Just like pretty printed paper, it's VERY difficult to cover up this type of die...I just want to see the WHOLE design! I decided to emboss the image instead of cover it up!
After embossing the panel, I mounted it onto some dark burgundy cardstock and discovered the card was matching one of my favorite mugs! (@brookemillecchia_ceramics on Instagram). I grabbed it off my cup shelf so I could use it in my photos! Love when that happens! LOL
After adding it to the burgundy panel, I attached a pretty piece of chocolate satin ribbon, some golden threads, Hemptique chocolate twine and some golden ric-rac...then topped it off with a heart shaped veneer!
I'm also sharing this fun card created using the Zen Coffee 1 Cover Plate Die. I really love the collection of coffee images mixed with loops/swirls/leaves and dots...It's like the images are just floating along on a wave of Coffee! I wanted to keep the cuts and the frame together so after watercoloring a panel using Nuvo Shimmer Powders, I cut the panel and glued it directly onto a card base. So easy, peasy!"Fall For You" using VersaClair ink. I think the sentiment works perfectly with the falling coffee cutplate, don't you?! After mounting it onto some fun colored cardstock, I added a little piece of gray ribbon and mounted the sentiment onto the panel with foam squares. To finish it off, I added a few metallic pearls that help make the silvery shimmer pop on the card.
Thanks so much for hopping along with us today! Please hop on over to Katie's blog to check out her gorgeous creation and GOOD LUCK!
