Beautiful apertures.......

I found the most beautiful card over at Becca Feeken's blog www.amazingpapergrace.com and just had to have a go at making one myself. Becca uses Spellbinders on her cards but I used Cricut cuts where she used dies. I love Becca's cards. They are always so intricate and elegant. For my version of Becca's card, I cut a base card with an aperture at 7 3/4" using the 24" mat then covered the front with peach coloured paper. I then cut a trellis from textured cardstock and adhered it across the aperture. A frame, cut from patterned paper was adhered over the trellis with foam tape. I added a satin bow to the frame before I stuck it down, then decorated it with a floral arrangement in the opposite corner and a trio of pearls in the remaining corners. I also added a pearl to the intersections of the trellis.

On the inside of the card I added a piece of patterned paper, but only adhered it along one edge so that there is room on the inside back of the card to write a message. I then cut a smaller solid shape topped with a Pink Petticoat sentiment and adhered it to the centre of the trellis with foam pads. I am beyond chuffed with the result!
