Make it Monday and Cure the Monday Blues


When I saw the inspiration picture at Cure for the Monday Blues and the theme at Make it Monday I just knew I had to combine them! The fabulous Danielle Flanders made a wonderful video showing you how to to gold dipped die cuts.



It super easy - all you need is Versamark ink and gold embossing powder. You ink up a part of your die cut with Versamark and then sprinkle embossing powder on  it and heat emboss it. Looks great!
Here is a close up


All my dies are Papertrey. I did some inlaid die cut technique for the Joy. The trees are mounted on foam tape. Added gold thread.


And here is the wonderful inspiration picture:


I am also linking this with the Snippets Playground - its all snippets - except the card base....

Have a great day!

Cornelia, saw this over at the Snippets Playground and had to pop by to say how very beautiful it is. Love the look of the glittered tree dies, and just wonderful with the pink color for this theme. TFS the link & will be off to watch it. Sorry for being MIA for a while! Good to see you visiting the Playground and I had a chance to catch up with you. TFS & Hugs
