Hi, everyone! Several months ago, I discovered this amazing card by calgirl and just had to recreate it using the mountain image from the Our Daily Bread designs 'Keep Climbing' set and quote from 'Quote Collection 2'. This is a birthday card for DH's uncle. The Spellbinders "Nested Maple Leaves" largest die was cut and embossed twice on white cardstock. One of the two die cuts was trimmed by hand along the embossed line....the mountain image was stamped on this. I tried stamping the image with the paper still inside the die, but the stamp would not imprint clean enough next to the edge of the die. I could have used a lot of extra sponging to hide this fact, but I decided to do it the hard way to get the look I was after. Once it was colored and sponged, it was adhered to the white mat and popped up onto the card with foam tape.
Thanks so much for looking! Have a very blessed day!

Oh my WORD, ANGIE!!!! This card took my breath away, what a great idea, and then, you did it the "hard" way, to make it the best ever!! Truly a work of your heart to make this for your DH's uncle - if he is not already mesmerized by your card making ability, he WILL BE, when he sees this!
