PTI MIM Cascading Die Cuts provided just the inspiration I needed for a special 50th anniversary card. I couldn't go home for Thanksgiving or Easter when I was in college. It was too far to drive for just a week off & I didn't have money to fly. My uncle, who I'd only met a couple times in my life, sent me a credit card to pay for gas & told me to come to their house anytime. They also came to my graduation--a long drive with 3 kids including a baby! I wanted a simple, elegant card, so decided to go with black, gold & cream.
After planning out the design on scratch paper, I die cut the 3 Twig Leaf blossoms from a cream panel. Then the leaves from Turning a New Leaf were stamped in Delicata Golden Glitz--gorgeous shimmer in real life. The sentiment from Mat Stack 3 Collection was stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black & I added some black splatters. After attaching the stamped panel to a black mat, the blossom die cuts were inked in Golden Glitz & stacked 2 high. I used rolled glue dots to attach the blossoms over the negative spaces & added black gems. So satisfying when a card turns out the way you imagined. I'm also entering SSS Wednesday.
Thought you might like to see the latest rose bouquet I brought into the house. They're a lot of work to keep up, but I do love the flowers! Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
