MFP Sympathy plus Technique

I have a technique today for you!

It involves those Spellbinder dies that come
with several matching styles in different sizes.
For this card I used the "Labels 9" set.

Place some low tack adhesive behind the larger one and the next
smaller die to hold them together on your paper.  Then
run them thru your embossing/diecutting machine twice.
Once to cut and again to emboss, changing the sandwich to
match the job.
You will end up with a frame that matches your label perfectly!

For this card I stamped the images (all by Marks Finest Papers) with 
the die attached to keep the edges clean.  Leaving the paper in the die, I airbrushed some
Copic markers very lightly for a background color.
I airbrushed the frame with slightly darker Copics and popped it
up for dimension.
I tied some satin ribbon (Offray) and added a white rose (Jolee's) that
I had airbrushed some matching color to on top.
Corner punch by EK Success and inks used by
Color Box Chalk "Blue Iris" and "Smoke Blue"

IRL the frame looks lovely.  Hopefully you can see the dimension also.
