Pop it Ups Oval Dots Frame Edges in Positive and Negative

Today I'm sharing a quick Oval Accordion card using a fun technique with the Oval Dots Frame Edges.


The Oval Dots Frame Edges are used in the usual manner on Page 1, cut from green and attached to the white Oval Accordion page. On Page 2, however, I've used a negative frame, cut from white using the Oval Dots Frame Edges as follows: (You can click any photo to make it larger to read the text)

Isn't that fun? For my project I trimmed away all the outer parts of the negative frame so I just had the inner oval with attached dots and glued that white decorator piece to my teal page.


For my oval decorations I used Peel-off stickers and a Hello die. All the supplies are linked below.

On Page 1, I used the Oval Roses Peel-off stickers by using a Transfer Sheet to pick up all the black parts of the Rose and adding them to white cardstock where I had already applied Double Sided Adhesive. I used Cool Diamond Microfine Glitter in the "grout" and rubbed it in well. Next I colored in the grout with alcohol markers (I used Copics BG15, BG18 and G24) After coloring I cut out the oval with scissors, layered it on a slightly larger oval from the Oval Accordion set, and glued it on Page 1.


For Page 2 I started with the largest two oval decorator dies from the Oval Accordion set. The bigger one is a solid and the smaller is a stitched die. I nested them together and cut them from thick white cardstock. I die cut the Hello die from the scraps of glittered white cardstock and from a section of unused (solid black) peel-off sticker material on the rose sheet that was big enough for the die. I colored the glitter with the same colors of alcohol markers and then layered the black Hello over the colored Hello for a shadow look. The Flourish Peel-offs came from the Flowers with Doodles sheet and then I added Glitter dots in all the loops. 


So what do you think? Pretty fun to use the Oval Dots Edges this way to make two usable frames from one Oval Accordion page.
