It's release day, people, and I'm so excited! All of the summer release is available on the Avery Elle website now! I really love that this release seems to have something for everyone:)
My first card uses the new stamp set Swim Team and coordinating die set. I know I'm going to have so much fun making little ocean scenes with these sets!
This next card is a panel shaker using the Petal Panel die and stamp set. This panel has so many possibilities but is so easy to use. I decided to back the open areas with vellum to create a subtle shaker card.
Here's a peek at the back to give you an idea of how the shaker was made.
I have one last card to share using just the Petal Plate Additions dies. These dies are meant to be used with the Petal Panel die but the the shapes can be used for all kinds of designs like say, a flower:) I watercolored some "petals" and arranged them into a graphic flower.
In the background, I used the new Pierced Circle dies. These dies do not cut a line but do cut in the pierced circle design. BTW, you can cut the circles apart, but I used them all together as they came. The pierced design is perfect for CAS cards when you want a little extra texture but don't want your card to get too busy. The sentiment is from the Peonies set.
