Colorful Crochet

Julie Warner - justwritedesigns - https://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.comAm I late? I hope I can still get in to the Tea Party (MMTPT151), but I bet I’ll have to sneak in the back way. See my card has corners and it’s supposed to be round. I tried, rahly I did (said in my best Katherine Hepburn voice-which is hard for a southern girl, dontcha know?)

I started out round…you can see by the center layers. But this card just wanted to be square. Who am I to argue? So I’ll just be hangin’ out by the back door and hopefully I won’t be alone.

All images are Our Daily Bread designs. I stamped the crochet circle image 3 times, colored two and cut them out in layers. One water colored flower only. Two was the the inside circle, cut w/ a Spellbinders circle. Third was the whole image cut w/ an ODBD matching crochet circle die.

For the big circle and square bg, I used water colors to make the bg and then stamped the crochet bg on top. I stamped and cut (w/ the matching ODBD border die) 4 strips of the crochet border to make the frame. As I was putting it together, I got to looking at the negative strips and decided to use them as well. So I added a little color to them and attached them offset behind the crochet borders. The sentiment is also on one of the negative strips. The finished card measures 5″ square.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Beautiful cards. I was very impressed with the Love Forever Friends Card. Absolutely beautiful. The pop-up Wedding Cake one is pretty, too. This is my first visit to your blog and I will return,
