Creative Use of the Cover Dies (sort of)

Hello friends!
I want to share more possibilities of using two amazing cover dies from Altenew.
If you follow my blog regularly, you know I like to do many versions of one particular stamp or dies...well, today's post is one of those.  
Shop Simon Says Stamp: Plate A and Plate B
Shop Altenew Cover Plate here


I did a few things a little differently with this design:
~use Neenah kraft card stock for the Plate A
~emboss in Antique Gold with Stampendous Boss Gloss for Plate A
~add colors with Distress Oxide with Plate B
~trim off all borders and adhere it to white card stock
~add a small strip of gold glitter tape (from Altenew Card Kit) with the white-embossed sentiment

Note: if you want to go for a complete smooth golden sheen, opt for Gold Foil Card Stock (it does not disappoint!) for Plate A.


The sentiment is from stamp set from Altenew Card Kit

Wedding season is here. This will be perfect for that very special occasion.

Here's my previous versions with the same dies.

Now, see, I want these dies you little enabler, you. The way you've used them on both cards is so totally gorgeous you've brought out the acquisitive in me. They create so much depth but the real star is how you've chosen to color and embellish them.
