Papertrey May blog hop
Hi everyone. Bonus post for today. It is the blog hop over in the Papertrey forum tonight. I had the date wrong so you should see me scrambling around the house so I can get this post in time.
So, on to my project now. I started out with my summer sunrise card base. I added a lemon tart layer with a 1/8" border around it. I then took my white stampers select and cut it so that there would be a 1/8" border of lemon tart around it. I drew in guide lines for myself on the back with 1/4" inch all around it. I scored along the guide lines using my scor-pal so that I had a frame around the white. I then made the diagonal grid lines by turning my paper so that it would be diagonal and scored my lines turned the paper 90 degrees and scored the diagonal lines so that I would have diamond shapes. I stamped the littlest bee from the PT honey bees set in the middle of some of the diamonds in both lemon and sunrise. I stamped the main bee image and the sentiment onto a white square made a border around that with my scor-pal and matted that on lemon. I scored the lemon strip in the middle 3 times along the edges and in the middle and then adhered my main image onto that and attached everything to my white diamond layer. I finished off the card by adding an eyelet in each corner and giving it some sparkle with my clear spica glitter pen. Hope you enjoy and I sure hope that I made this clear as I am typing so fast right now LOL.
