Right Now

Today is the New Release from Die-Versions.  Today, I'm showcasing one of the new Express Edges Mini.  This is the "Right Now" Mini Edge.  They are smaller versions of the Express Edges, except instead of being 5/8" tall, they are only 1/2" tall.

For this card, I've combined several Die-Versions dies as well as a couple different rubber stamps.  I started off stamping the background stamp (from Just For Fun) with Distress Ink (Vintage Photo) and then heat setting it with Clear embossing powder.  I further distressed the background by adding Tattered Rose and Old Paper to it.  Next, I stamped the "Journey" Stampers Anonymous stamp onto Sparkle N Sprinkle's Embossable acetate with VersaMark and heat set it with Amethyst embossing powder.

"Your" is die cut using the DV Tide Pool font and "begins" is from the Missy Micro font.  The Mini Edge is heat embossed with Sea Foam embossing powder for a shimmery look.

I thought this would be a good graduation card for a guy either starting college or getting his first "real" job after college.

Be sure to visit the Die-Versions Blog for more great projects using all the New Releases and check out the DV You-Tube channel showcasing each of the new dies.

This is so fun! Love the map bg and the fun word fonts. Really like the rolled edge on this too! This would be perfect for a graduate or someone going on a great trip. Would even be a fun invitation to a scavenger hunt or something too. Fun stuff! Hugz!

Fabulous card, Anne! Love the way you stamped the sentiment over the map and car image. It really focuses attention on the statement (which is so true!) :-D
