Mirror, Mirror On the Wall...

Birthdays are just another day for me. But, I love to make them a big deal for friends and family.  A new release for Cornish Heritage Farms this Tuesday is an amazing set in the Rummage Bin line called A Royal Birthday.  Here's one of the projects I created with the set...

Lying Mirrors:

The image itself is the vintage, delicate frame with the sentiment "do not Believe the Mirror it is Lying" inside of it.  To create the frame, I stamped the image with Black Soot Distress ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I carefully trimmed out the image and used a scalpel to remove the center.  I cut a small piece of metal sheet and adhered behind the frame to make my own mirror of sorts.  Then, to make the sentiment tag, I used cellophane tape to cover the frame portion of the image and inked the image.  I removed the tape and stamped on the tag shape.  Super simple!

The set will release on Tuesday, October 20th - so be sure to check out the CHF gallery for more inspiration.

  1. Great way to split out the sentiment and the frame Lise, this looks great!
