Hello and welcome to my blog! I created this card for the new Thankful Challenge starting today at the Dies R Us challenge blog. Come on over, be inspired and join us for a chance to win a gift voucher to the store. The DT projects are stunning!
This was my first time using this beautiful Spellbinders die but I think I'll be using it a lot more in future. It makes it so easy to create an elegant card. I used a 5.5" square card and cut the die twice using my magnetic spacer plate. I then backed the kraft card with a piece of dark red paper.
I sponged distress ink on the leaf die cuts to get a natural mottled look. The thanks die cut was covered in versamark ink and sprinked with embossing powder that I heated. I did this twice so the gold embossing would have nice coverage and really stand out.
The pink rolled roses were colored with Glimmer Mist, the deep red ones were cut with the same background paper. These roses have become staples for me as have the Impression Obsession word and greeting dies.
