USA 1776 Cut Files

Today I wanted to create a framed card, so I started with Spellbinders® Gold Labels Four and Spellbinders® Labels Four cut at the same time to make a frame.  Then I cut another Labels Four and intertwine them so that parts of Spellbinders® Twisted Metal Tags and Accents falls in front and part falls in back.  I topped off with the smaller size of Labels Four and embellished my flowers with Spellbinders® Foliage.  As you can tell, I was in a foam tape mood today — I love using dies as frames and when elevating each layer, it gives the card depth.

So to recap the layers I used from the bottom up, my card base is 5-1/2″ x 6-1/2″, foam tape, Pink Matting Layer 4-7/8″ x 6″, design paper 4-3/4″ x 5-7/8″, foam tape, die cut layer Gold Labels Four and Labels Four (cut at same time to make frame), die cut layer Twisted Metal Tags and Accents with Labels Four, foam tape, die cut layer Labels Four.  Attach ribbons and sentiment on appropriate layer.
