Recycled Birds of a Feather

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  It is Saturday evening here and perfect weather to be inside and creating. Today's card has been created using Spellbinders Dies and a recycled image.  I am sure I am not the only one who likes to recycle - some things are just too good to  only use once - definitely the case with these gorgeous birds.

Cut/emboss two (2) Nestabilities Romantic Rectangles Two Etched Dies using white card stock and the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" Platform  Score one of the die cuts at 1.5cm and fold forward.  Add double sided tape to the folded forward portion and attach the second die cut to form the card base - making sure to line up the patterned sides.

Emboss patterned paper using the Flourish Stitch Em-bossing Fold'ers Quilt It by Lene Lok.  Trim to size and adhere to the card base using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  Cut/emboss the largest die from the Shapeabilities Laced with Love Fleur Essence Etched Dies using white card stock. Adhere one third of the way down the card front, upside down adding adhesive at the top and bottom only.

Add a Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L Gold Photo Corners to the top two corners of the recycled image.  Pop up onto the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares, tucking the end of the image into the lower portion of the die cut.

Stamp the sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Vintage Elegance Becca Feeken Graceful Tiny Tag Stamp and Die Set.  Cut/emboss the sentiment using the tag from the Laced with Love Fleur Essence Etched Dies, adhere across the lower portion of the recycled image,  Add Want2Scrap Baby Bling - Turquoise Rhinestones to the die cuts.
