When few days ago I first was Kandis Smith’s baby cards on Echo Park blog I was instantly inspired to create something! I loved the negative space backed with pattern paper on her cards and I wanted to create a similar look.
For my card I used Sweet Girl collection from Echo Park. Since I am a cat-lover I was in a mood to create a card about a cat. I added lots of machine stitching (I think it always adds a nice home-made feel to a card) and rounded bottom corners. I even decorated the inside of the card – something I don’t do quite often. For that I used washi tape from the Sweet Girl collection and created a simple frame. On the back of the card I adhered the leftover die cut piece from the front of the card.
