Mexican Tile Frame

Hi Classy Friends!  It's Holly posting today and I've got a bright and funky card to share with you today.  I used some new products from the Classy Cards 'n Such store along with some well loved stamps, dies, and bling.

I cut the Mexican Tile frame first and then cut some white cardstock to fit the frame.  I stamped the butterfly and the sentiment inside the frame and colored the butterfly with Copic markers.  Next, I die cut some Rose Leaves and some Olive Branches and adhered them to opposite corners of my frame.  I then die cut the fringe flowers from yellow and orange cardstock and followed the instructions for rolling them up.  

To make the yellow flowers smaller than the orange one, I used scissors to give the fringe a trim around the edges.  Once I got them to the size I wanted, I glued all the fringe flowers down onto the frame.  The silver rhinestones fit perfectly inside the centers of the fringe flowers, so I used the handle of a small paintbrush to press the rhinestones down.

These new fringe flowers are the easiest ones I've ever tried to roll up.  I just use a little quilling tool and just roll and go.  It's easy to pull the petals down with your fingers and fluff them to make a perfect fringed flower.

Very colorful!  Thanks, Holly!
