MHK Designs John 15 Card

Hello, crafty friends! Today over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge, our "twist" is ANYTHING GOES! I hope you'll stop in and join us!
Our wonderful sponsor this month has been MHK Designs, and Mynn Kitchen has loads of beautiful sets for you on her etsy site at
For my card this week, I'm using MHK Designs' "Simple Roses" set. Mynn has included 2 lovely scriptures in this set along with that pretty rose you see here. I embossed the rose on vellum by sprinkling gold embossing powder on the digi as it was coming out of the printer. After heat embossing the rose, I colored it with "Metallic Melon" Gelatos and some Pebbles cream chalk for the leaf. Coloring was easy since I didn't worry about staying in the lines knowing I would be fussy cutting it out.
For the card base, I made a side-fold card using Gina Marie Designs "Fancy Vine Frame Dies" die cut in white card with a fold just below one of the cut lines so the card base would hold together. Then I die cut the same frame in green and adhered it to the front of the card base. Using the same set, I die cut a melon cardstock by PTI that matched my Gelato color. I then die cut another of the Fancy Vine Frame dies from a matching green cardstock (both green papers are from a Stamping Up! paper pad) to adhere to the melon layer.
For the sentiment, I sized it up using my Silhouette Design Studio software and then printed it out on white cardstock. I die cut it with the smallest frame from the same Fancy Vine Frame collection and used my Krylon gold leafing pen to color the edges. I adhere the little vellum rose with a glue dot after layering the panels of the card with various thicknesses of foam tape. 
Isn't that frame set lovely? I'm so excited for my friend Gina as her company is really taking off. If you'd like to see a selection of her dies, embossing folders and stamps, visit You won't believe her prices! This Fancy Vine frame is only $10! 
 Here's a better look at the verse and the rose:
