Just Because Mini Shadowed Sentiment

Hello there my crafty friends!  Thanks for stopping back by for the final post of the day.  We are showcasing the new shadowed sentiments, starting with the Just Because Shadowed Mini Expressions.  Each word has a corresponding die that cuts a "shadow" where you can seat the sentiment upon.  There are quite a few uses for this, including providing a means for your sentiment to pop a bit more on your card.  It also allows you to raise your sentiment with small pieces of foam for more dimension.  The sentiments can be used with or without the shadow area as well.  If this one tickles your fancy, you know what to do! LOL  That's it for today but we still have a few more days on the blog launch.  We will be starting here at 6am.  Hope you can join us!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, a lovely card and I like sending 'just because' cards especially if I know that someone is having a bad time. I really like the shadowed expressions, a very good idea. All of your mini expressions dies would be so useful and are in lovely fonts. Another great day thank you.

Ann said...

Good Evening Sue. Ohh wow I love this and I love the idea that you can seat it on a different colour.... and then raise it up on foam this alone could be a centre piece. I see the tiniest flowers that are left over from the die cuts or the smallest punch flowers perched up on the top and bottom of the letters. Ohhhh can't wait to have a go. Thankyou so much Sue. Someone is going to be very lucky. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Hi Sue,
Very clever and useful idea. Lovely sentiment too. Love and hugs Alison ( craftyalimecca) xxx

SUZZETTE YANDLE said...

I like that this shadow die allows one to pop up the sentiment without having to die cut and glue two or three of the same sentiment die and "try" to match up the letters. I always have issues trying to match those up. I also like that your shadow cut is not much wider that the letters. A much better look to me than a wide shadow.
