Giving Thanks Whisper die from Die-Versions practically makes the card for you. Can't get much easier than that.
Did you know you can emboss with these dies too? Well, you can. I have the Grand Calibur and the sandwich is really simple - the base plate, the die (blade side up), cardstock, the embossing pad, and then the embossing plate. (You'll have to experiment with your machine to see which sandwich works best.)
I ran my die through and embossed on this shimmery cryogen cardstock then I cut the die out of text weight (thin) white cryogen paper. I inked it up with Distress Stains (Rusty Hinge) and placed it on top of the embossed piece. It fits like a glove, giving you a quilted look. Here's a bit better angle so you can see what I'm talking about.
I also dyed my twill and satin ribbon with the same Rusty Hinge Distress Stain. I love how it has different tones, depending on the type of material you apply it too. On the twill ribbon, it's quite a bit darker than the satin ribbon and it's lightest on the paper.
Head on over to the Die-Versions blog to see what the rest of the team has created using this month's new release.
It's always a good time of the year to be thankful for all your blessings. Don't just wait till Thanksgiving time.
