This is an anniversary card for friends at church.
TIP: If you're not sure whether your sentiment & image will fit inside the die, place the die over the image and lightly trace inside the die shape with a pencil. You can then see where to stamp your sentiment. Afterwards just erase the pencil mark.
The gold embossed frame was made following Gina's technique for it: http://stamptv.ning.com/video/gold-edge-embossed-holiday-card - I just used it on an oval cut-out. (I'm pretty sure she's done a video on an oval frame but couldn't find it :D )
Floral stamp: Faithful Florals (GinaK Designs)
Sentiment: Fanciful Tags (GKD)
Leaf stamp (at bottom of DP): The Vine (GKD)
Back panel: Tim Holtz (Black)
Spellbinders Classic Ovals
Tonic paper trimmer
TIP: I do not have a heat gun (those budget restrictions .....) but I found a very cool tip once on another website to use a kerosene lamp. This is what it looks like: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kerosene_lamp
All you do is hold your powder embossed area over the funnel and keep checking until it's melted. Then move it along.
