I used the following items in my post (click below to see the paper on the Robin's Nest website):
I started by distressing a piece of blue cardstock by sanding it and then adhering it to a piece of chipboard. Next, I cut a rectangle out of the Rocking Horse Specialty Paper (no measuring, just a quick couple of cuts). I cut various pieces from the Special Delivery Boy Paper and used distress ink to age them. My cut pieces were all triangle type shapes (nothing exact). I glued the Special Delivery paper (face down) to the underside of the opening in the Rocking Horse paper (wide end glued down). I then used a few different trims I had in my stash to surround the opening, and then glued the smaller end of the Special Delivery pieces down around the trimmed out area. I completed my layout by adding a "Little Treasure" tag and then adhering the Rocking Horse portion to the solid cardstock portion and then adding the piece as a whole to my frame. I just love the colors and the way the frame gives it such a finished look.
In these last pictures I added a piece of scrap paper to show how you would just insert your photo and glue it down . . . or I was thinking about gluing a mini clothespin at the top of the opening so that you could even change out the photo. What do you think?
Make sure to leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by; make sure to hop over to the Robin's Nest Website to check out the New Baby Boy and Baby Girl Special Delivery sets.
