Step up your diecut greetings! Colorful & glossy!

NOTE: This post is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp. Thanks, Simon!

Hi all! Today I have a couple of cards with glossy, colorful greetings! I wanted to show how to make them really stand out so first watercolored some background using Distress Reinkers, diecut the greetings using the I Think the World of You and Hugs & Kisses dies, and then applied four layers of clear embossing powder on top. The result is a super glossy diecut greeting!
