What a Good Morning Magnolia Edging fun card.  I love the edging die that comes in the Magnolia Memory Dies, they add a lovely surprise on any project, wouldn’t you agree?

I wanted to change it up when I was playing with this Magnolia Lane suite of products.  I started with the edging first, not my usual direction, but I was intrigued.  The Mossy Meadow card stock base was the first on the front flap and liked it.  So, more is better, right?  I added a layer of Rich Razzleberry card stock, nice because it added a layering element and then I did one more step and embossed it using the Subtle Embossing Folder for some texture.

Hmm, liking it so far…what else can we do with this cool edge?  How about a liner for a triple design?  After all, the eye settles with odd numbers. Edged and put on the inside of the card using Whisper White card stock.  Okay, I like it!  My design process may be like yours or completely different.  I don”t often know where I am going when I sit down to make a project.  And definitely in this case, it was designed on the fly with my own design process…sure, lol!

Now to the focal point.  I had previously used Crumb Cake card stock and with my Embossing Buddy, Versamark, White Embossing Powder, Heat tool and Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.  One that was all done, I cut it out with the Magnolia Memory Dies.

On to coloring this beautiful flower.  I used an Aqua Painter, the Rich Razzleberry stamp pad and the Mossy Meadow stamp pad for a nice color washing look.  Did you notice I didn’t fully color the flower petals?  I tried to add a little depth and shadowing by layering the ink, letting it dry and adding more.

One last little touch for more depth and texture.  You know me, I just have to have some of both on my projects.  A little bow added a bit more white without overpowering the look.  I used the 1/8″ Whisper White ribbon that I realize now has recently retired.  You could certainly substitute with a variety of options.

So, what do you think of the triple layering of the edging?  Would you considering using it on a card?  I think it turned out fun.  Would you consider it A Crowning Creation?  For an extra touch, you could use the same edging on the enveloped, too!

I hope you enjoyed this fun card and thanx for stopping by.
