Hello and thank your stopping by! The theme this month at The Twofer Challenge is \”Garden\”. I doubled up on the garden theme by using botanical stamps and dies and secondly, by dry-embossing using a stencil called Garden Leaves (Dylusions). Fun fact…this was the first stencil I ever purchased.
The sympathy card is more subdued with just one image combined with the dry embossed stitched accent panel. When I made the card, the blue violet flower reminded me of a button or decorative snap. I am entering this card in Clean and Simple on Friday\’s \”Use a Stencil\” Challenge I used the Dylusions Garden Leaves stencil to dry emboss an accent panel.
The second card is a bright vibrant birthday card with multiple images and texture. I am entering this card in The Dies R Us \”Birthday\” Challenge I used WPlus9 Doodle Bud dies and MFT A2 Stitched Rectangle die for the accent panel.
The photo above shows the dry embossing better. I am entering this card in The Happy Little Stampers \”Anything Goes With Dies\” Challenge and Little Red Wagon \”Stitched\” Challenge. I used MFT\’s stitched die to emphasize the accent panel.
