On the Pink Paislee blog last week was all about designer details. I love little details on my projects, and used a few of them on these cards.
For the first card, my details were the circles punched to form a frame, the USA die, chipboard piece adhered with foam adhesive, and the silver thread around to frame it. Simple details, but I love the whole look of this with the blues and greys.
Next I used another die, but cut it from the base of the card, backed with pattern paper, and hand stitched around it. I added machine stitching in a similar red to the embellishments for that added pop of color.
The last card, I punched several stars in rainbow colors. It would have been just fine adhering as is, but I added watercolors to go behind them, filled in with a few more embellishments to match the colors. The adventure lines up perfectly with this. I left the white space at the bottom since the top is so heavy.
