Buy One Get One Free
I decided to shoot these two cards together because I felt they were both (mainly the background card) a little weak.
These are made using the same die, card and backing paper and are also, roughly, the same size.
Firstly the card I like is this one, its a very simple card made with backing paper from My Minds Eye ( I managed to buy a whopping Antique floral paper stack on my travels) This is shaded with broken china distress ink and double mounted with white PMD Hammered card and foam tape.
The topper is made with Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Squares die cut as a frame and the centre part stamped with the sentiment. This is from Creative Expressions, I think, and says "Plant seeds of kindness and your garden of friends will grow"
Finally I wrapped a strip of ribbon behind the frame with a bow above but under the sentiment.
The second card has the same backing paper however this is placed inside the card with a frame cut out of the front. Then I layered, using foam tape, each size of the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Squares die cut in Teal and white and rotated with each alternating colour.
I think its obvious which of the BOGOF's I prefer, you?
