Just Us Girls 396 - Word Week

 Dear Ones~
This week is Word Week over at Just Us Girls, and our gal Ina has chosen the word Die-Cuts. Easy, peasy, right?

Here's my card:
I have had this dream catcher die for awhile and this is the first time I have used it. I love it.....don't you? I cut it from white card stock and then did several layers of heat embossing with Ranger's Antiquities embossing powder in Verdigris. I really like the rustic look. The gold background is some wallpaper that I stamped with the feather stamp from GKD and then gold embossed it. Then I cropped it at an angle and die cut the pattern with Tim Holtz's Mixed Media Die. The other background paper is from Paper Wishes from their Twilight Jewels line.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Blue Denim Card Stock
SU Soft Sky Card Stock
HOTP Twilight Jewels Patterned Paper
Stash Wallpaper
GKD Fine Feathers Stamp
GKD Fine Gold Embossing Powder
Spellbinder's Dream Catcher Die
Tim Holtz Mixed Media Die
Ranger Antiquities Verdigris Embossing Powder
GKD Cottage Garden Stamp for Greeting
Stash Gems
