Collectables - Celtic Dream - with love card from Karen

For this simple card made using the Celtic Dream Collectables Die Set I cut a DL cream card blank and layered with some dark brown followed by a light pink which I embossed with the Martha Embossing Folder.

I cut the outer edge of the longer verso border strip in both cream and brown and cut the pattern into the brown layer.  These were glued together and glued onto the card front.

The Patchwork square was cut out of pink card twice and brown card once, these were all mounted onto cream card with one of the pink layers being backed with a brown square and being stuck in place on the centre strip with 3d foam.  The brown patchwork square was cut down and layered onto the pink, again onto 3d foam and finally the last pink patchwork square was cut down to the very centre cross which again was stuck in place with 3d foam.

The With Love greeting was cut in cream and brown and drop shadowed before being glued to the base of the card.  The card was finished with a small grosgrain bow in a light pink and some pearls which had been coloured with a dark brown marker pen.

I hope you like it
