I use my Spellbinders Flower Pot die cut upside down more than right side up. It is a great shape for images that format into a triangular configuration.
Little Elf Ava (illustrated by Mo Manning) was stamped on a separate piece of white cardstock in Onyx Black VersaFine and heat embossed with clear powder. After coloring with Copics and trimming, she was layered onto the shaped card. A second layer of the arms holding the star were doubled up on top for additional dimension. The background is Warm Wishes stamped in Bamboo Leaves Memento. A soft sponging of white gesso softened the edges.
Have a happy day,
