Embossed Ovals

This is such a delicate card.
The original idea was
CASED from my long time stamping pen pal
Celia Magro. She is a super stamper
and sends me cards that challenge and inspire me.

Begin by layering a 4 x 5.25 inch white
embossed piece of card stock over a light
pink card stock.
I used my narrowest Perfect Layers
edge to cut the perfect layer.

Cut and emboss the two sizes of pink ovals
using Spellbinders Beaded Ovals dies.
Then cut the coordinating ovals that
fit inside the beaded ovals from Spellbinder
nesting ovals.
Now emboss those ovals in the same
folder that you used to make the white
embossed layer.
Attach the pink embossed ovals
to the center of the white beaded ovals.

The smaller oval layers are positioned in
the lower right corner of the card.
The larger oval layers have been make
to stand out from the card with 3-D foam.

The flower and butterflies have been
punched from a pearlized white card stock.
Some clear Stickles was added to both.
There is a adhesive backed rhinestone
in the center of the 2 layer flower.

Bosskut made the flourish which
has been cut from plain white card stock
and attached to the largest of the ovals.

The Spellbinders tag has also been cut from the
pink card stock.
The phrase is computer generated and
was sized at the time of creation to fit this tag.

Leave some comments and let
me know how your version of this
card turned out.


  1. WOW! I came across your blog from your comment on my card on SCS. All of your cards are drop-dead gorgeous. I'm a simple-type of gal and cannot visualize such works of art but I do like them when I see them! Thank you for sharing!

  2. This is so gorgeous. What embossing folder did you use for the background? As usual, love it, love it, love it!!
