I created a card and gable box set in crisp white and a soft bluish silver that has a beautiful matte finish.  It's understated and yet elegant.  Here's what I used:

For the Card: Glorious Gable Box, Tulip Heart Dies, Layering Hearts dies, Love Script die, and Pierced Rectangles dies.  It's pretty self explanatory but just in case you are wondering what the vertical die cut panel is on the card.... that is the top of the Glorious Gable Box die, cut and matted with silver.  I love that!  Both my panels are popped up with dimensional foam tape.  The Love word die finished it off. 


For the Box:  To My Favorite set, Glorious Gable Box, Layering Hearts dies, and Mini Tags dies.  The box is very easy to cut out, and positioning the dies for the fancy cut out is not hard at all.  I did use a bit of removeable tape once I had them evenly fitted in my gable box sides.  I cut the silver paper with the Layering hearts (the largest one) and then cut the love word die from white.  The little tag on top says Love and has a little heart, both of which are heat embossed with silver.  I tied a thin silver satin ribbon on to hold the tag, which was cut with the Mini Tags dies.



To recap, here are the new products I used today:




Thanks so much for stopping by!

I really like to see some empty space on projects; I think the images and embellishments stand out so much better than when things are crammed with stuff; nice job!

Your "love" card using the Tulip Heart is so beautiful, Grace. Using different mat colors means this card could be used for so many occasions...wedding, silver anniversary, Valentine's Day, friendship, sweetheart... Thank you for the ideas........
