PTI Create Along With Us

Card by Maile Belles
Maile Belles pretty much always inspires me, so no surprise I'm casing her for my PTI Create Along With Us entry.  I've had PTI Boutique Borders: Birthday for quite awhile--mostly just used the sentiments.  Last month when Splits: Just a Note was released, it gave me new ideas for Boutique Borders. Then I saw how Maile used this month's Splits: Celebrate & ended up with 2 cards.  First I gold embossed the border image on kraft & added the Wonderful Words: Hello die cut.  Love the kraft, black & gold combo.
Next I stamped the border in black (using my mini MISTI--yah!) on ivory cardstock.  PTI's Counting My Blessings die was cut from gold paper & mounted 3 high so that there's a very slight black shadow.  I used little stickers for the sentiment & embellished with black/gold/cream twine (NBUS!) & black Rain Dots.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

  24. Hi Greta. I like them both! First I thought `the second one, that`s the one´ but now I think that both creations are just great. The second card - to me - is eyecatching because of the golden `blessed´.

  26. That 'blessed' card is the bomb! Not to diss that first card though, it has its merits as well.
