2015-07-03; Elegant Edges & Country Life


As promised, I’m using up additional mats that I cut from the cartridge Elegant Edges. This one was cut at 5″. I still had the same supplies on my desk so I used the same DP from yesterday’s design. Besides; they look good together.

The frame that was cut was not perfect. The large sentiment actually helped in this case to cover up the imperfections.

There are two stamps on this design; the sentiment and the floorboards. Both are by Stampassions.

I did notice a problem with a few of the cuts on the layers of the chair. On layer 1, the shift key is supposed to cut the cats collar. No, no, it didn’t. It looks like they are the tiniest eyes you’ve ever seen. I left them right there on the mat. On Layer 2 neither the regular or shift keys cut properly. They too were tossed as they were too tiny do do anything with. They didn’t even cut out of the paper they were so small.

You can see that I cut a 3-4 layers for the chair and shaded it, and 3 layers of the kitty. I pieced together some DP and card stock to create a room with wall paper.

And one last look before you go on about your day….

I have one last mat to use up, it looks to be about 4″ square so I’ll think about it and see what I can come up with.

    Great card! Love the layers. Good save on the frame. I hate when my cuts get chewed instead of cut.
