Now on to my cards for today. For the first card above, I used the gorgeous new Adore Him Die. I am soooo in love with this die! I cut out 2 - one from silver mirrored paper and one from Night of Navy card stock. I adhered them together just slightly offset for a shadow effect. To create my "scroll", I used the Leafy Edged borders and cut white card stock on two sides, trimmed the top and bottom to be at an appropriate angle for my card, and then I used the flag pole die from the Pennant Die set, cut off the knob on the end, and hand embossed a ridge instead, which matches the ridge that is embossed by the die on the rest of the pole. I used tiny silver brads and a silver cord for simple embellishments.
To construct the card from the bottom up, I used Neenah Solar Crest 140 lb white card for the base. Next I used the BoHo Background Die to cut silver mirrored paper. This gives a pretty embossed edge to the silver paper, and on it I matted a Night of Navy layer which I embossed with a Darice snowflake embossing folder. I adhered my "scroll" using dimensional foam, and added the cording. This was really simple and lays quite flat, but I love how it came out, and I hope you do too!
For my second card, I used the new Elegant Embellishment stamp set, and the matching Elegant Embellishments Dies, as well as the beautiful Flourished Alphabet set. I stamped the letters to spell "Noel" down the side of the card using Midnight Muse ink, and then I cut the edge with a Leafy Edged Border die, cutting the white and then another from Midnight Muse. I stamped two of the ornaments in the Elegant Embellishment stamp set with the same ink, and die cut with the matching dies. I cut two paper bows from the Circle Ornaments die set, and I "hung" my ornaments with some silver cord. My base is Midnight Muse, and then a layer of white card stock which is embossed with a Cuttlebug flourished holly embossing folder. I adhered the paper bows to the ornaments, and finished it off with tiny silver half pearls from Hobby Lobby. This again makes a pretty flat card and I like the clean presentation.
