Oranment Branch Die (Part 1)

Hello friends!
I am excited to share a project with you that  created with the following die.

This die is very dainty yet it is very versatile....
I even came up with TWO versions of using this die.

I puled out a few different elements from the latest release from Penny Black.
Today's card is Part 1.

tis the season

 I started out with gold-embossing the bauble with the lovely Flourishing Tree Stamp.
With Emboss Resist, I applied bright colored ink from Distress Oxide. 

tis the season-002

 Once I made the die cut, I added an extra piece to make the dainty die a little bit stronger.
I love using dies for dry-embossing. That is exactly what I did with this new die from Penny Black.

Ding---> Love the look of the die , but you don't necessarily want to use the die cut?

Dry-embossing is another great alternative. All you need is adding the Tan Embossing Mat along with your die cut machine. It give you the subtle element without overwhelming your overall design! 
works for me every time! 😊
tis the season-001

I stamped the background with the smallest leafy image from Christmas Sprig Stamp.
The sentiment is from Peaceful Season (love all the sentiment in that set).

Hope you enjoy today's post! I will be back for Part 2.
Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback.

Love the scroll pattern with the dry embossing. The gold embossing on the ornament reminds me of a cloisonné ornament. Really lovely.
