Just Because

Hello crafters!  I thought I would show off the 3D embossing folder called Moroccan Tiles.  I embossed a piece of white card with it, then used the Wisteria Matt Chalk Polish lightly over the top of the embossing to bring out the pattern.  Next, I used the Double Stitched Octagons and made a multi-layered frame for the middle of the card.  i cut a wider frame for the bottom layer and used the Wisteria Matt Chalk Polish on it while it was still in the dies, which left a nice white edge around it.  I cut the smaller, thinner frame in white.  I added acetate to the back of it, then added it with foam mounting tape to the top of the wider frame.  I cut the Because Bold shadowed die in wisteria and added it to a white shadow, then glued it to the acetate.  I stamped the words "Just" and "Thinking of You" from the coordinating stamp set and cut them with the tag dies and added them around the sentiment with foam.  I used the Striped Nasturtiums and cut the base in wisteria and added a white outline to the top, then assembled three flowers.  I added them around the sentiment in opposite corners.  Using the Splendid Swirls and the Lace Edged Leaves, I added accents in white to the flowers.  The card was completed with white and wisteria mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/4"  in size.  

So sorry, I forgot to add that I will be doing a demo on Jamie Rodgers show on Create and Craft today.  It is at 6:45pm UK time or 1:45pm EST in the US.  It would be great if you can pop by and see all the fab demos and products that Jamie has on his show!  All for now,  Sue x
