Message in a bottle

Or a vase.  Let's not be nit-picky :-)

This week's FREE make-and-take card features die sets from two different companies.  First, the focal images are from an amazing set (that's right - you get all of those vases in one package) from Impression Obsession.  What a wonderful way to use up your scrap paper!  Add depth to the images by shading around the edges and popping the center vase.  I was also thinking these dies would be a perfect way to salvage background stamps that weren't completely inked or stamped "perfectly".  Just cut out the good parts, and you're good to go!

The other die set is the ovals from My Favorite Things.  One of the things we love about their nested shapes is the little pierced detailing around the edges.  Doesn't that finish off the card beautifully?

Stop in Thursday and make one for yourself, any time between 10 & 8.  And then write your own "message in a bottle".
