Avery Elle: Simply Said

Happy Thursday folks!   Today, I'm sharing an Avery Elle card using the set Simply Said Love word die and the coordinating mini stamp set.  Isn't that "Love" die beautiful?


Lately, I'm really loving the look of oversized handwritten font that goes off the edge of the page.  So I wanted to create that look with this word die.  I die cut the word and trimmed it into a small square before I pulled the pieces apart.  After trimming it, I pulled out just the word and colored it with Copics from light to dark.  I love that extra detail and how it makes the word die cut look so warm:)  To keep all the pieces together, I glued a smaller square to the back of the "Love" panel.  


On the card front, I stamped the background in Delicata gold ink.  The look was a little too harsh, so I added a vellum overlay just over the stamped area.  To bring in more gold, I wrapped the card with May Arts gold metallic string.  


Thanks for stopping in and checking out my card!  Don't forget to click over to Heather's blog to see the great card she has to share!


Mahalo and Aloha,

  8. Oh yes, yes! Did you see Amber Kemp Gerstel's word dies that were designed to bleed off a full A2-sized card? I LOVE this look, absolutely LOVE it. And I'm so excited you showed us that you don't have to have a supersized die, just cut down your canvas and use your existing dies! Hello, genius!!!
