Bohemian Rhapsody

Hello friends,  thanks so much for stopping by.  I have a pretty card to share with you today - I have to say I do love the colours - very shabby and a little 'boho'.  I have also used some of my favourite and 'go to' products - any guesses what they are!?!

I have created my own design paper by using off cuts from the Kaisercraft Bombay Sunset Collection , adhering them together to form the card front - this has been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Card Creator Emmeline Treillage Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken and the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" Platform.  The card front has been created by cutting/emboss two (2) Card Creator Emmeline Treillage Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken  using white 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 E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra. 

A pre-cut tag from the Miss Match Collectables has been adhered to the centre of the card front, followed by a tag that has been cut/embossed using the inner arch from the Shapeabilities Grand Arch 3D Card Etched Dies Elegant 3D Vignettes by Becca Feeken.  This has been popped up onto the centre of the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  Flowers from the Daybreak page have been fussy cut/hand cut using scissors and popped up onto the tag using 3D Foam Squares. 

A scalloped border from the Die-Cut Pages has been adhered along the left edge of the card front and pink twine added.  The Kaisercraft Die Cut sentiment has been adhered to a Nestabilities Open Scallop Edge Circles Etched Dies.
