Hi bloggers! Today's offering is sort of like a buckle card but done vertically. I embossed a piece of coconut white card with the Dotty Daisy Embossing folder for texture to my background. I cut the large oval from the Geneva die to use as the frame for the buckle. I added mounting foam to the back of it. I cut the Belgian tag in white and stamped my sentiment and cur it out with the inside cutting die from the tag. I used the smaller inside frame from the Swiss Background and cut it in French Navy card. I backed it in white and cut the centre out of it. I ran a piece of navy blue ribbon through the three die cuts and then added my sentiment to the top of the tag. I tied a double bow and added it to the top of the card with a white crystal sparkler in the centre of the bow. I cut and embossed a thinner strip of coconut white card and added it to a thin navy border and attached it to the centre of the card with foam. I attached my buckle down the centre of it. The card was completed with white
and French Navy mats and layers. The finished dimensions are 7" x 8 1/2" in size. All for now,
