Beau Chateau

Good Morning all and a very happy Wednesday to you.

I have a friend who needed a sympathy card and wanted to reflect her love of roosters.  This is what I came up with…


I first began by snipping out the frame from a sheet of the designer paper and mounting it as if it were an easel; hence the ribbon for the easel legs.  For some reason the dimension on this card was more prominent than others that I have done, have a look.


I popped up the ‘easel’ with dimensionals and worked most everything off of that. 

The flower in the center was created with a looped punch that I had on hand and added the small daisy from the daisy #2 die to the center topping it off with a rose punched with a 3/4’ circle punch.  Each of the edges where sponged using Crumb Cake Ink.  I didn’t want to use snail adhesive on the flower and dimensionals were too much.  Glue dots worked perfect.

The sentiment was stamped on a scrap piece of the same DSP and then cut by hand and folded down to the appropriate size needed.


Here’s a glimpse at the inside and a better view of how the sentiment was created.


Memorial Day weekend is just about upon us, I hope you all have a great weekend enjoy your family time.  Get those grills cleaned up and ready to go, they tell me that this is the official start of back yard barbequing.  *smiles*

Take care everybody and thanks so much for stopping by!

What a fantastic use of the frame in that DSP. Making it look like a frame on an easel is just brilliant. Even the sentiment stamped on a scrap and folded/clipped like a banner? Just genius, Linda. Really love this one!

Love the colours & truly appropriate. Am surprised I haven't found your blog before as there are loads of your cards I really like, especially your anniversary card for your son & DIL. Have added it to my Pinterest & your blog to my favs now.
