Bixby Border Cards

Simon Says Stamp has just come out with a fantastic new release, Diecember®!!  There are a number of very pretty flower dies, I'll call them the Bixby Collection, that are sweet, charming and very lovely!!  I have made two cards with the first of the dies that I have had the chance to work with...the Bixby Border die...
I embossed the die on a card panel, and then colored with my Prismacolor markers.  I then die cut two more of the dies, and adhered them together and then to the colored, embossed panel.  I added a die cut and layered Thanks, and added a gingham border on the bottom.  Here's a close up...
The second one is much like the first except using the die at a diagonal and adding a different Thanks....
 I DID hand cut the embossed die cut and colored border, so I could add a polka dotted bottom panel. I colored the border of the "thanks" with the same marker I used for the leaves, so the colors would be coordinated.  Here's a close up...
Oh my...what fun...I LOVE flowers...and with such sweet, pretty flowers, I think the Bixby dies may be my favorites of this new release!!  Have some more on my desk at this writing...hope to have more to share with you tomorrow!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  3. I love these simple thank you cards. Im a fairly new card maker and would like to try my hand at the pink thank you card. Could you please help me understand how many layers are on the front of this card? I'm having a hard time figuring it out. Thank you.
