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.
