Today I’m sharing my version of the framed New Horizons DSP from page 42 of the mini catalogue.
The image inspired me to buy the suite so I could make this framed piece for my craft room.
The New Horizons 6 x 6″ Designer Series Paper contains the stunning background piece already printed. It makes creating your own artwork so easy.
I cut the fence from Basic White cardstock and attached it using liquid glue. The birds were stamped in Evening Evergreen.
There’s a stamp in the On The Horizon stamp set for the words so I embossed in white on Evening Evergreen for the word relax. Then I stamped again using Evening Evergreen ink on Basic White. Then I cut out the words using my paper snips.
CHANGING A DIE CUT SIZE
I wanted to mount the words on a driftwood looking background, so I chose a piece of In Good Taste designer series paper. However when I cut the shape using the Horizon Dies it was too large for the words.
So I took the die cut and the same die and ran it through the die cutting and embossing machine again to remove a section from 1 end. Therefore creating the perfect size.
I made a nest of Linen Thread under the die cut shape and adhered it using dimensionals. A mix of the Pebbles Enamel Shapes were added to the foreground of the fence.
Lastly I mounted the picture on dimensionals to a piece of Basic White to fit an 8″ x 8″ frame.
I’ve used the New Horizons Suite for my first March class, casing the card directly below the framed piece on page 42 of the mini catalogue.
