Giving Thanks


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.
