Can you you believe Flourishes is already turning 5 years old? Time flies!!! For my birthday project I created a card with the Let them Eat Cake stamp set. I cut and embossed a piece of white cardstock with the smallest of the new Grand Decorative Oval Nestabilities die. The cake stand was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, the layers in Tumbled Glass Distress ink. The edges of the oval were sponged with Antique Linen Distress ink. Part of a Finesse Pearl Swirl was adhered to the cake layer part.

Two pieces of My Mind’s Eye Lost & Found 2 Breeze patterned paper were cut and embossed with the second largest Label Eight Nestabilities die. The edges were stitched before blue ribbon was tied around the layers and through a hole punched in the image layer.  A piece of white cardstock was cut and embossed with the largest of the new (and highly addictive) Decorative Label Eight dies. The layers were adhered to the decorative label die cut before everything was adhered to a blue card base.

A sentiment from the Botanical Bookplates Vo. 1 was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with an inner die from one of the Fancy Framed Tags 2 die. The edges were sponged with Antique Linen ink before the tag was adhered right under the ribbon bow.
