MIM #184: Gold-Dipped Die-cuts

Just a quick post today....

I am travelling to Minneapolis today with a bunch of women from my church 
to attend the Women of Faith Conference and to do a little shopping.

I want to share a card that I made this week for this week's
I made it for my friend, Mary. She's the organizer of our yearly trip to Minneapolis
for the WOF conference and I wanted to let her know how much her hard work is appreciated!


I used some American Crafts patterned paper as my background.
I die cut the leaves (also AC) with Leaf Prints and dipped the edges in gold embossing powder.
The sentiment is also heat embossed in gold (Wet Paint) and the die cut is
cut from Rustic Cream card stock.

Thanks for looking!
