5.5w x 4.25"h

I just got this Sizzix die and a bunch of other stuff from Suzanne at Quietfire Design, love it. I also got the Cuttlebug Art Deco embossing folder set and found it went so well with this die. The sentiment is also a Quietfire Design, but one I don't use too much because of it's size, but boy did it fit perfectly for this card. I usually use the smaller version of the same stamp.


So I die cut the frame (Sizzix Frame Back Ornate #2 #656577). Sponged Distress Walnut Stain around the edges. Used my rubber mallet to do selective embossing with portions of the Art Deco set #2000420 the frame, and Stylized Flowers #37-1232.   Then  sponged the high points with Vintage Photo. Stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black Onyx.

The brown background was made using a favorite technique, laying slivers of various cardstocks and decorative papers on white cardstock with double sided tape. Leaving space between the strips to emboss with embossing powder, in this case with Espresso. Trimmed it down and layered to a side folded cream toned card. Added the dark amber rhinestones to the frame and adhered it to the card.
