It's a Girl Thing...

Today I am sharing a card created using Spellbinders Dies, KaiserCraft Paper and Want2Scrap bling.  All of these have been gathering on my desk and need to belong somewhere - you know how is - I have 'UFO Syndrome' (Un-Finished Objects)

The image is a free digital that I printed about a year ago (head hung in shame! LOL) It has been coloured using Chameleon Pens, fussy cut/ hand cut out with scissors; cut out and popped up onto the Spellbinders Marvelous Squares Nestabililties using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  

The Die has been cut/embossed using the Platinum Die Cutting Machine and used as a stencil by sponging inside the Die using Imagine Delicata ink in Golden Glitz before removing from the Die and being popped up onto the Kaisercraft card front.

Lace with narrow gingham ribbon has been adhered below the layered image, a double Seam binding bow has been glued to the centre of the lace and a recycled vintage button glued to the bow.  The gorgeous Swirls Finesse in Le Creme is from Want2Scrap; this has been trimmed and adhered either side of the button.

 Sscrapbook Adhesives by 3L Creative Photo Corners Gold have been adhered to each corner o the patterned paper and the layered card front has been attached to the card front.  Postmarks have been randomly stamped onto the card front using green ink.
