Faux Mitre Corner Technique

Thanks for hopping over! I have an easy technique to share with you for the Dungarees Blog Hop hosted by Club Scrap.

I was inspired by a card on my Pinterest board and decided to try my hand at the multi-layered piece featuring faux mitred corners.

Sizes of Dungarees paper used:
Card Base
7x10 Cream

Layer #1
4-3/4x6-3/4 Dark Blue
4-5/8x6-5/8 Kraft

Layer #2
3-1/2x5-1/2 Dark Blue
3-3/8x5-3/8 Cream or Text

Layer #3
2-3/4x4-3/4 Dark Blue
2-5/8x4-5/8 Cream

All the pretty layers!
Use the 45 degree angle on the grid ruler to mark the largest Kraft panel at each corner.
Align the mark with an indentation on the ScorPal and score.
Flip the panel onto the raised score side and apply Earth ink with an Ink Applicator.
Punch some daisies from the Russet Plain. Stamp the pocket onto Cream with Sapphire ink and trim.
Arrange the flowers on the panel and add a few stems with a black pen.
Special thanks to Kay Williamson for the detailed card photos below . . .
