Jazz Up Those Metal Dies!

Hello friends!

I want to pop in with a quick post about using metal dies in interesting ways.
The TWO dies I used in this card are from Spellbinders.

For the sentiment die, I applied Rose Gold paper on white card stock. I then lined up the word "Celebrate" in white card stock and rose gold paper. 


For the border die, I did something similar....I emboss the upper half "Celebrate" in Rose Gold (Altenew) Embossing Powder. Then I die cut a piece of dark grey card stock and ran it thorough the Platinum Die Cut machine. I then trimmed and glued the two pieces together.

I love how "dressed-up" the dies look! This card is 100% die-cut (no stamping involved)!
Hope you give this a try if you have not done so.

Thanks for stopping by!
Here are the new arrivals from Spellbinders.

Virginia-I am beginning to think your creativity simply grows with each post. I admire you very much. This card is a good example of your creative thought process. Who knew or even thought to use a die as you have? This is something I am going to try. Thank you!

OOOH! All that rose gold look yummy. So rich and warm. Splitting the sentiment and die was perfect to add interest to your design. Also placing on what appears to be cream cardstock was an excellent choice.
