Happy Friday and thank you for hopping along with us! This is a special joint blog hop by Operation Write Home and Die-Versions. If you are just starting, make sure to visit the starting point of the hop so you won’t miss a thing! If you are hopping along in the order, you probably came from Julie’s Blog at Handmade By Julie.
I am honored to be a part of this blog hop, because I think what OWH does is just amazing! If you are not familiar with OWH, their mission is to support our armed forces by sending blank handmade cards to write home on. Find more information here. If you want to send a card, please follow their guidelines.
I wanted to create something simple yet delivers a clear message. Miss Your Face Die from Die-Versions is perfect for such a card. To eliminate any hazard situations and to follow OWH’s guidelines, I decided to keep the card one layer and add couple dimensions on the focal point area. I used a diagonal stripe stamp to create a soft background and added different colors each time. Don’t you think these colors just melt your heart?
The pictures don’t do the justice, but after I cut out the cardstock with the Miss Your Face Die, I embossed it twice with a clear embossing powder to give a fun wet look. I thought it would be cool to pop out the main point with some different texture. As a finishing touch, I added couple of enamel dots to match the rest of the color scheme which help out the die cut piece to stand out even more.
Take a note of the die cut piece one more time – you will see this cool stitched lines around the whole die cut piece. This adds a really nice detail to any project. A lot of dies from the March release have those cool stitched lines, so make sure to check them out.
Thank you so much for spending some time with me today, and I hope you enjoyed my card! Make sure to head over to the last stop of the hop over at Die-Versions Blog. Have a great weekend guys!!
