Remember



Today's card incorporates two of the new April releases from Die-Versions:  Remember Express Edge Mini and the Hexagon Punch Border.

One of the things I like to do is to try and recycle items that come in my junk mail.  This Dream Catcher, which was originally a key ring, was one of them.  I started thinking about the various rubber stamps I have and remembered having a couple that centered around the word "dream".  This Stampers Anonymous (CMS 037) rubber stamp was heat embossed using Sparkle N Sprinkle's Native American embossing powder.  I also carefully sprinkled more of the embossing powder on top of the black cardstock and heat set it from the bottom.  (See you don't have to use Frantage powders to get that same look.  Try what you've already got on hand first.) 

To create the background, I started off by cutting a piece of white cardstock the size I wanted and then die cut the Hexagon Punch Border die all the way across the panel until the entire area was cut out.  Distress Inks (Salty Ocean, Vintage Photo, and Squeezed Lemonade) came out next to ink up the white cardstock.  The Remember Express Edge Mini was adhered to the side of the now colored background panel.

A little distressing along the edges of the card base and you're all ready to go catch some dreams.
