ID: MC Mar/16 - Phoenix Frame - ECD With Sympathy - May Each Treasured card
size: 7"w x 5"h

Created: March 14, 2016

I used this die the other day, so it was still laying on my table... and then the Phoenix die is one of my newer dies that hasn't been put away yet... and you know the rest - one thing let to the next.

One of the "A Way With Words" dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs ("With Sympathy"), designed by Suzanne Cannon (also available HERE). 

I'm also using a quote stamp  on the inside "May Each Treasured Memory..."  from Quietfire Design  

Silhouette OnLine store: ("Butterfly Circle Frame")


Side folded my brownish toned card and spliced on another piece to create a 7"w card.

Inked the embossing folder (Cuttlebug Anna Griffin "Climbing Rose") using Distress "Ground Espresso, ran through machine and then sponged "Antique Linen" all over, then used the Linen pad direct to paper to add depth. Trimmed down and adhered to front.

Adhered a piece of cream toned cardstock through the center, 1" h, the width of my card. Adhered a piece of cream toned gauze ribbon.

Die cut 4 of the "Phoenix" shapes (Creative Expressions Sue Wilson Gemini Dies), sponged with "Wild Honey" on the flower, "Twisted Citron" on the leaves and "Mermaid Lagoon" on the scrolls. Adhered them together to create the frame and then fussy cut the excess overlap from the outer edges. Adhered to card front.

Die cut the "With Sympathy" from white cardstock, inked with Versafine "Vintage Sepia" and embossed with Emerald Creek Hot Stuff "Burnt Copper Leaves" embossing powder. Adhered to card front. Final touch added white glitter enamel dots to the flower centers.


On the inside: stamped the quote using Distress Picket Fence pad, and embossing with white detail embossing powder.

Created an eCut file of the Peonies (Altenew), cut with my electronic cutter on CP watercolor paper (smooth side), stamped the Peonies then colored with Tombows, then spraying with Perfect Pearls "Perfect Pearls" mist. Adhered to inside.

The glittered butterflies are from eons ago eCut (Quietfire "Butterfly Circle Frame") from white cardstock colored with various distress colors and Stickles Dry Glitter "Star Dust" sprinkled on.

As a final touch added the white gel pen faux stitched border.
