Forever Friends

Hello all! Just popping in quickly to share a simple card with you today, that uses an impressing technique with Papertrey Ink dies.I started today's card by stamping the sentiment, from Wonderful Words Additions, and the flower, from Modern Basics, onto a white card base.I carefully placed and temporarily attached the "Forever" Wonderful Words Die into place, onto the front of the card base. Then ran it through my die cutting machine, using the proper embossing plate sandwich. This is pretty much the same technique that Erin Lincoln shared in the Make It Monday #13 video, using only the die instead of both a die and impression plate. I then finished the card off with a button and white embroidery floss. Easy peasy!

Well, that's it from me today. Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a super one!
