Hi friends, Labels 28 again today but in a lighter fare. I used a piece of grey tonal patterned paper for my background. I then cut two of the Blossom Corners from Heartfelt Creations out of coconut white card. I glued them into place so they created a lacy backdrop for my buckle card. Using the Labels 28 die set, I cut three frames, two slightly smaller than the centre one. On the larger centre frame, I stamped first using the Blossom Frame from the Stamps To Die For Range and a clear perfect medium pad. I heat embossed it with Silver Shine Embossing powder, then cut it out with the coordinating dies. I cut a forked flag and wove it through the three frames and centred it across them. Next I stamped my sentiment from the All In The Family Sentiment set from JustRite stamps. I cut it out with the oval from the Radiant Rectangles set. I used the inner decorative insert die with it for a bit more detail. While it was still in the die, I used Brushed Pewter Distress Stain on a piece of cut 'n dry foam to highlight the sentiment. I mounted it with 3D foam across the three frames to complete my focal element. I added a darker grey mat, then finished the card with a double mat of coconut white card with an inner pierced mat. I hope you like it! Finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x 8" in size.
