Nature's Prints in a Tic- Tac-Toe Challenge -The Paper Players #593

 After the thunderstorms yesterday it is much cooler outside - perfect for touching up the garden.  There is still a lot of debris everywhere thanks to a powerful storm that moved through here about 10 days ago.

This card was made for the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge at The Paper Players#593, using the following 3 elements in the row across the top:  "birthday, embossing, ribbons". The Nature's Prints bundle was used for this challenge.

This A2 side fold card has a Night of Navy base, layered with Basic White.

The framed embossed floral is adhered to this card front using dimensionals.

The frame was die cut using the new "Fabulous Frame Dies", die cutting it twice - once in Night of Navy, and once in Basic White. The die cut frame has  both a stitched and an embossed edge. To create the layered frame look, the Night of Navy frame was fussy cut to the stitched line and the remaining embossed frame was adhered to the Basic White frame.

Behind the frames was added a piece of Night of Navy card stock embossed with the Tasteful Texture Embossing folder.

hree floral images from "Nature's Prints" were embossed with White embossing powder on Night of Navy card stock and die cut using the Nature's Prints die. They were added to the inside of the frame - the middle one directly to the embossed card stock and the other two with dimensionals.

A bow made with 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon was added to the top of the floral stems using a glue dot.

The sentiment was stamped with Night of Navy ink and embossed with clear embossing powder before being separated into two words. After fussy cutting each word around the perimeter, they were added to the card front using dimensionals.

Supplies Used:

Stamp:  Nature's Print

Inks:  Versa mark, Night of Navy

Papers:  Night of Navy, Basic White

Accessories:  Nature's Print dies, Fabulous Frames die, White embossing powder, Clear embossing powder, Tasteful Texture embossing folder, dimensionals.
