Thinking of you

I'm very excited to share my first official Creative Expressions Design Team project today.
For this month, we're working with the Winter Flowers stamp sheet, so I'll be showing more projects using this set, and more inspiration can be found by visiting the rest of the DT's bloggies.

Stamp the image onto Milk cardstock using Versamark, emboss with black powder. Take a Spellbinders circle die, place over the image and mark, with a soft pencil line, where the image overlaps the circle.

Cut out the parts that extend beyond the pencil lines.

Replace the die, lining up with the pencil lines. Bring the cut out portions to the reverse of the die, so that they will remain intact after cutting. Cut out the image.

Colour the image using Distress Markers, then use Old Paper Distress ink to define the edges.

Apply Old Paper distress ink to the Meadow mask by That Special Touch. Run through the die cutting machine to transfer the ink and to emboss the card. Define the edges with Old Paper DI

Die cut a Scallop Circle and a Labels One and mat onto the card front, along with an embossed greeting on a Fancy Tags die cut. Finish with a Seam Binding bow.
