Clean and Simple Saturday - Sweetly Framed

Good morning friends and happy Saturday to you! Today I have a fun little card to share with you...

This card was inspired by a store bought card (I know, gasp, right?) that my husband gave to me. I always liked it and pulled it out recently and thought "I bet I could make something similar"...

I know I have used the Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper in not one, but two, posts this week...but I am really loving the soft prettiness of the designs!

I used my Squares Collection Framelits to make my frame and filled it in with leaves die cut using the Little Leaves Sizzlits Die. I used the die to die cut the stems of leaves in two colors, Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi. Then I placed the one stem of leaves, cut in Pear Pizzazz, into the frame and carefully glued leaves cut from the other stem of leaves in Wild Wasbi right on top of the first set of leaves! I also carefully spliced an extra stem of leaves in Wild Wasabi in, just to fill it in a bit.

And that's it! Add a simple sentiment, this one is from the stamp set A Dozen Thoughts and is an absolute favorite of mine...I just L-O-V-E all the fonts in this set!

Here is a sneak peek of a little project I have been working on...

Please check back on Tuesday for my post or to sign up to have my blog posts delivered to your inbox so you don't forget...I am so excited to share it with you!

Thanks and have a great day!
