Friday Die Day

Hello friends
This week's Friday Die Day features Spellbinders
Swallow and Heart, such a pretty die set!
The approximate measurements are:
Swallow: 1.55 x 1.30 in
Heart: 1.90.40 x 2.30 in
Flower Small: 0.50 x 0.50 in
Flower Large: 0.70 x 0.70 in
Banner: 1.90 x 0.40 in

Five dies in the set and this is how they look cut/embossed.

I prepared a card base with two white mats - 6 x 6 Matting Basics.

I stamped a sentiment onto the heart and affixed this to the card front.
Stamp is Altenew.

For the flowers, I dabbed them lightly with distress ink.

Positioned and affixed the banner and swallow in place.

Added additional flowers and little leaf set.
Gemstones to the middle to finish.

I love the flowers in this set (just to forewarn you!)
stock arriving very soon.
Wishing you all a fantastic weekend, I'm putting the finishing
touches to the little bear I'm making, he needs a face!
Take care friends.

  8. Hello Christine
    You made me smile after your warning about little flowers!
    Look forward to them being added everywhere lol!
    This is such a pretty card and the message is so lovely at a sad time!

  9. Morning Christine, Are these flowers going to replace the mini poinsettia dies in your 'Favourites' list !! A lovely CAS card, and can be used at any time, the sentiment can also be used for 'Friend' cards just to let them know that they are in your thoughts.
    Enjoy your day. I'm looking forward to seeing your little bear when it is finished. I'm thinking of trying to sew one.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
