More QUICK CARDS . . .

. . . using embossing folders and dies!

Morning All!
It's a beautiful Saturday here in Ohio and I plan on getting outside
just as soon as it warms up a little bit more ... but in the meantime, I wanted 
to share with you a few cards I made the other day for my upcoming show on Wednesday.

If you're anything like me, when a new product comes on the market, I just HAVE TO HAVE IT!
And what was the case with the 3d embossing folder.  I purchased several, 
created a few cards then moved on to something else.  WELL, they are beautiful and thought
it would be a good idea to create a few cards & just add die cuts for embellishment.  

What do you think?

Obviously I have used the same Spellbinder 3D - M-Bossabilities (E3D-006) embossing folder for each card but in a different color.

The Spellbinder Labels 18 coordinates with this embossing folder and I have utilized the Labels 18 one step further ... besides simply die cutting the panel, by laying the next size smaller DIE on top of my background die cut and tracing around the outside edge with a white Gelly Roll Pen.  This added yet another layer appearance.  Only on Card #3 did I do something a bit different and did faux stitching around the embossed edge of the background die cut panel.

The flowers on all the cards were created with two Creative Expressions Sue Wilson dies sets.

My word dies are also Sue Wilson dies ...

Quick, Easy and Beautiful!  Perfect for you need a quick card and can be adjusted to fit any occasion.
Well that's it for me today.  I'd better get a few more craft show things finished up and get outside.  This weekend is going to be 70s here in Ohio and I'm in desperate need of some sunshine!  LOL
