Miss You

Happy Friday, everyone!! I hope you are having a great week!!  Lisa here to share a project with you today using the new Miss You Sweet Phrases die from the March release, which is also a fundraising project for Operation Write Home.

I really enjoyed making the sunburst cards for the joint Die-Versions / Operation Write Home Blog hop, but I used patterned paper for those. In trying to come up with ways to make more cards for OWH while following their guidelines and not adding too many bulky layers (and I do love layers!!), I thought the sunburst pattern would work well with embossing...adding texture without bulk.

I used several different embossing folders for both cards.

For the Miss You Sweet Phrases tag, I embossed the paper first and then cut it with the die so the embossing is very subtle. I then used the die to just emboss the red paper so that it fit perfectly inside the tag.

You can check out all of the March dies HERE.
You can watch videos showcasing the dies on our YouTube Channel HERE.
And we would love to see your Die-Versions projects on our Facebook page HERE.

Also, you still time to hop along with our blog hop with Operation Write Home...but hurry - you have until midnight (PT) tomorrow, Saturday, March 15th to leave your comments for a chance to win!! The hop starts HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Please come back next week to see more fabulous projects from our talented Design Team using dies from the newest release!!
