Graphic 45 For a Sweet Friend

Hello friends, thank you for stopping in. Today's card is very simple to create using a beautiful filigree edged Spellbinders Die set, along with one core die and some Graphic 45 The Secret Garden patterned paper - add to that a bow and some pearls and you have all of the ingredients right there - and it is easy to improvise if you don't have the exact product!

Two Nestabilities Label 58 Decorative Elements Etched Dies #3 (#1 being the smallest) have been cut/embossed using the Platinum Die Cutting Machine  and white card stock.  Score the top of one at 1cm and fold forward.  Add adhesive to the 1cm portion, attach the front being sure to line up the pattern - Making a patterned card base has never been so easy!

Cut/emboss the patterned  image using Nestabilities Labels Fifty Etched Dies, lightly sand around the embossed edge using a Sanding Block.  Pop up onto the Die cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares. 

Cut/emboss one Nestabilities Label 58 Decorative Elements Etched Dies #1 (#1 being the smallest) using the Platinum Die Cutting Machine  and white card stock. The Die has been used as a stencil by sponging inside the Die using Imagine Memento ink in Bamboo Leaves before removing from the Die. Line up the sentiment and stamp onto the tag.  Pop the tag up using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.   Adhere a double narrow Seam Binding bow to the left of the tag using liquid glue.  Finishing with a  Want2Scrap Swirls Finesse - Le Creme, trimmed and adhered from the bow.
