Sew Happy for You

Hello friends, some of the Negative Dies we have after creating our cards are too good to throw out and can add such a great feature to our cards.  I have used a negative die from this Spellbinders tutorial and have created a tag to layer onto this card and am happy with the results - what do you think?!

Using the Negative Die from the All Stitched Up Die D-Lites, popping behind the Cosmo Cricket Paquet Minature paper and brown cardstock on the stand. Adhere Rafia for the belt and a paper flower topped with a silver rhinestone heart.  Adhere this to the Heart and Home Circle Delight Decorative Elements, slightly angled. 

 Stamp the sentiment (love that faux cross Stitch) using Imagine Crafts 'featuring' Tsukineko Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black  Once dry, lightly sponge using Summer Sky and a Sponge Dauber.  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner and 3D Foam Squares have been used on this card.

Layer onto a frame created using Art Deco Astoria Labels and Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments paper.  Adhere a strip of paper tape measure and a flower, followed by a button and a silver rhinestone.
