Good Sunday morning all! I selected a piece of silver card and embossed it with the Linen Texture embossing folder as my background. I cut four of the Elegant Laced Edger corners in white and glued them into place in each corner. Next I stamped the Deco Sweethearts stamp that matches the Sintra die. I stamped it on blush card and heat embossed it in silver shine detail powder and cut it out with the matching Sintra die, using the inside cut die to create a frame. I added mounting foam to the back and cut two of the Petite Arched Adornments to add to the top and bottom of the frame. I wove flesh seam binding through the bottom part of the adornments by nipping into the die cut making a slit. I tucked the ends around the back as I attached the frame to the centre of the card. I cut a Portuguese tag in white and seated my stamped sentiment in an oval die cut in the centre. I added white flatback pearls as accents then completed the card with my usual mats and layers. The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x 7 1/2" in size.
