Emboss patterned paper using the Flourish Stitch Em-bossing Fold'ers Quilt It by Lene Lok.  Trim to size and adhere to the card base using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  Cut/emboss the largest die from the Shapeabilities Laced with Love Fleur Essence Etched Dies using white card stock. Adhere one third of the way down the card front, upside down adding adhesive at the top and bottom only.

Add a Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L Gold Photo Corners to the top two corners of the recycled image.  Pop up onto the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares, tucking the end of the image into the lower portion of the die cut.

Tiny and Sweet

Hello friends - thanks so much for stopping by.  Today I am sharing an adorable little baby card - how Sweet are those images from Kaisercraft - I could not resist them when I popped into the Outlet a little while ago.  


My card base has been created using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Fancy Edged Rectangles Etched Dies.  Two of the largest size Die has been cut and embossed using the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" Platform and white card stock.  Score one Fancy Edged Rectangles at 1.5cm and fold forward. Adhere the second Fancy Edged Rectangles, making sure to line up the sides - this forms the card base.

Cut/emboss some patterned paper using the second Die from the  Fancy Edged Rectangles and adhere to the card base using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner UltraPop up the Postcard layer onto the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  Adhere a strip of white Seam Binding around the layered card front, secure on the front left side, Glue a double Seam Binding bow over the join.

Layer the baby image onto a Nestabilities Open Scallop Edge Circles Etched Dies in white, Adhere to the right side of the Postcard.  Pop up the sentiment onto the smallest die from the Nestabilities Fancy Edged Circles Etched Dies and onto the card front, using double sided tape on the portion that overlaps onto the baby image and 3D Foam Squares on the lower portion - so the sentiment sits evenly on the layered card front.  Adhere one medium and two small silver rhinestones to the top right of the baby image.
