Multi layered Spellbinders card.

Lately I've been playing with my Spellbinders dies; which I do by die cutting a variety of shapes in different sizes and then seeing how I can assemble them into some sort of cohesive looking stack. This card has a total of nine layers (including the base card). Besides using the dies to cut, I also used them to emboss to add yet another dimensional feel.

First layer: size A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") white base card.
Second layer: rectangular frame. I made the 1/4" wide frame using the largest and next to largest rectangle dies.
Third layer: upper and lower decorative scroll work. The scrolls are the ends of one of the Fancy Labels, which I cut in half and separated to create the needed length.
Fourth layer: left and right decorative scroll work. The scrolls are the ends of another one of the Fancy Labels, this one extended just side from side to side and needed no cutting to adjust the length.
Fifth layer: large background panel.
Sixth layer: inner decorative scroll work. These are actually the left overs from another one of the Fancy Labels.
Seventh layer: smaller background panel.
Eighth layer: scalloped circle.
Ninth layer: small inner circle.

I colored or edged each panel before adding it to the card to help highlight the individual layers and also because i wanted to keep the card as flat as possible, I did not use raised adhesive dots
