I bought this beautiful Penny Black die last week. I love iris, it is probably my favorite flower. The challenge at Addicted to CAS this week is LOVE. Since I had all my valentines cards done already I went a different direction and made this card. I ran the die through twice, once in lavender and once in green cardstock. Then I cut each and glued them on top of one another. The base is a spell binders bark embossed cardstock and the label is a sizzix die. I stamped the greeting with Eggplant versa magic and secured it with green brads on a silver edged ribbon. It has several parts but a very Clean and Simple look.
Attending the online stenciled class taught me to use the negative space of die cuts as stencils. So I can now often get two cards each time I use a die. The card below was created with distress ink and the Hero Arts greeting stamped with the same Versa Magic ink. Simple, but elegant. Thank you very much.
