Taylored Expressions October Release Day…


Hello everyone! Are you loving the release this month?  Some beautiful designs for the holidays. Everything is now available in the Taylored Expressions Webstore.

Today I’m featuring the NEW Merry Christmas Cutting Plate die. I started my card by die cutting it twice from watercolor card-stock, carefully inking and  embossing the words with gold embossing powder and then coloring the botanicals with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers and a waterbrush.


I used ⅛th inch scor-tape around the frame, poured embossing powder on it and embossed it also.

I sandwiched/glued the card-base between the two Merry Christmas die cuts, so I would have a see through card strong enough to stand. One side of the card-base is only an ⅛th inch, just enough to glue to.


A pretty, just a touch rustic, vintage looking card.
