Cut and Emboss - Blooming Sprigs

Hello friends, thanks so much for dropping in.  After a weekend of R&R I am back playing with one of the new Cut and Emboss folders released by Spellbinders - I hope you are being inspired by the cards I have been sharing using these wonderful folders. This one called Blooming Sprigs Cut and Emboss Folder .

Run the Blooming Sprigs Cut and Emboss Folder through the Platinum Die Cutting Machine using white card stock. Sponge the embossed pattern using Imagine Radiant Neon inks in Electric Purple, Electric Blue, Electric Orange and Electric Orange, along with Memento Inks in Lulu Lavender and Bamboo Leaves and last but in no way least - Delicata Golden Glitz Ink. Adhere small pieces of yellow and purple card stock on the back of the die cut flowers. Round all the corners on every layer using a corner rounder.

 Pop up onto a slightly larger green layer using  Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Crafty Foam Tape.  Adhere a computer generated sentiment onto the top left hand corner of the card. Pop up onto a slightly larger purple card base using 3D Foam Squares. Add Faux Enamel dots using Imagine irRESISTIBLES Pico Embellishers in Tuxedo Black.
