VIDEO: Watercolor Backgrounds and Die Cuts with Kelly Latevola

Hello Crafters!

Have you gotten your hands on anything from the new release yet? It's all so awesome it's so hard to pick a favorite! From the get go I fell in love with the Outline Roses Die and the Rose Background Die. Such beautiful flowers for Spring. Today I decided to give the large background die a try :)

Eeep. Spring. Yay!

I really wanted to try something with a white die cut over a watercolor background. Dawn did something similar with the Outlined Roses Die. Well that die sold out pretty quickly, (but I hear it is currently on it's way back - like on the mail truck - way back). I wanted to show you how amazing it looks with the similar Rose Background Die.

You can watch the card from start to finish in the video below.

I really love how the large die cut makes the card. A sentiment and a few small embellishments were all I needed to complete the card.

That Wink of Stella under the glossy accents is such a show stealer! I love using this approach when I'm doing a card with minimal embellishments.

Thanks so much for dropping by!
