close-up photos

Here are some close-up photos on the cards that I made using some of their lovely products. I went for a clean and simple look that is so elegant and perfect for so many occasions. The gorgeous flowers is made using the layered die cutting technique with the Open Blooms die set.

For the background I used the Thanks Frame die that adds a touch of gold to the design and makes it look more elegant. I love that with just one die you get a window where you can nest your focal point while at the same time you get a lovely sentiment.

On the outside border I used the Dotted Starburst Debossing Cover Die   that adds a lovely but very subtle design. It does not steal anything from the focal point but it really adds some visual texture on an otherwise plain white background.

    Hello from Cleveland Ohio, and happy anniversary. I absolutely loved the card you created using the thanks frame die and open Blooms die set. I love the use of guys as you can change colors from one project to the next and make it look completely different just like you can with your layered stamps.
