It's FUSION time again!
This week for my sketch-based card, I looked through my dies to find something small to hang for the banner elements.
This small flower and die set hadn't seen use yet, so I ended up making a Hawaiian lei out of it. The striped background is toned down from the sketch to just three lines, with the Hawaiian sentiment of "thank you" embossed in bronze on the middle line.
It stands out nicely on its own, maybe due to how the baker's twine is hanging from holes punched in the fold line. Would you believe the Papertrey stamp set is called "Flower FUSION #3?" I think it was meant to be : )
Please stop by the Fusion blog to check out the other sketch, photo and fusion inspiration from my design teammates, and to link up your own interpretation!
Thanks so much for looking!
So cool! Love the Hawaiian lei! Such a great idea! And by the way, NO, my nails are normally horrid looking. Just happen to catch me on a good day, seriously:)ReplyDelete
This is AWESOME! I love that there's so much dimension, but that it will fit nicely into an envelope! I predict a lot of CASing of this one!ReplyDelete
