Hope this post finds you well. I am feeling better and have fully recovered from the Colonoscopy that I endured this past Wednesday. All is well. It is important to get the colons checked and you should not skip it just because it is unpleasant to prep. Life is MORE important than the slight inconvenience we face. So, that is my public announcement for the day. Back to the regular share....
Today's card is to remind you to use intricate dies and make it look extra special.
This design is rather easy to do and yet it gives the card the subtle sophistication.
There are just three simple elements: stamping, coloring and diecutting. The extra mile you go for is the inlaid die-cutting part. Notice that I die cut the white card stock? I then inlaid the colored die cut piece and cemented into one piece. This can be done with Washi tape or double-sided tape.
The last part of fit the entire cut piece over the gray card stock. I added the white-embossed sentiment and embellished it with metallic strings and enamel dots.
What do you think? You can expand this idea with many border dies and flower stamps/dies.
This stamp is FREE and today is the last day with any order. If you are shopping, please check out your purchase (affiliate link applied) ----> here at no additional cost to you. Thank you for your support.
Just gorgeous Virginia. I'm listening to you as I'm commenting. You sound wonderful. Loved the insteresting facts about you.
Beautiful card, Virginia! Glad to know you are healthy!
I enjoyed the podcast!
Glad you are feeling better! Love how you inlaid that lovely image to create the border - SO pretty!!
I think you outdid yourself with this card. It's beautiful and love the neutrals you chose to use to make the lingonberries pop.
Yes, I always get my colonoscopies when they're prescribed. Someday, hopefully, they'll find a way to streamline the prep.
I like the use as a border. Great finishing touches.
Your card is so beautiful and thanks for the tutorial!
I love this CAS design!

What a simple, yet elegant technique! Gorgeous card, Virginia!!
This is so pretty!
Oh this technique is great, you always think outside the box. Great idea! I follow my recommended guidelines every 5 years from a history of breast cancer. The Lord has been good, it's been 18 years. I'm glad you had your procedure and all went well.
