Sweet Wall Plaque

Our Small Art Big Passion is all about the love of making cards, tags atc's and anything in between. From Stamps, flowers, paper, embellishments and pretty things in between! These yummy goodies will enhance any of the kits or stand alone .

This month our kit includes : 6x6 Sherri Baldy paper pad, 2 watercolor tags, laser Cut plaque, Petitie Alphas, 5 Brads, Resin Clocks x 4, 1 yard Seam Binding, Prima Chalk Ink, Laser cut keys, Butterfly metal die Burlap flowers by Petaloo.

This month's kit features Sherry Baldy's "My Besties" 6x6 paper pad called "Pink Pink Pink".   As you can see, one of the sheets has her signature "My Besties " darlings on it - so that's the image I decided to highlight.  It's very sweet.  ( You can find more "My Besties " paper by Sherry Baldy right here in the Unicorn shop.)

The Small Art Big Passion kit also included a fascinating chipboard plaque that's sized 6inx7in - a pretty decent size  to hang in a bedroom wall, in a nook, on a door - pop a name on it and you've got a great door plaque. 

I used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Floral Ovals S4-356 to create my lovely focal point with "My Besties" image.  You can see below that i have some dimension to the diecut. 

 So here's what I did to create that effect. 

1.  First I cut the "My Besties" image from the paper with the die.  

2. I trimmed the frilly edges off the diecut and made it into just an oval.  If you look to the image below, you will see some dotted marks around the edges of the oval.  That's from the die.  That's how I knew to cut the perfect oval. 

3. I mounted the oval onto cardboard.

4. I grabbed a second piece of Sherry's "My Besties" paper and also ran that through the die machine to become my mat. 

5.  Ink up all the edges and glue to the plaque. 

The plaque itself was covered in cream cardstock and accented with Tim Holtz Distress ink and Clearsnap Mixd Media Inx - Peaches for a nice blended look. 

Here is the sweet close up of the image.
