For the next two weeks of October - the members of Eileen Hull's Sizzix Design Team are making cards using her dies and embossing folders to show that Eileen's dies are not just for making 3D items!
Today I have a card that I made using Eileen's Spring Leaves Die and her Honeycomb Embossing Folder.
First I embossed a white panel with the Honeycomb folder, then I used a stitched edge rectangle die to cut out the center . I adhered the inner piece to the card base. Then I die cut the Spring Leaves out of a piece of Brushed Copper metal sheet. I colored the leaves with Adirondack Alcohol Inks - using Butterscotch, Cranberry and Lettuce.
I layered the leaves onto the center piece on foam dots. Then I adhered the outer frame on thick foam dots so it sits higher than the center piece.
I stamped a sentiment on white, punched it with an oval punch and layered it over the frame with foam dots. I added 3 rhinestones for a little extra bling!
Please be sure to check out Eileen's blog to see how you can use her dies to make cards - I think you'll be inspired!
