Spellbinders - Just a Note

Hello friends! I am back today with a cards created using Spellbinders Dies - no stamping - just dies. I do love stamping on cards, but there are times when Dies do it all.

I have used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Art Deco Astoria Decorative Accent Etched Dies for my centrepiece.  This has been cut/embossed using the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine and white card stock.  I have used the Die as a stencil, colouring the exposed areas using Imagine Memento ink in Teal Zeal and Tangelo Inks, before removing it from the die.

Then it has been glued onto the Nestabilities Labels Thirty-Nine Etched Die and popped up using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares, onto a card front is patterned paper that has been embossed using the Em-bossing Fold'ers Floral 4.25 x 5.5 in Single Sided then lightly sanded with a sanding block before being adhered to the pre-cut card base,

The sentiment is from the Die D-Lites Sentiments 5 Etched Dies and has been cut using white card stock and adhered using liquid glue. Finishing off with a row of lace being added across Labels Thirty Nine and Want2Scrap white pearls added along the lace and to the flower Die Cut.
