Dream Big

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I used a piece of Coconut White Card and cut just the inner die from the Spellbinders Shells Duality Die Set 4 times. I popped some Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Lilac Card. I removed the other backing sheet and added it to the back of the background piece. I added CS Diamond Sprinkles to the exposed adhesive.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Petite Lavish Sentiments Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using #2 die from the Spellbinders Savoy Labels Die Set. I also cut the #4 die from the same set out of Coconut White Card.

I cut dies #2 and #3 from the Spellbinders Savoy Decorative Elements Die Set out of Lilac Card. I stacked all the Savoy dies cuts on top of each other using 3D Foam.

I cut some leaves out of Lilac Card using the Spellbinders Romantic Vines Die Set and I made some flowers out of Coconut White Card using the Spellbinders Cinch & Go Die Set adding some brads to the centres.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm White Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.
