This week at The Cutting Cafe we had the opportunity to play with the 4 Leaf Clover Shaped Card! The file comes with the template for the card and also a couple of printable images.
I used the optional layering pieces that come with the set. I added some stitching (surprise, eh?) and added the sentiment to the center of the clover. I embellished the center with a matching brad.
Jay and David really are the most amazing friends. They are almost eighteen and I hope they continue to be the best of friends through their adult life. This title seemed appropriate.
I found matching chipboard that went with this collection (Echo Park-This & That Charming) that had the word 'brothers' on it. We include David in our family, like a son (and that would make Jay and David brothers). Everywhere they go, they are asked it they are brothers. I created another cluster to reflect that part of their friendship too.
After I was finished the layout I wanted to add some 'splats' of mist or paint. I masked off the photo area and attempted to splatter the background. I wanted to have larger spots instead of a misted look. I really like the effect it created. I also outlined my layout with thin black lines using a black marker.
I hope you will visit The Cutting Cafe blog and see what the other team members have been creating.
