Peeking Through the Leafy Frame

Hi, Sue here today! Have you been amazed by all the creative projects during the blog blitz? I know I have!

When I saw the Leafy Frame Die and Kitty Cat Face Die, I knew I wanted to pair them to create a little spooky scene with the kitty peaking out amidst a dark background.


I inked up by background with Distress Inks in different shades of blue and flicked and sprayed some Perfect Pearls on top.


I added double sided adhesive to card stock and die cut the cat face from it. I temporarily placed the negative piece on the background and glued the cat face die cuts back into place (like a puzzle) and removed the negative piece. I took off the backing paper from the face pieces and used gilding flakes (metal foil) on the exposed adhesive.


I cut two pieces of the Leafy Frame. One out of black vellum and one from gray card stock and layered them with foam tape for added depth.


I made another card, this time using gold gilding flakes. I die cut two Leafy Frames again, this time from gold and gray card stock and I offset the frames slightly so the gold frame would be more visible.


I love how these cards turned out. I think for my next one I'll use some black fun flock for the cat.

For your chance to win the Leafy Frame, please leave a comment on this post.

Love that Leafy Frame!

Funny with the 2 colour-frames!
Love how you made the cat!

A very inspiring card. The leafy frame has many possibilities. When I looked at it in the catalog, I couldn't figure out how I would use it. Now I have ideas for that die. Thank you for using this die today.

The detail on this die is so beautiful.

Both stunning!!! Love how you used these two dies together Sue!

Love both the leafy frame and the cat face. Great card.

That's one spooky cat! I like to idea of cutting two frames and having the other color peek out from underneath.
