Friday Die Day

Hello friends

It's Friday Die Day and this week I'm featuring Decorative Holly Frame.
This is three piece die set and the approximate measurements are:

Accent: 3 x 1¾”
Centre: 4⅛ x 3”
Frame: 5¾ x 5¾”

This is what it looks like cut/embossed...
and with light bouncing off the mirror card!
I really like the label shape with the pierced edging.
I printed my sentiment onto white card - the font is French Script.
Positioned the centre label die, cut/embossed.

I wanted to add a little decoration, nothing too much to detract from the 
ornate frame die.
I used the tiny poinsettia flowers from 5 x 7 Decorative Holly Frame die set -
these are going to be a definite go-to for me - they are adorable!

I matted the frame onto red cardstock cut with 6 x 6 Matting Basics
and then onto a white card front.
I now permanently have all my Matting Basics dies on my craft desk,
I seriously struggle with trimmers!
The finished card - how easy, the ornate die does all the work.

Decorative Holly Frame is available here.
Matting Basics dies including the 6 x 6 ones that I used are available here.
And those tiny poinsettia flowers come from this die set here.

I'm feeling a little overwhelmed by everyone's good wishes
for the shows starting on Monday -
thank you everyone - you are all fab!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and take care friends.

  6. Hello Christine
    I made the mistake of pre ordering the 5x7 Frame in July !!!!!!!! and still waiting for it to be in stock.
    Now I have seen your take on it, especially the Poinsettias, I can't wait much longer!
    Looking forward to my tv being able to watch you Christine will be such a treat after all this time!
    Take care
    Love Marg

  8. Morning Christine, I love everything about this card, the die-cuts are fabulous and the font on the sentiment is very pretty, I wish that I could print onto card with my printer. Everything looks gorgeous on this card.

  11. I love it I use the matting basics a lot! When using a trimmer/guillotine you can guarantee at least one if my sides ends up skew-whiff

  12. Beautiful card! Love seeing how you did it and using the matting basics! Thanks for showing the die up close!! NOW I am going to have to get one myself!!!! :)

  13. Gorgeous card Christine. The tiny poinsettia is so cute. My big poinsettia is one of my favourite die sets and I think this one would be a fantastic addition.
