Elegant Emma - Victoria Dalziel

Good morning everyone ,Sharing another card with you today from Tonic Studios Fair Dames and today's card is from Elegant Emma Die Set

Materials used :-
Fair Dames - Elegant Emma Die Set
Greek Temple Layering Die Set
Swirling Frame die set
Papers from stash
Satin & organza ribbon
Silk Rose bud embellishment
Craft perfect card stock
300 GSM base card stock
Nuvo Crystal drops -Rhubarb 

The card is 8"x8" and the card blank and layers are all made from the Greek Temple die set.
To create the base you need to cut 2 pieces of card the same size and the back panel you need to put a score line in and that's going to be your hinge for the front panel.
the paper pad I had in my stash a beautiful frame which I thought went very well with the die.
For this card you need to die cut Elegant Emma out in white craft perfect card stock and then carefully cut her from the frame as you don't need the frame for this card,she is then glued flat onto cream craft perfect card stock.
You now need to find an off cut /scrap of pale pink card stock and cut the die out again but only make sure your card is big enough just to cut the dress out you will then add the pink elements to the die cut using wet glue ,top tip tweezers are ideal for paper piecing as there can be some very small pieces, then again repeat the process with pattern paper and finish the dress .you need repeat this process with all the different colours until she is complete then place the die cut onto your card with 3D foam pads.
To make the sentiment you need to cut twice in deep red and pale pink and glue together with wet glue but slightly off set them to create shadow and dimension these are then glued flat to the centre of the Swirling Frame die as a Plaque then finish with a beautiful bow and rose embellishment. 

Thank you for joining me today
