Welcome to my blog on this wonderful Sunday morning here in California. The weather is wonderful today for crafting pretty things so today i have a fun layered card to share using lots of Becca Feeken dies and her new Glimmer plates. Mixing plates and dies is one of my favorite things to do and it not only makes gorgeous cards but gives you so much more use out of all those amazing things you have in your crafty stashes.
To make my card above i started with the "Elegant Foil Seals Glorious Glimmer Hot Foil Classic Plates by Becca Feeken" and a gold mat finish foil. This plate comes with an edge die so i made sure i used that part to give it another edge.
Under that piece i layered a circle using Becca's Hemstitch Circles in ivory. Then i used another of the glimmer plates called Elegant Circle Glorious Glimmer Hot Foil Classic Plates by Becca Feeken. This one i heated on ivory paper to match the base colors and fussy cut around the edges to add it behind the medallion i created. Be sure and add 3D foam dots to make all that glorious gold stand out a bit more. Rhinestones will give it even more pizzazz....
And then for my base of my card i used the Hemstitch Rectangle and cut and embossed it with the same mat gold and cut an ivory mat and another very thin gold layer to attach onto my ivory card. Using lots of layers in alternating colors can really produce an amazing effect don't you think!
And then just add a bit of ribbon criss crossed in the center before you attach the center medallion layer and add a pretty bow and a flower. My cute little tag is one of Becca's dies from another collection called Tiny Tags. I love this set since the stamps are included in it.... so very cute!
I hope you like my inspiration for today and see you back again for another fun idea next week. If you ever have any questions be sure and leave me a quick note and i will be sure and answer as quick as i can.... Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful week :)
