I made this card today. I picked up that word die yesterday at my stamp club meeting. I've had my eye on it for awhile but it hasn't been available. Luckily one showed up and my dealer grabbed it up for me.

I learned a little trick today about sanding an embossed card to show the white core beneath--leave the card in the embossing folder. It helps give definition to what you are sanding. 

The Fine Print: Stamp "Plane and Simple" and embossing folder by Stampin' Up, die cut word by Couture Creations. Look! And eyelet! Set with a hammer and everything!
