Layers, Flowers and Beautiful Wishes

Hello friends, thank you for visiting today!  I have created an elegant card today -perhaps a little shabby using layers of  Spellbinders Dies and beautiful products from Little Birdie Crafts - their range is gorgeous - and the flowers - divine!  I have always loved flowers and all they add to a card.

The card front has been created by cutting and embossing the Shapeabilities Annabelle's Trousseau Layering Frame Medium Etched Dies Chantilly Paper Lace Collection by Becca Feeken #4 (#1being the smallest) using white card stock using the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" Platform. Pop up onto the pre-cut pink card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.

Next, cut/emboss patterned paper using Nestabilities Breanna's Corset Label Etched Dies Chantilly Paper Lace Collection by Becca Feeken #4 (#1 being the smallest) and pop up onto the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.

Adhere one cut/embossed Swirls Frame from the Shapeabilities Annabelle's Trousseau Layering Frame Medium Etched Dies Chantilly Paper Lace Collection by Becca Feeken to the layered card front also using 3D Foam Squares.  The Crafty Secrets image has been cut/embossed using the Nestabilities Breanna's Corset Label Etched Dies Chantilly Paper Lace Collection by Becca Feeken and popped up across the layered Dies, followed by the Swirl Frame that has been cut across the centre and popped up under the image on the card front.

The Little Birdie Crafts Flower is from the Paula Pastel Palette  has been glued onto the top of the layered image using liquid glue, along with a flower from the Mattina Pastel Palette each side of the large flower.   

The Little Birdie Crafts Royal Fern Chipboard Embellishment has been trimmed and a stem adhered each side of the flower.  The Chipboard is primed when you purchase it and already has a whitewash look - perfect!   The sentiment is from Crafty Secrets and has been trimmed and adhered under the flowers.

A double white Seam Binding Bow has been adhered to the base of the Die-Cut image using liquid glue and a small button glued to the centre.  This has been finished off using a Want2Scrap Medium White Pearl,
