Friday Die Day

Hello friends
 
This week's Friday Die Day is featuring a very useful set of
Die D-Lites - Ferns.
 
The approximate measurements are:
 
Fern 1: 1.35 x 1.50 in
Fern 2: 1.35 x 1.50 in
Fern 3: 1.00 x 1.75 in
Fern 4: 1.00 x 2.5 in
 
This is how they look cut and embossed.

 
I've selected a pre-made mini luggage tag that already has a metal eyelet in place.
Positioned one of the Fern dies.

 
To ensure the eyelet runs through the Platinum machine I've positioned
it just slightly off the edge of my cutting plate.


This has created a nice die cut aperture in the tag.
I've placed some pretty spotty paper behind.
 
 
My card base is Pierced Rectangles.

 
Simply added a silver Hello cut from mirror card and using Phrase Set 2.
Finished card.

 
Some close up photos.
Interchanging the coloured paper could make the card seasonal.


 
Ferns is available to buy now at your Spellbinders retailer,
as it is a Die D-Lite set - these are well priced and
great value with four very useful dies.
 
Tomorrow I'm at Emerald Crafts in Hampshire,
in the lovely New Forest.
I will be demoing all day so if you live that way please stop by
and say hello. Mum is coming along too!
 
Take care friends - have a great weekend.
