September Challenge Project by Ginger

Monique Cards

Good afternoon, peoples!!!  As promised, I have some inspiration for my September challenge to share with you 🙂  If you follow this blog, you will remember that the challenge was to choose one product from the ButterBeeScraps shop and use it in 3 different ways.  This week, design team member Ginger Ropp chose the Bronze Metal Filigree Embellishments (#553-B) to work with and created a pocket card to inspire you to participate in the challenge 🙂

Ginger chose to use Graphic 45’s Mon Amour paper stack to create this card.  On the front, she fussy cut one of the images from the collection and layered it with a die cut doily and a sentiment, also from the collection.  She then added an Ivory Resin Flower Cabochon (#RES637-IV) from the shop in the lower right hand corner and cut the ends from a Bronze Metal Filigree Embellishment (#553-B) to tuck under the flower as leaves (…that’s use #1 🙂 )  Ginger then continued to cut the flourishes from the same filigree and tucked them under the corners of the matting on the front of the card (…#2).  I just love how those flourishes look!  …can anyone say “scrap-lift”?  …heehee.

For her next trick, Ginger folded her filigree in half and used it as a tab on the top of the removable mat (…#3).  It seems as though Ginger decided to follow my lead from earlier this month and used her chosen filigree in a fourth way…she simply cut the filigree in half and placed each end on either side of the “Mon Amour” sentiment on the back of the card.  I do this alot on the front of cards and think it’s a wonderful way of framing a sentiment 🙂
