Becky Fleck PageMaps with Dame Dream Big Card


Hello there friends and crafty peeps! This month the folks at Authentique are teaming up with PageMaps and it's my turn  to share the card I created with the inspiration of this fabby card sketch. I'm using the gorgeous Dame Collection for this card as well as some perfectly coordinating embellishments!
I'm really a big fan of square cards so I was so happy to receive this sketch to work with.

The Dame collection has so many gorgeous elements to play with that it's a favorite for me to create cards with.
This was actually my very first sketch project.  I think I captured it quite well if I do say so myself.

Following along with the sketch I layered on the paper patterns. Some from the 12 x 12 sheets and some from the 6 x 6 paper pad.  A bit of stitching adds nice texture and a subtle detail. I've incorporated a few vintage buttons and a sentiment from the sticker sheet. 

The banner shapes are tucked into the flowers arrangement along with a sweet loopy bow of coordinating plaid ribbon, a coppery colored clip, and a tiny birdcage charm.

From the die cut sheet I selected three hearts and added them to circles die cut from the patterned paper. Adhering them to tiny paper doilies and stitching them  together makes 1 large embellishment out of 3 smaller ones. 

A few additional flowers and a smaller bow of loopy twine helps to bring the balance from the larger arrangement. I've also added a fussy cut birdcage to continue the bird theme from the charm.

I was able to get a lot of dimension by adding spacers between the layers and folding the hearts up from their stitching line.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) Ginny
