Pretty In Purple (Marianne Designs anja Edge)

I have had the Marianne Design Anja Edge die for quite a while but have had trouble coming up with an idea on how to design a card with it.    For the top part of the card I used the Cuttlebug Winter Bundle embossing folder and then die cut the bottom with the Marianne Design Anja Edge die.  Next I used a second piece of scrap white cardstock and the Cuttlebug Polka Dot embossing folder and then punched the bottom part with a Martha Stewart Eyelet lace PATP.   I added some purple cardstock under the Anja Edge to make to stand out and attached the Polka Dot embossed paper under that.  I die cut the following in purple Lace Corner Deco F, Spellbinders Floral ovals and Memory Box Petal Party and Fancy Blossoms.  I also die cut Cheery Lynn Design Fanciful Flourish and Dee’s Distinctively small leaves for inside the oval frame.

To pop up the Purple Floral Oval frame I doubled up on the mounting tape. The flowers are glued in layers and I added a touch of dark glitter in the center.
