A very pink card today.
Removable Tape. I also placed the border backer die from the Spellbinders Octagon Strips & Accents Cut, Fold & Tuck die set where I wanted it on one side of the Triumphant Blossom die. I cut and embossed and then removed the dies. I placed the Octagon backer die on the other side of the Triumphant Blossom. I placed the paper on the Cutting Plate so that the first 2 cuts were hanging over the edge so that I did not lose the embossed detail around the apertures. I made sure they were still hanging over the edge when I embossed the 2nd Octagon border.
I cut a piece of Foundations Shades Paper that was 1/4" larger than the patterned paper. I placed the patterned paper on top and replaced the Triumphant Blossom backer die and the Octagon backer die back in place in the patterned paper. I used these to line up the Triumphant Blossom CFT die and the Octagon Border die. I secured them in place and removed the patterned paper and the backer dies. I cut & embossed the CFT dies. I removed the dies from the paper and then replaced the patterned paper so that I could line up the Octagon CFT die in the other border aperture. I made sure that the Pink Paper was hanging of the edge of the plates as before so that I did not lose the embossed detail of the already cut areas.
Pearl Swirl and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
