Who is 'De-Boss' Now?!

Hello friends - welcome and thanks so much for visiting.  Today I am excited to be sharing a card using one of the Spellbinders Glimmer Plates by Sharyn SowellIf you are like me and don't have a Foil Machine - you can still use the plates - not in the traditional way but definitely effectively - hopefully you are inspired by this card...

I have used the 'faux letterpress' technique and used the Vine Glimmer Hot Foil Plate Happy by Sharyn Sowell as an embossing plate, sponging using Imagine Versafine Ink in   Blue. ink using a Sponge Dauber for precision.  I placed the ink side up onto the main plate of the Platinum Die Cutting Machine, followed by a piece of white card stock.  Run through the Platinum using the tan mat and the embossing plate.

Adhere the Spellbinders Card Creator Graceful Scalloped Etched Dies by Becca Feeken. to the right side of the card front, run through the  Platinum Die Cutting Machine.  Use the due as a stencil and sponge inside the cutting edges using Imagine VersaMagic ink in Aegean Blue. Cut/emboss Kraft card stock using the single Scalloped Edge, adhere to the back of the card front allowing a portion to show on the right hand side and a strip of Kraft card stock on the right.

Cut /emboss the right hand side of an A-frame card base, using the single Scalloped Edge.  Adhere the layered card front onto the card base using double sided tape.  Allow for a white border on either side of the card front.

Cut two sets of the Shapeabilities Cinch and Go IV Etched Dies Shadowbox by Becca Feeken, sponging each layer using Imagine VersaMagic ink in Aegean Blue using a Sponge Dauber.  Adhere the flowers along the left side of the card base, adding Want2Scrap Medium White pearls to the center of each flower.
