Simple Card ...

Hi Everybody,

This has to be one of the easiest cards ever to be made and  it is just one  3DM-Bossabilties folder and  the die that matches it.

These are the latest dies to come from the CHA show in California and   I bought them  from Create and Craft.

They are so new I can't show you the photo of them but if you were lucky enough to get them too then you will know how pretty they are.

They are the Labels 34 ... Decorative Labels 34 ... Gold Labels 34 and the Labels 34 Medallions embossing folder.

I have cut my base card from the  Hinged Card Style  tutorial  using 5x7 Matting basics A and B

I embossed a piece of white card and layered it onto some black and the embossing is so deep.

My stamped sentiment has been cut with Labels Thirty four and the Gold Element added to the inside and then layered again onto some black

And that is it ... and you can do this from any folder and dies that you have in your collection.   Simple but effective for a quick and easy card.

  More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
