This simple Cross Die-namics pairs up SO well with the new Beautiful Blessings Stamp Set so I HAD to use them together on this card! I wanted them to both shine so I kept the rest of the card pretty simple and highlighted the cross with a floral arrangement. The cross will come in so handy for so many occasions! Births, weddings, holidays, and yes, even for condolences. The fact that it’s such a CAS design means you can do so much with it so let me show you what I did. To begin, I wanted some “light” rays emanating from it but I wanted it subtle so I dry embossed Radiating Rays Stencil on Some Sweet Tooth card stock for the background. I framed that with Elegant Rectangle STAX Die-namics and adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base.
I cut Cross Die-namics from Gold Sparkle card stock and popped it up on foam tape for dimension, then added the bouquet of Mini Rolled Roses and Fab Foliage Die-namics. To finish off, I heat embossed the sentiment on Heavyweight Translucent Vellum with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder. I love this powder and don’t use it enough—it shows up better than white but is still unobtrusive in the design. I popped this up on clear foam tape and it was done. Tip: place bits of clear foam tape behind the sentiment and you won’t see it at all.
And that’s it! I hope I’ve given you some ideas for using YOUR new November goodies in some fun and creative ways. Thanks so much for stopping by…and happy shopping!!
