Cherry and Blossom Cuddles

This card helped me to win a Feather in my Cap at Digi Choosday :)

Here is a card I made which has embossed layers to give it a 3D effect.

The image is a digi stamp from Polkadoodles and is called Cherry and Blossom Cuddles.  It was coloured with Spectrum Noir markers, then die cut with a scalloped square. The edges were inked with Memento Dandelion and the ink was blended towards the image to take away the starkness of the white background.

A piece of yellow core'dinations card was cut and it's corners rounded. This yellow card was mounted onto white card which had been dry embossed with a folder from Xcut called Damask Background. The corners were again rounded. Yellow organza ribbon was attached around the mat and the die-cut image was secured on top using foam pads.

The background paper is yellow and white striped glitter paper from DecoTime. This was dry embossed with the Damask embossing folder. A strip of striped paper was also embossed with a free folder called Decadent Blooms (from Issue 131 Papercraft Essentials  Magazine).  An Xcut border punch was used to create the paper lace which was attached to the thin strip of striped paper for the banner.

The  image was glued to the background paper; the banner was attached with foam pads. A glitter sentiment was added to the banner and a ribbon flower with a crystal gem was placed in the top right corner of the image. 

I really love the image - these little bunnies are so cute and there is a whole bunch of them over at Polkadoodles. They remind me of friends giving each other a hug and so I thought they would make a lovely Thank You card.
