Like my dress card the other day, this idea came somewhat last minute. My first 3D project took a ridiculous amount of time so I knew I needed to make something with a neat concept but wouldn't take me a million hours! This is what I came up with and I was a happy girl.
Yes, I know first let me explain the photos...then the process. When you submit for Artisan you can't submit a photo of yourself. So, yes, this is Adam and his sister in our family tree frame. And yes, I love all four of my children BUT four frames didn't look as good in the frame AND my mom had used photos of Cole, SO three children and sortof a set of parents! You will never look at this photo the same way now that you know that:) (Thank you Sandra and Adam for letting me use your photos like this:)
OK, onto the frame. I used MDS to create the message along the bottom as well as the frame along the right hand side and bottom. I also used MDS and the "branched out" download to create the tree. I printed out the tree on card stock, then traced it onto the Basic Black. It's hard to see in the photo, but I embossed all the words from the Wonderful Favourites stamp set in Black embossing powder on the tree (words such as sister, mother, cousin, uncle).
I attached the photos to the bevelled windows and secured the ribbon on with the Antique Brads. The final step was to punch out a bunch of the flowers using the Itty Bitty Punch Pack in Pink Pirouette and Pretty In Pink. After attaching them, I used the pearls in the middles just to add some dimension.
Thank you so much for stopping by today and I'll be back tomorrow with my final Artisan card.
