A Female 'CAS' Card

Today I'm sharing  my latest design team card 
made for the Dies R Us Inspirational Blog.

All the details on how I made the card can be found HERE

I made this card recently for a friend who loves fancy umbrellas, so
I thought this Bugaboo digi image would be perfect for her, which I coloured myself with Promarkers. This is another one I selected as part of my recent prize.

I started with a card base measuring 4.5" x 5.75"

Taping the largest die from the Lawn Fawn - Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables
onto the card front with low tack tape, I ran it through my die cut/embossing
machine to emboss the frame onto the card.

Here is how the front looks after embossing the frame.

Next, using the Budding Vine embossing folder from Craft Concepts, I embossed a
smaller piece of white card, matt and layered it onto some lilac
card and glued it directly to the card base..

I used a darker lilac piece of card for the Lawn Fawn - Say Cheese Die, glued
the coloured image into the window, and added some twine.

I attached it to the card front with 3D foam tape, added some sequins and
enamel dots to finish.

Here are the items I have used:-
