Echo Park and Large Format Die Templates

Friendship

Supplies:  Spellbinders™ Grand Scalloped Squares, Grand Classic Squares, Labels Fourteen, Pattern Paper – Echo Park, Buttons – American Crafts, Ribbon – Papertrey Ink, Stamp – Gina K Designs

Have you heard of Echo Park?  It’s a great new paper company that makes bright, whimsical designs.  I used my new Large Format die templates from Spellbinders to create the base of the card and the orange square.  Then I lined up layers of pattern paper and blued them all together on the green paper and ran it through with my Large Format Classic Square.  That way, the embossing is all the way around the edges (hard to see in the photo!)  It’s a similar technique that I used in creating my ornament card that I posted a few posts back. 

It’s been dark and rainy ever since we got home.  I’ve such a hard time taking good photos of my projects.  I need to get new bulbs and pull out my light box that I use in the winter! 

Toodles!
