pti may blog hop...
Hello friends!! Happy Saturday!! I have a card to share that I made for this month's PTI blog hop. Each month I tell myself that I'm going to participate in the PTI blog hop and then the 25th of the month arrives and I haven't done a thing. This month I was determined to get a jump on things and get my card made in advance and I did... YAY!! This month the challenge is to use one of the yummy color combos that Nichole put together and I decided to go with the combo of Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise & Ripe Avocado and put together this little number:
Inside of Card
I was cruising around the blog-o-sphere one day and stopped at the blog of the wildly talented Linda McLain and my jaw dropped when I saw this card. She used a newly released MFT Die-namics die call Chicken Wire and I knew that what she had done with that die would word perfectly with PTI's cover plate dies because of the similarities between the dies. Following Linda's instructions found here I cut a piece of cardstock 4 1/4" by 5 3/8" and then scored the cardstock at 5 1/2". This leaves a 1/8" piece to attach the die cut front to the back of the card. The front piece was die cut using the Quatrefoil cover plate and then attached to the Ripe Avocado base using 1/8" Scor-Tape. Then I got to work die cutting and stamping all the floral images using PTI's Cutting Garden stamps and dies. The patterned paper is PTI's Bitty Dot Basics in Hibiscus Burst and Orange Zest. I finished off the outside of the card with some Summer Sunrise saddle stitched ribbon and a few gems. The interior of the card was finished with additional die cut, some Hibiscus Burst bitty dot paper and the sentiment.
