Miss You

Happy Friday, everyone!! I hope you are having a great week!! It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I have a project to share with you today using the new Miss You Sweet Phrases die from the March release, which is also a fundraising project for Operation Write Home.


I really enjoyed making the sunburst cards for the joint Die-Versions / Operation Write Home Blog hop, but I used patterned paper for those. In trying to come up with ways to make more cards for OWH while following their guidelines and not adding too many bulky layers (and you know how much I love layers!!), I thought the sunburst pattern would work well with embossing...adding texture without bulk.


I used several different embossing folders for both cards, all Tim Holtz Texture Fades.



For the Miss You Sweet Phrases tag, I embossed the paper first and then cut it with the die so the embossing is very subtle. I then used the die to just emboss the red paper so that it fit perfectly inside the tag.

I am entering these in the following challenges:
  1. DL.Art - March Linky
  2. Every Day is an Occasion - March Linky
  3. Just B Creative Crazy - March Linky
  4. Funday Friday #40 - Anything Goes
Also, you still time to hop along with our blog hop with Operation Write Home...but hurry - you have until midnight (PT) tomorrow, Saturday, March 15th to leave your comments for a chance to win!! The hop starts HERE.


Thanks so much for stopping by!!

This is outstanding and truly a wonderful cause. I was a recipient of OWH card when my husband was deployed. It truly is meaningful.

I love your white starburst and then BAM! The wonderful front and centered message in red. That is what it's all about. Great design Lisa!

Two gorgeous cards - what a fabulous use of embossing folders!! TFS

Karen said...

My sweetest friend, these are beautiful! The texture from embossing is certainly something worthy of showcasing, which you've proven here. I LOVE that you made the sentiment a pop of red. Your embossing folders are all stunning. Such a creative use not only of the folders, but of the sunburst trend. Marvelous work as always, my dear Lisa! I hope you're having a happy weekend. :o)

Hugs and blessings,
