Note: All the stamping is done with the gold embossing powder.
For the back and front of the card, cut x2 18.3 cm x 13.4 cm. For the hinge, cut 13.4 cm x 3 cm. Adhere together to form the card base. Cut the matting as follows, 17.3 cm x 12.3 cm, 16.7 cm x 11.7 cm, 16.1 cm x 11 cm. Place and adhere all layers to the card base. Taking the Decorative Oval die and card stock, die cut x5. Adhere one layer at a time so you can make certain all is aligned. This will form a chipboard. When all is dry apply the Inka Gold to the out side edges. Center and adhere the oval to the card base.
Taking the stamp image used for this card from the Berries and Peaches stamp set and matching die. Stamp, color and die cut x 2. Cut away the peaches and leaves from one of the die cuts.
See how the gold embossing makes the stamped image so royal.
The dies to match the peaches makes ones like so much easier! Love them!
Fussy cut the butterfly. Shape all the cut images using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Stamp the sentiment x2. Cut away the word berry from the sentiment. Bring color to the edges with the Inka-Glod. Arrange and adhere all in place with the Double Dots cut to size and glue. To finish, add stickles to the butterfly wing.
See here the sentiment is stamped cut and edged with the Inka Gold. Tucked in and under, this does not take away from the rest of the embellishments.
