Happy World Card Making Day 2017

Hello friends - it is World Card Making Day!!  It is definitely the perfect reason to get out your craft supplies and create cards. It is evening here and after a busy day NOT in the Studio I did manage to create one card to share with you.

I have created this card using one of the Spellbinders Borders Dies - I have used the cutting edge and a filigree insert- such a pretty effect!  The main body of the card front has been embossed using the Spellbinders Em-bossing Fold'ers Floral 4.25 x 5.5 in Single SidedThis has been layered onto apricot card stock - the base of this has also been cut/embossed using the cutting edge of the border Die.

A strip of white card has been stamped using Penny Black Inc Butterflies and lightly coloured using  Chameleon PensThis has been adhered across the middle of the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives By 3L E-Z Permanent Adhesive Runner.   The sentiment has been Die cut using the Spellbinders Standard Circle LG and popped up onto the butterfly layer using Scrapbook Adhesives By 3L 3D Foam Squares.

 Want2Scrap Beautiful Bling Borders has been trimmed and adhered to the lower edge of the border.  The layered card front has been adhered to the pre-cut card base using the E-Z Permanent Adhesive Runner.

This card is linked to the following challenges:
