Today we'll be using a super set of dies---Check This Amazing Card Using Stampin'Up! Delicate Edges Dies. This is a set of 4 beautiful dies that provide a variety of edges...each with it's own unique twist. It's one of those sets you'll want to have in your basic die stash because each die is a staple design that will not go out of style.
Here's today's card...
We used gold foil to create the leaf "edgings"...the gold gives the card such a lovely warm glow...it just screams autumn.
Autumn colors are my favorite group of colors (except for spring & then there's the crisp winter hues, & those lovely brilliant summer ones...ok, so I really enjoy them all)! But I do enjoy creating with blending the warm fall colors---in this case I used Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, & Cajun Craze---topped it off with the gold foil & this card becomes a classic design that can be part of your ever present stash for a quick grab.
For what occasion would this NOT work? It's perfect for thinking of you, thank you, birthday, just a note, thanksgiving....I used one of my favorite greeting sets (Go To Greetings) becaue I can find a greeting in that set that will fit almost any occasion and size needed. This is a right great set to keep in the front of your greeting sets for quick grab.
Stop back by Thursday and see another version using the Delicate Edges.
