Free and Easy!

This week I have been working on my submission to the Allsorts Challenge Blog - the theme was Free and Easy.

I decided to adopt a musical theme in my card:
The silhouette stamps are from Clarity Stamp -

I stamped the sentiment from the Just Rite Forever Friends stamp set

I stamped the frame twice (once with the sentiment, and once on its own). I cut out the frame and mounted it on foam pads to add dimension.

The main topper was then die cut and layered using Spellbinders Grand Ovals and Grand Scalloped Ovals . I inked around the edges with some Distress Ink (Spun Sugar).

 I cut two tags out and then cut them in half and used them to embellish the side of the scalloped oval.

I cut the layered tassels to embellish the right hand side of the scalloped oval using Spellbinders Banners One

These tassels give the card a very luxurious feel.

The background coredinations card was embossed using the new Couture Creations Adagio embossing folder
As it is a large background, I put it through the Grand Calibur twice, taking care not to overlap the pattern on the second run through.

Once the card was matted and layered, I embellished with some black Vintage Ribbon,
a spare die cut tassel and a "waste" heart from the Fancy Tag.

The card was finished off with a gem swirl which I trimmed to fit.

I hope you like it!
