Keeping You Close

Hello friends, thanks for stopping by.  Today I have a pretty card to share with you - using Spellbinders Dies along with some gorgeous Anna Griffin Inc embellishments and more.

The card front has been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Etched Dies cut/embossed using the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" Platform and Anna Griffin Inc flocked paper.

This has been popped up onto cream card stock using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  The beautiful sentiment is from the Anna Griffin Inc. Grace Collection and has been layered onto the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares. 

The card front has been created by cutting/emboss two Card Creator Emmeline Treillage Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken  using pink card stock and the outer cutting edge only.  Score one Emmeline Treillage at 2cm and fold forward.  Apply double sided tape to the folded section; add the second die cut to the first to create the card base - making sure to line up the edges.  Pop up the card front onto the base using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares. 

The Little Birdie Craft Natalie Pearl Pink flowers and foliage have been glued on the left side of the sentiment  using varying size flowers.
