Making an impression

Hello all!

Gotta a quick pre-Easter weekend post. This card utilizes the newest Make It Monday Challenge which is to emboss with dies. I've really only ever done this with Spellbinders dies so was intrigued with the possibility of using PTI dies to emboss.

For color inspiration, I used Heather's latest Totally Hues color palette - so FABULOUS!

I am loving the turning a new leaf dies!!!

I embossed the lemon tart background with the largest Turning a New Leaf die to create the embossing. Then I used the leaf die to cut leaves from simply chartreuse cardstock. The cute little roses were created by cutting a spiral from raspberry fizz cardstock - there's a tutorial HERE at Kay's Kreative Korner. The butterfly from Love Lives Here was cut from aqua mist polka dot paper and vellum. The vellum butterfly was then embossed with the alphabet impression plate. The butterfly is popped up on a dimensional and pink glitter was added to the center heart. I just realized how little I actually stamped on this card :) Just the sentiment really.

Anywho, hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend. Any big plans? We've got Easter brunch plans with friends and some spring home improvement projects :) 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
