Wish You Were Here with BasicGrey


I am so excited to be up on the BasicGrey blog today, sharing some cards featuring Kelly Purkey’s Second City collection. I have had so much fun playing with this adorable line. The bold colors and graphic prints are just up my alley, and I am smitten with the die cut transparency photo frames. I love them for scrapbook and pocket pages, but they are also wonderful for framing focal images on cards.  I’ve used the frames several ways on my card projects, and today I am sharing the first of those cards with you here.

Some of the frames have clear transparencies, while others have fun printed images that are great for layering, and give you lots of design options. On my first card, I created a 3D city scape scene by adding one of the printed photo frames over a cardstock sticker, with a bit of foam adhesive between the layers.
