Dreamees Heart Tree meets tattered lace dies.

Hello Crafters ,
I hope you are all well, today has been a really lovely day lets hope spring is on its way.
Today I have a card to show you from a stamp set I haven't used for a few weeks it is called The Heart Tree and is available here this stamp set was one of the first to go on Create and Craft on the Dreamees debut show back in November.
I have also used papers from the Pretty Projects cd rom available here , a Tattered Lace die called Victorian Square and it is so beautiful, it actually splits up so you can use different elements of it too, then I have added some string, pearls and lace from my stash.
First of all I cut my card to make  a card blank 14.5 cm square in white.Then I choose the pale pink and brown paper collections on the Pretty Pastels cd, to start the layers which I adhered to the card using collall glue. I then cut the Tattered Lace die out of the brown paper I had already printed, these dies release so well, I didn't have to even tap it or anything the pieces just fell out perfectly with just one push through of my grand calibur. I stamped my tree image onto pink paper using a versa mark ink pad,  I heat embossed it in gold. I  split the tattered lace die-cut up into the pieces I wanted to use, the outer edge being a frame for my stamped image, in which I glued to the stamped image paper then trimmed around the die cut to make it level. I added the layers of the card and some lace from my stash across the bottom half of the card, I then chose the middle part of the die as like a square doily, glued that to the top left of the card, then added my topper using sticky pads so leaving it protruding out a little to give dimension. I then went back to the little die -cuts I had left and thought the corners were perfect to pop  on each of the other three corners to add a little detail. I  stamped my sentiment from the heart tree stamp set, added it to the bottom left corner,stamped  3 large and 3 small flowers from the same stamp set , I used a quickie glue pen to add the glue to the flowers then added some glitter to make them sparkle. To finish off I added a string bow and pearls. Thank you for looking at this post I do appreciate it, and would love it if you would like to leave a comment too.
