It all started with the Leafy Branch die from Savvy Stamps. Isn't it beautiful cut out of Brushed Bronze metal from Add A Little Dazzle? I paired that with the Lots to Say stamp set, also from Reverse Confetti. It was heat embossed with Early Espresso before being dry embossed with my dots embossing folder.
While my Big Shot was getting a workout I decided to try out my brand new Love Notes die from Reverse Confetti. I was SUPER impressed with all the Confetti Cuts dies. (Yes, I bought more than one. ;) They cut smoothly through metal as well as glimmer paper and they released easily from the dies.
My stepped up card has just a few more details that are easy to see. The seem binding ribbon was adhered with score tape in a scrunchy band across the card.
I'm entering lots of challenges with these cards. :) It should be pretty easy to tell how I was inspired.
The Curtain Call challenge ended this morning, but it is what inspired the love message on the first card. I had planned to make a thank you card before I saw this challenge last night. When I saw it I got excited because I knew I could use my new goodies from Reverse Confetti.
Last, but certainly not least is the challenge that started all this. I ordered the die and knew I wanted to use it with Brushed Bronze metal sheets. Lucky me that it was a perfect fit for the current Dazzling Divas challenge. :)
