Wednesday, the 11th of December. 

I have two cards to share today! 


I started with a soft pink card stock.  I combined The World Needs wafer die with Simon Says Stamp Leafy Frames stamp set and Leafy Frames wafter dies.  I stamped in versamark and white embossed leafy images from the set as well as the rectangle frame.  I sponged versamark onto the background panel and a soft pink into onto the leafy frame panel to create some added depth. 


I die cut the new The World Needs wafter die three times with white card stock and once with Tim Holtz metallic silver kraft.  I used foam tape to pop up the rectangle focal image and Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to glue the sentiment panel.


For my second card, I gold foiled onto a section of Tonic Tropical Tide glitter card stock panel using Therm-O-Web Transfer Gel  and a polka dot stencil.  I ran it through a laminator using Heidi Swap gold foil.  I could have run the panel through the laminator several times, but I love the distressed look of the imperfect dotted background.  


Next, I stamped and gold embossed leaves onto cream card stock by combing  SSS Floral Shapes stamp and dies Even More Spring Flowers stamp set, and Even More Spring Flowers wafer dies.  I added them to the left of the all gold layered The World Needs wafter die.
