Next, I used a couple of die cuts from Spellbinders but cut them out with my Cutttlebug! I had never done this and it worked like a dream. (of course) I then ran the label through the Cuttlebug using an embossing folder. I also stenciled the design onto the focal piece.
I decided to add some more interest to the card front so stamped my fav collage stamp by Stampers Anonymous several times with Espresso Ink. I also stamped the words in the upper right corner and attached a Prima collage flower in the lower left panel. Then I added the bit of ribbon that would carry trough to the open card.
I cut and embossed the label a second time and layered it over the ribbon on two other layers. Both layers were embossed, corner rounded and distressed with more Espresso ink. I love the layers and all the texture.
I am so glad to have the opportunity to create for this blog! Hope you all enjoy.
