RAK from Renate


Isn't this RAK (random act of kindness) from my friend Renate lovely?  The combination of Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery and gold is incredibly striking and the Top Note Die Cut (#113463) is the perfect background. 

TIP:  Renate shares a marvelous idea on creating dimension without dimensionals.  In this example, she uses Stampin' Up!'s Designer Label Punch (#107590) three times–first in celery for the sentiment and twice in Whisper White.   The white punches below are slightly staggered to be longer (top to bottom) than the celery punch (but keep the sides even).  The white outline and the thickness of the white punches gives the illusion of zowie 3-D!  Cool.
