Propose a Toast and Framed Love die

Hi there! Just popping in quickly for day three of the December Papertrey Ink countdown to share a few samples using one of the new sets... Propose a Toast (designed by Lizzie Jones).  This unique set features these sweet champagne flutes which can be used to toast almost any celebratory event. With the sentiments included, this is a wonderful set to play around with!  

I'll also be featuring one of the new dies... Framed Love Die A fun accent that is easy to layer on cards or tags.  

Keep in mind that this set and die will be available for purchase beginning December 15th at Papertrey Ink.

So, let me get right to it...
First up, a card utilizing Propose a Toast and a few pretty gold touches.
I crossed two flutes and filled them with the tilted champagne filler images, using gold ink.  Perfect for adding a bit of movement to your projects.  The edge of the card was finished off with a strip of gold cardstock.
Up next, a simple white on white number.  I began by stamping the Propose a Toast sentiment onto a white cardstock panel.  Then embossed the Framed Love die over it and rounded the corners of the panel.
One final touch... I stamped a trio of berry sorbet hearts for a tiny pop of color.
My next card features a layered use for the Framed Love die.  
The frame was die cut from shimmer black cardstock.  The white panel below it was cut to fit by hand and stamped with a gold bubble border and a sentiment (both included in Propose a Toast).
My final card features the same bubble border image as used above.
Stamped two flutes in a color combo of true black, lavender moon and aqua mist.  The bubbles were stamped next using the second generation stamping technique, to achieve a lighter/softer look.

Well, that concludes today's look at Propose a Toast and Framed Love die. Just remember... they will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning December 15th
