Today I am sharing 3 cards using just one die! The LARGE OUTLINE THANKS die gives you so many options to play with and it’s one of those dies you will be using again and again through out the year. I also grabbed my distress oxides, both inks pads and sprays and had a lot of fun creating backgrounds.

Watch the video above for a step by step tutorial on how I made all these cards and check out below some close-up photos

    Always beautiful Vicky. You are a true professional and have been given some God given talents. I always enjoy watching you create. My favorite is the blue/green one, just like yours. The black offset does make it stand out perfectly. Merry Christmas.

    I was so excited when I wasn’t able to sleep and saw your YouTube video pop up as I was already on the site. I got to be your first comment, 6th like, and I got a personal like on my comment. You are my muse! I started watching you a few years ago for the art journaling pages, but I love all of your work. Thank you for sharing.

    I agree, I really like the last one best. Although you did a great job will all of them its easier to read and digest in groups of three letters than of two. And I like the thin outlines best also. Looks like definitely worth trying!
