CAS-ual Fridays New Release - Day 1

Hi there!   I'm super excited because today marks the start of release week for CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!   Today we are sharing projects made with the new set Pretty Posies and the coordinating dies.

So this card is kind of fun because it is essentially one layer!   I used a leaf and the largest of the Pretty Posies dies as a stencil by die cutting them from acetate.   I was able to use the negative this created as a stencil and sponged on Distress Inks (Blueprint Sketch and Wilted Violet for the flower, Twisted Citron & Mowed Lawn for the leaves).   It was super easy to see where I wanted to place everything since the acetate is clear!   After I was done with that, I heat embossed the line images over top with gold embossing powder and added the sentiment from Pretty Posies with gold EP as well.   To finish off the panel I wrapped some fine gold thread around the top of the card and then mounted it to a lavender card base.  This will be super easy to go through the mail....gotta love that kind of card!
