Day Care

This fortnight at CD Sundays the challenge is All Creatures Great and Small which of course sent me straight to the beautiful Design House CD, Meadow's Edge.

I decided to try one of the "side stacker with frame" image sheets. I'd not used one before and as you can see from the lower photo, it's a little bit strange as the outer edge of the frame waves about unsupported above the rest of the card. Maybe the intention is that you insert it, recessed, into an aperture card with the frame flush with the card, but that, of course, would leave you with the insert sticking out into the inside of the card.

Anyway, what it lacks in practicality it makes up for in prettiness! I've used one of the co-ordinating backing papers from the CD, plus the border and a tag from the image sheet and a die cut sentiment that just happens to fit the tag perfectly.
