Memory Box – Boddington Hillside
I have had this die for a while, and I was really saving it for this sort of card, the kind of card that would let me play with watercolors and do whatever I wanted, then slap this die cut out of white paper on top for a very easy card, and so it was. You're going to want this die! (sorry 'bout that) Lookie:
GOJUS! (YILM!) I loosely painted the background to mirror the die, though I wasn't looking at it at the time, so it's not exact but it's pretty close.
I used a Hero Arts set for the greeting, stamping in Versamark and embossing with Hero Arts White EP.
I had to use a shim with this die to get it to cut all the little areas since my Big Shot is 8 years old and has loosened up over time.
I used a combination of Brusho crystals and Peerless Watercolors to create the background.
I used my Tombow Stamp Runner to put adhesive on the sides, but used my 2-Way Glue Pen to coat the back of the interior of the die cut to adhere it to the watercolor paper. So GOJUS!
I love this die and can see many beautiful cards emanating from it!
