SCS Ways to Use it Challenge - with Edgeabilities

Another SplitCoastStampers challenge card – the Ways to Use It challenge, this week to use a frame of some sort. It was inspired by Deb (who was asking me questions about Edgeabilities and just uploaded a beautiful project) and Harriet (whose immediate reaction to the “frame” challenge was to use Edgeabilities.) So, here’s mine.

I used Papertrey Ink Stamper's Select white cardstock to emboss my daisies. (I’ve had a few questions on embossing Edgeabilities. They are the only thing I emboss with my BIGkick that I have to add extra pieces of cardstock to, to make the embossing deep enough.) I colored them with chalk. I know Spellbinders suggests leaving the die in place while coloring, but I prefer to remove the die before carefully coloring. The sympathy stamp is from Paper Inspirations, and I stamped it with Baja Breeze on Soft Sky. The trim piece on the bottom is also Soft Sky, and I embossed it with a Cuttlebug border folder. The daisies towards the bottom of the card are on Pop Dots.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!

This sketch with the boarder-nestie is just lovely. I can see this easily as a wedding card too! I don't have any of these...yet.

Hope you don't have to use it for a sympathy card anytime soon!
