of your spring flowers on both cards! Just became your newest follower, and always look forward to making a new friend. TFS
