Good morning friends! I love a classic go-to card that doesn’t take too much fiddling but really has impact. I tuck those ideas away in a folder and every time I need a quick wedding card, thank you card or just don’t have the time to brainstorm – I go to that folder. Here’s a new one for my folder this year. The laurel wreath die is a fairly new die from the A Gilded Life Collection – Royal Medallions and it absolutely makes the card. I layered it onto Spellbinders Heirloom Oval and love the play between the two dies – the staggered look draws your eye in. (It would also look lovely on the die I used on my last card Spellbinders Oval Regalia). The beautiful new quote from Quietfire Design called I Dwell in Possibility is a perfect fit inside the laurel leaves. The bottom of the focal layer is cut with Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One
Designers Tip: The dimension in the laurel wreath is just begging to be shown. After cutting it in gold, sponge on some brown ink and wipe some off – it’s a bit like antiquing and some will settle in the nooks and crannies to show off the beautiful deboss. The card is 6″ x 6″
