Good morning!! It's Lisa again, sharing a girly perfume bottle card with you today. These Yvonne Creations Perfume dies make me think of my grandmother. She always had a collection of pretty bottles sitting out that she picked for the style of the bottles rather than the fragrance.
I layered the bottles onto the nesting frames from the Yvonne Creations Snowflake Rectangle die set. I like to look at my Christmas die sets and find elements that are not Christmas-related and use them all year long.
When I first cut the bottles out, I decided I wanted to fill in all the die cut holes, so I glued them to foil cardstock with Bearly Art glue and fussy cut around them.
I'm not always sure of my layout until I start taping or gluing things together. I was almost sure this was going to be a vertical card with a big sentiment, but I didn't like how that looked.
I wanted to share something I do when I pop up elements that not a lot of people do. Especially when my cardstock is thin, like this silver shimmer is, I can't stand when the cardstock like dips because there's no foam tape there. So I put foam under the entire die cut. I just snip my pop dots to fit in the little spots.
