You can create all sorts of various backgrounds using your dies. And this is something I really enjoy doing! I love the latest Spellbinders Phrase Set One set of dies, especially the Thanks die – the font is just so trendy! I used this die to create full and partial faux embossed backgrounds for simple Fall cards I’m sharing today.

CARD DETAILS

I started by die cutting a bunch of Thanks words out of white cardstock which I had previously covered with Scrapbook Adhesive’s Adhesive sheets (on the back). This created a sticker and made it easier to adhere these onto my background. After I had all the pieces adhered I used a rectangle die, the largest one from the A-2 Matting Basics B set and trimmed my panels down.

I also die cut and embossed acorns and oak leaves out of watercolor paper and quickly watercolored these using my Zig watercolor set. Love the way these turned out, I had never thought to watercolor die cuts and I’m super happy I gave it a try.

To finish my cards I added a couple enamel dots in Fall colors and foam mounted my faux embossed panels onto A2 card bases.
