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.
