Good Sunday morning all! I was having a look around some of my card picture folders and found this one. I thought it should have it's day on the blog, don't you? I started by embossing a piece of milk card with the Leafy Quad embossing folder. I used the Double Pierced Square Noble set to create a multi layer frame using both Vintage gold and black card. I mounted the frame with mounting foam to raise it for dimension. I cut the You Are Special die in milk card, black card and just the flower in vintage gold card. I used the black as a shadow for the milk die cut and adhered it with spray adhesive. Then I paper pieced the gold fallaway pieces back into the flower to give it a bit of colour. I cut the Vela Gemini die out of milk card. I used just the outer cutting edges to cut a black backing for it and glued the two pieces together. I cut the decorative piece of the die one more time in Vintage gold and paper pieced the flowers back into the die to add colour to it as well. I mounted it up a bit so it sits on the edges of the frame. I completed the card with milk, black and vintage gold card. Definitely more of a unisex sort of card or great for females that aren't into really girlie sort of cards! The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x 7 3/4" in size.
