A Leafy Birthday

Anyone out there remember (or still own) the original Sizzix press-style die cutting machine?  It’s so easy to use – no complicated sandwiches, and their dies cut beautifully every time.  I have quite a collection of them and am really happy to give them a good workout . . . this one is the Jelly Frame . . .

As this card was for the July birthday of our grandaughter, I went to town with summery Distress colors.  These were smooshed on an acrylic block, spritzed twice with water, and stamped.  For extra texture looks, heat dry and then stamp again with what’s left on the block.  You’ll get instant splots and dots of interesting color variations.  Easy peasy!
