Cream and Rust Sympathy

This card looks complicated, BUT when you deconstruct
and take it step by step it is simple.

A cream card base is the start.  
Now a cream 4 x 5.25 inch card stock
that is run through an embossing folder
and layered over a rust.  This was
trimmed to a narrow border using layering rulers.

The frame is from two Spellbinders dies.
I place both of these on the card stock at
the same time and tape into place with
low tack masking tape and after
cutting it is embossed using the rubber embossing mats.
The edges of the inside and outside have
been sponged with a rust ink.
On the back side I have created a 3-d
look using the cut up flat pieces of a paper egg carton.
This is then put over a piece of EK Success dp.

The phrase is stamped with VersaMark ink
and embossed with dark green embossing powder,
layered over rust and both have been cut with
Spellbinders Nesting ovals.
This is also raised for a 3-d look with
more flat pieces of paper egg cartons.

Shaped rust flowers and dark green leaves
from Punch Bunch are arranged on the
upper left and lower right corners of the frame.

See, it was easy.  Step by step and you have
a lovely elegant card.

Bronze butterflies are die cut using
Cheery Lynn Designs dies.
