Keep Calm

Hello friends, welcome and thanks so much for stopping by.  I am happy to say after the crazy weather here in Australia we are enjoying a normal day with a perfect temperature of 26 Degrees Celsius . Today I have a fancy fold card to share with you - it has been created from a left over kit I used for a Workshop - I have used it quite a few times but it looks different with the products you use - today's theme is keeping calm! Wink: Wink!

I created the card base by scoring Authentique Paper at 5cm, 5cm, 3cm, 3cm and 2cm to create the different height steps - so easy to do, especially when using a good thick double sided paper.  Fold the card into mountain and valley folds to form the card base 

I have stamped the images using Imagine Memento Ink in Espresso Coffee, adding background details in Cocoa ink.  I picked up these stamps when I was in Arizona with Spellbinders; they have been trimmed and adhered to the steps of the card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. The Coffee Embellishments have been cut from Canvas Corp paper.

The Little Birdie Crafts Flowers have been glued to the card base. Want2Scrap pearls have been added to the lace trim using glue.
