SFC #82 - Living on the Edge!!!

It's another Squigglefly Monday Challenge!!!!

Welcome back!  We've got a real treat in store for you today!  All of the DT creations are focusing on "EDGES!"  How do you decorate yours up???  Punches?....Bling?...Templates?....etc.???

Here is my card with only a sentiment today!

When I saw this lovely sentiment which was included in the first release of the year, I knew I would buy it.  The reason???  I just received the Background Basics: Sheet Music from PaperTrey Ink and I couldn't wait to pair the two of them together!

I just love the pearls on the edge of this card!!!

Today, I used several different ways to decorate edges.  The first thing I did was to use a template by Dawn McVey and her Color Couture collection.  I just love when PaperTrey Ink releases these.  Basically, they are a template in a variety of sizes.  Once you print them out on card stock and cut them, you can use them over and over again because you just trace the one you just made.  This one is from the December download, which you can find HERE.

After cutting the template out, I had to use my MFT Decorative Doily die.  Those edges are just to "die" for (pun totally   I think this is my most used die in my entire collection!  In order to center my sentiment, I cut a doily out and placed that aside.  Next I used the square piece that had the doily cut out of it and I placed it over top my sentiment.  This allowed the sentiment to peek through and I could position it however I wanted.  Then I taped that square right where I wanted and nestled the die right on top.  Ran it through my Big Shot and Ta-Da!!!  Sentiment centered!!!

Finally, I stamped my music background and then used foam dimensionals to adhere the doily to the card.  I added in some bling and pearls for those edges and it is all set and ready to go!
