Oh what fun it is to take something intended for A and using it for Z. That's just what I challenged myself to do: make a card with a component of a Project Life kit and make it fast. Using 1 out of the 100 cards in the Everyday Adventure Project Life Card Collection #135298/$15.95 (intended to be decor on a memory keeping page) I tweaked it and it became the focal point of a traditional card.
Here's part of what I started with:
For my purposes there was too much white space around the dot splatter and the sentiment so I chose the Ovals Collection Framelits #129381/$26.95 and cut the center out with one of the ovals. I then mounted that oval onto Bermuda Bay card stock #131197/$6.95.
I took a 2nd card out of the card collection (with the Crushed Curry dots above left) and trimmed the white off and mounted it on Basic Black card stock #121045/$6.95.
Ran a Bermuda Bay card (5-1/2" x 4-1/4") front through the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #133520/$7.95.
Cut some butterflies out using the Beautiful Wings Embosslits #118138/$11.95.
Popped up the focal point piece onto the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals #104430/$3.95.
Tied a little bow from 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon in Bermuda Bay #131206/$5.95 and adhered it to one clear button from Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons #127555/$5.95.
Adhere the butterflies and button. Place 1 rhinestone on each butterfly from the Rhinestone Basic Jewels #119246/$4.95. Gently flap up the butterfly wings.
And here is the finished result! If you notice, I used circles or rounded shapes in several places. Keeps it consistent and ties it all together.
