I'm sharing a card today using a cover plate die from MFT that's been in my stash for years and never been used for a card... and as it's a truly beautiful die, I knew it needed to have it's day! I came across it a couple of weeks back when I was searching for something else... so popped it on my desk ready to use.
Firstly, I used Distress Oxides to blend a panel for behind the diecut - using my favourite colours - Worn Lipstick, Fossilized Amber and Picked Raspberry. Then I adhered the diecut, and matted both onto some strong pink cardstock. I cut a strip for the sentiment, and used one from the stamp set that came free with the Creative Stamping magazine this month. I stamped and embossed it in gold -though that's very difficult to see on the photos - in real life it does look fab!
Die - MFT Floral Fusion
Sentiment - Free from Creative Stamping Magazine
Panel - Distress Oxide Colours listed above
Maybe you can see the gold a little better on this pic?
I finished the card off with some sequins and gems - and I'm happy with the result. I think I'll be using this die lots more in the near future!
