This series of cut-and-emboss dies from Anna Griffin are absolutely beautiful. I do need to pass on a word of caution that you will need to work with shims to find out the right pressure for this beautiful, intricate die. In the card, Bev has used the ice-silver shimmer cardstock which creates an elegant appearance for this cutout. The print cardstock that she has used in behind is a taupe mini-print. Keep tone on tone in mind when you're trying to create some simple feeling of elegance. The verse is from Impression Obsession and the font just adds to the overall look of the card.

Keep in mind when you're using a die this size (5 x 7) that it is very easy to cut-down to the size you need when you have an open floral design like this. If you are using a Sizzix BigShot, in order to emboss, you'll need to use your tan embossing mat, one cardboard shim, and remove the top flap from your platform stack.
