Birdsong Blues

Hello friends, thank so much for stopping by.  It is the last day of June here in the Southern Hemisphere - hard to believe the first half of the year is gone! Today I have a shabby chic card to share with you, I do love this style and could not resist this beautiful palette - inspired by the beautiful Prima products I have used.  One of the great things about sorting your stash is finding things that get put away and overlooked...I will say no more on that! Wink:wink! 

The card front has been cut/embossed using the second largest die from the Spellbinders A2 Curved Matting Basics A Card Creator Etched Dies and the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" Platform and the Prima Marketing Inc. Princess Collection. . This has been layered onto a slightly larger scalloped  layer that has been cut/embossed using the cutting edge only from the Card Creator Emmeline Treillage Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken. using using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L Crafty Foam Tape.  Next the layers gave been popped up onto a pre-cut card base using the largest die from the A2 Curved Matting Basics A Card Creator Etched Dies.

The Pocket from the Shapeabilities Amazing Paper Grace Flourish Frame Pocket Etched Dies has cut/embossed using both the insert and the frame, it has then been trimmed to fit the card front and the edges sponged using Imagine Memento Ink in Espresso Truffle.  White Seam Binding has been threaded through the Flourish Frame Pocket and glued glued at the backIt has been popped across the lower portion of the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra.

A flower from the Little Birdie Crafts the Vincy Ceram Collection has been glued into the left of the pocket. The Want2Scrap Swirls Finesse - White has been trimmed and adhered to the right side of the flower, cross the pocket and Seam Binding. The Heart Swirl from the Shapeabilities Swirl Tags Etched Dies Romancing the Swirl Becca Feeken has been cut/embossed and adhered to the top two corners, a medium White Pearl has been adhered to the centre of each swirls, along with the bottom right corner.
