Hello again, Welcome back. I'm so honored to have so many of you visit to share in my love of creativity. I'm also honored to part of the wonderful Word Art Wednesday design team. Karen works so hard to keep the challenge blog going and to line up sponsors who so generously share their product with us and the challenge winners. This week's sponsor is Taylored Expressions!
Not only does the winner of this week's challenge get a prize from Taylored Expressions, but the design team also received product from Taylored Expressions to create with. I was so excited to get started with my Taylored Expressions product. I've never used TE products before, but as a first timer, I am in love!
For my card, I used two different die cutting plates from Taylored Expressions. "Frame in Frame 2" is the cutting plate that I used to create the scalloped border around the Word Art. I also used the "Arbor Accessories" cutting plate to cut the vine and small flowers on my card.
I used the Taylored Expressions cutting plates in my Cuttle Bug Machine. The cutting plates worked very well with my machine and only needed a few passes to achieve a clean, sharp cut. I love the detail of the cuts, even on the small flowers.
I actually cut the end off the vine to create more of a curled vine around the Word Art rather than to have it in the shape of an arbor, as it originally was.
I adhered the vine using very small pieces of dimensional foam tape. I wanted it to be slightly raised. I also added some distress glitter to the flowers and a pearl drop to the centers.
I invite you to come play along at Word Art Wednesday for your chance to win some Talyored Expressions product! Remember that if you're on IG to tag us #wawchallenge for your chance to featured! I can't wait to see what you all come up with!
