Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peeks Day 1

Hello! Welcome to the first day of Taylored Expressions October Sneak Peeks! The Creative Team is kicking off 4 days of projects (3 days of peeks and release day). All products will be released on Thursday, October 1 @ 7 AM PST.

Today I have a couple of cards showing the new Picture Perfect dies. These are ideal for making a quick photo card or framing a scene! I love sending photo cards at Christmas, but I will admit that I usually don't make them. Maybe this year! ;)

There are 2 versions of the Picture Perfect dies being released, a horizontal and vertical one and each set comes with 2 sizes of frames. I used the largest one from Picture Perfect - Horizontal below to frame a photo of Sabrina. I used a photo from last year as we haven't decided on the photo for this year's card.

My next card uses the smaller frame from Picture Perfect - Vertical. I die cut the frame onto a sheet of cardstock that I printed solid black toner using my laser printer, then I ran it through the Heidi Swapp Minc machine along with a piece of gold foil. I then created a shaker out of it and added it to a card front which is embossed with the new Holly Embossing Folder.

Here's a better look at the gold foiling:
