November 22/11  "Square Dies or Thanks"

Created: November, 2011

Size: 4.25"w x 5.5"

This week's theme is to use square dies or Thanks

I'm continuing to play and have fun with Distress Stains.... And this card is a little outside my normal. Lots of "white" space.

I've used a Thanks stamp set from Quietfire Design.

I stamped the grid pattern (Penny Black "Warm Wishes" #40-074) on some white cardstock with Perfect Medium, clear embossed then applied Distress Stains (Scattered Straw, Rusty Hinge & Walnut Stain). Misted heavily with water, tilted to blend colors, then dried. Ironed off the embossing and cut into various sized uneven strips.

Placed double sided tape on my cream card, wider than the strips, and adhered them in a chaos type cross over. Sprinkled Ritz micro fine glitter "Java Bean". Burnished well.

Stamped the "thanks" onto the same cream cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx and masking the edges. Clear embossed. Then used Vintage Sepia and stamped the "thanks" off the edges both right side and upside down...

Die cut with Spellbinders square die set, sponged with Distress Dried Marigold, misted with Perfect Pearls "Sunflower Sparkle". Adhered to card with pop dots and added amber rhinestones at each corner.
