LOC Sneak Peek #2

It is time to share my second Sneak Peek of the Layers of Color New Release.  It has been exciting to see the Sneak Peeks from the other girls on the Design Team - these girls are so inspiring and have a lot more to show you before September 19 - the New Release Party!

I have used the Christmas Verses art stamp set

The sentiment is cut out with the Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three Shapeabilitie and has been sponged before removing from the Die.

The verse has been cut out with the Labels Seventeen Nestibilitie, again sponging before removal from the Die.  I always use my Grand Calibur for cutting my Nestibilities - it is fabulous, the cutting is crisp and the embossing just pops.

The Embossing Folder is from Stampin' Up and is a favourite - I love how deeply they emboss!  The flower is from Wild Orchid and was part of a prize I won - it is gorgeous and fits perfectly with the colours for this card.

You can see all of the dimension with this photo and the Hand Dyed Seam Binding - I love that stuff and get myself into quite a mess when dying it - but oh the results - they are divine!!

This card is for the following challenges:
 Crafty Pad - Autumnal colors: Brown, Orange, Gold
I Did It Creations - Anything Goes 
 One Stitch At A Time - Anything Goes
