The 'Fanfare' set is so exquisite and I decided to create a Shaped Card to showcase the design in its full glory. I know, I say this every month, but Becca's dies always leave me spellbound. She keeps outdoing herself each time and I LOVE each and every design of hers. Here's a look at my Card:

To create my card, I first took a sheet of Buttercream Cardstock and die cut the main Card frame die using my Spellbinders Platinum Die Cutting & Embossing Machine.  I used the partial die-cutting technique here to create a hinged card base. If you don't know how to create one, you can check out Becca Feeken's tutorial HERE where she shows you how to create one.

Once my card base was ready, I started working on the main focal for my card. I die cut the decorative inlay piece from the Fanfare Set from Buttercream Cardstock and Gold Mirror Cardstock. I also die cut it from Fun Foam and adhered it to my card base for dimension. Then, I adhered the other two layers over this foam layer, albeit I off-set them a little, so that the gold would peek through.

The filigree oval is super beautiful and I did not want to take the focus away from it, so I kept my embellishments minimal. I die cut a circle from the Nestabilities Hemstitch Circles Etched Die Set and stamped my sentiment on it. I used the Studio Katia Birthday Greetings Stamp Set for my sentiment and stamped it using Black Licorice True Fusion ink. Next, I die cut the fanfare motif die from Whipped Cream Cardstock. I die cut two pieces of them and tucked them in beside the circle on both sides.

For my floral spray, I used the flower dies included in the Fanfare Set. I die cut them from White Deckled Edged Paper and coloured them using Distress Spray Stains in Abandoned Coral and Wild Honey. I also lightly shaped the centres using an Embossing Ball Tool tip from the Stylus Tips for Tool N' One and added pollens to the centres for a more natural look. I also tucked in some leaves and foliage to complete the look. And that's about it! This card was such a joy to create!
