Little Loves - HB2U

Hello friends, welcome and thank you for stopping by!  Today I am sharing a card using one of the Spellbinders Little Loves Collection by Licensed Designer Sharyn Sowell.  Sharyn's Dies are always inspiring - the original being hand cut using scissors - an amazing skill in itself.  Sharyn is a very accomplished artist and you can read a little about her HERE.

I have a number of this image already Die Cut (I tend to do that) and decided it was time to use them, along with other bits and pieces lying on my desk.  The patterned paper has been cut into strips and layered onto recycled cardboard, cut to size using a Spellbinders Matting Die and lightly sanded.  This has been adhered to a pre-cut slightly larger white card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Adhesive Sheets 4 x6. 

Emboss one Shapeabilities Baby's Garden Etched Dies Little Loves by Sharyn Sowell in patterned paper and one in white card stock and glue slightly to the left of the card front.  Adhere the patterned paper die cut to the white, leaving a little of the white die cut showing to give a shadow effect.  Glue the layered die cuts onto the middle of the card front.
Glue a strip aqua lace below the die cut images, next pop up a stamped sentiment onto the centre of the lace and glue a Little Birdie Crafts flower to the left of the sentiment.

Pop up the Kaisercraft sentiment sticker to the lower left side of the card base, across the pleated strip, using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  Finish with a Want2Scrap Beautiful Bling Borders to the lower portion of the card front.
