Manhattan Flower Texturz Die

I don't know what I ever did before without the Big Shot. I love that thing! My husband gave it to me as a Christmas gift and it is one of the best things he has ever given me.

I also love all of the "stuff" that goes with it, especially the Manhattan Flower Texturz Die. I got the idea for these cards from another blog that I follow on occasion, but of course, I modified them.

I used the Oval All stamp set along with the scallop oval punch from the Occasions Mini Catalog to add the sentiments. These are stamped in black ink.

I got the ribbon from the same catalog; the 5/8" satin ribbon on page 17. I love that ribbon too! It is beautiful.

The pattern for the folder is an old "stand by" from a few years back. I sponged the folder flowers with ink, then I rubbed versa mark on them, sprinkled with a little Iridescent Ice, heat embossed with my heating tool and...voila! I don't like how the sentiment on the folder turned out...I should have removed it before photographing, but sometimes with my schedule, I'm lucky I even get something stamped and photographed, let alone on the blog.
I used paper and ink from the Soft Subtles family and vellum paper in the die.

I hope you like what I've done and...
Thank you for visiting my blog. :)
