Hello Crafty Friends... I am really excited to get to start off Team Cut'n'Boss week with awesome dies from our May/ June sponsor... Die-Namites!! Their dies are just GORGEOUS and super detailed!! 

And, the WONDERFUL folks at Die-Namites will be doing an awesome GIVEAWAY for the first week of sponsorship!! How AWESOME is that?!! 

For today's project I made this simple yet beautiful thank you card... because we can be "thankful" all year long not just during the holiday season!

eBrush (Craftwell)
Spectrum Noir Markers ( CR1, CR5, CR6, CG4, BT6, TN4)

Fluffy Branches by Die-Namites

I first used my Cut'n'boss machine to cut both my Fluffy Branches and Thankful dies. I cut the Fluffy Branches out of coral cardstock and the Thankful out of a shimmery green cardstock. Both can be found in the open stock of your scrapbook/ craft store.

To cut my dies I used the following "sandwich" to cut my dies...

From Bottom to Top
D Plate
A Pate
Magnetic Plate
Metal Die
Metal Plate
A Plate

Since both dies are wafer thin dies and the Cut'n'boss machine has an extra large platform I can run both dies through at the same time! Awesome time saver!! Us moms are always grateful in saving time anywhere we can, right?!

Oh my gosh... cuts like BUTTER!!

Next I airbrushed my die cuts with my eBrush machine and Spectrum Noir Markers!!

Once shaded I snipped one of my flower Die cuts in half and removed the leaf... the other I left alone. I set that aside for a quick second and embossed my card base.

Because , the thickness of wafer dies and embossing folders are totally different I needed a different sandwich combo...

To embossing with my Cut'n'boss I used the following sandwich combo...

From Bottom to Top
D Plate
A Pate
Embossing Folder with Paper 
A Plate

I  gave my pieces a quick run through my Xyron Creative Station... to ensure maximum hold. And pieced my card together. 

Before sticking my "thankful" die cut on I bent it in between each letter so that my word formed an arch. "Arching" my word adds a bit of whimsy to my project... don't ya think?! I then adhered it down with my glue pen. I then made a twine bow and topped it with a button and glued it down with some glossy accents.

And here is my finished card...

This card was just so much fun! And the Die-Namites dies and Cut'n'boss dies and embossing folder go great together... Like peanut butter and jelly I'd say!!

Now, to enter the GIVEAWAY, leave me a comment below and hop on over to the Die-Namites team post, and leave them a comment! At the end of the week we will pick a random winner! 

Remember, one comment per day, per post!

Hope you enjoyed my project as much I enjoyed making it!!
