Hiya friends, today I’m sharing a card with new Quietfire Dies! Simply elegant, the “Thanks” was penned then put into design by my sweet friend Suzanne Cannon. I love that it’s her handwriting and that it works in conjunction with the Thanks stamp set I used earlier this month in this post. So I made a long profile card that fits into a business sized envelope. Measuring 8-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ I mounted a panel punched with the Martha Stewart Fans and Flourishes border punch to get the length that I needed for the focal panel. To give the die cut word a little bit of dimension against the cream I cut one in Aqua Mist and one in cream (darkened up with Antique Linen Distress Ink) and stacked them together with the bottom one slightly offset – that gives a little bit of shadow.
I finished up with a bow and some pearls! :-)

So I hinted around yesterday that I’ll be starting a giveaway tomorrow. You said you wanted to see some ideas of what to do with my new dies. Well, this is my most favorite gift item, as of late, and is made with my new Swirl Bliss Pocket die. When you see how easy it is to make . . . well, I can’t wait to see what you think. At any rate, I made this gift item in duplicate and one of the two are being given away here. More details coming tomorrow :-)
