Embellies with a Twist - Punches and/or Dies

It is Monday again, so time for my sample card for The Crafter's Cafe Monday's Embellies with a Twist challenge.  Well done to Dawn Turley who was acknowledged for her amazing card last week for the "It Takes Two" challenge!  You can click here to see her card.

Our challenge for this week is to create a project using punches and/or dies.  I made this card for a friend who has recently graduated.

The graduate image is from The Stamping Boutique.  I discovered later that there is actually a female graduate image too. 
I printed the image and cut it out using the largest label's die I have.  I coloured the image with copics, then masked it, put the die back over it again and sponged it so the blue went around the image, leaving the white border.  I used this same technique for the sentiment tag die (but cut off the extra bits on the side).  I mounted the image on the blue card dry embossed with the Sizzix plaid folder, framed this with white card and mounted on navy blue card.  Lastly I added the gems for some embellishment.

Thanks again for visiting.  Have a great week.



  1. Great card Angela. And very excited to see my name in lights, so to speak.... I'm off to see this weeks challenge and see if I can get something made.
