Hello and welcome to this week's sketch from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. For today's sketch, I flipped it on it's side and placed the sentiment within the frame. I wanted to use the Downton Abbey Gilt Frame Die from Crafter's Companion for my design so flipping the sketch was a necessity. One of the things I like about this die is that it also embosses the cardstock. It's a new to me technique and this was my first try at it. I think I'm going to be doing more embossing with my dies as time goes by.
What doesn't show up well in the photo, is the sparkly from the Wink of Stella Brush I applied over the sentiment. It added a pretty simmer to the cut out piece on which I stamped the sentiment.
Stamp Sets: Carols of Christmas (Stampin' Up!), Bells & Boughs (Stampin' Up!); Inks: Cherry Cobbler, Garden; Dies: Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies (Stampin' Up!), Downton Abbey Gilt Frame (Crafter's Companion); Other: Clear Wink of Stella Brush
