Manhattan Flower

Oh, it's good to be back!

After the crop on Sunday, I just had to spend some time in my craft room yesterday sorting everything that I had packed up to take with me. I also got to sit down and finish a couple of the projects that I started but didn't have everything I needed to complete them on Sunday.

This card is very simple, yet very elegant, and very easy. I made it using the Manhattan Flower Die. Remember the brass templates, stylist, light table, and great amount of patience you needed to achieve the dry embossed look? Well, put all that stuff away! Now you can create that same embossed look with one simple step. The Manhattan Flower Die is a Textured Impressions Die used with the Big Shot. It is basically a heavy plastic folder. Just choose your cardstock, put it in the folder, run it through the Big Shot, and viola! You now have a beautiful embossed piece you can use for a card, or an embellishment for a scrapbook page. This particular die also coordinates with the Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp Set. Check out that little flower. That is one of the Fleurettes, they are crocheted flowers and come in an assortment of 12. The Thinking of You is from the Trendy Trees Stamp Set. I have a very cute card to share with you using that about tomorrow.
