I made a card for this week’s CAS-UAL FRIDAYS clean and simple challenge. I embossed a border on the front of the card using a wafer thin steel die. I learned the technique in today’s lesson in A Cut Above, the online card class I am currently taking.

Here is the finished product. “You Are My Sunshine” has always been a sentimental favorite of mine. When I saw a stamp with part of the lyrics, I just loved it. Not having the stamp, I made a computer generated sentiment and die cut it for my card.

I used a Spellbinders square die to emboss the border. Memory Boxes’s Petit Umbrella was used for the umbrellas. The banner was cut with a My Favorite Things die.

It all went together so quickly.
