Memory Box - Glowing Candles

Having bought this die in the earlier part of the year at a craft show I did not remember it until I was searching through my die stash.  I think I have found my quick and easy mass produced Christmas card !!

The die is Glowing Candles from Memory Box used with a Tim Holtz Sizzix embossing folder called Distressed Frame.  I did have to trim the card as the frame is a bit smaller than the cards I have.

Distress Ink on Foliage

This is a plain and simple card where I picked a fern out of the garden and inked it up with Peeled Paint Distress Ink.  I picked up the fern placing it on a scrap piece of paper and lay the green and white leaf design paper on top of the fern gently pressing down.

I have tried the same technique with a feather and other leaves but it ended up a bit messy.  I think the fern gave the effect I was looking for and it also has given me an idea to use it on the Gelli plate.
