Darling Daisies Frame!

Hello friends

How about something bright and cheerful today.
Forget about those grey rain clouds and feast your eyes on...

This is a project I created for The Craft Channel and it was to demonstrate
how many layers of card the Platinum machine can cut through using
Contour Steel Rule Dies -
I actually used six layers of 250gsm cardstock!

I used the Contour Steel Rule Die - Darling Daises,
the photo doesn't truly show the wonderful card thickness - it looks just
like a photo mount.   Also, excuse that shadow on the glass, really hard
taking photos of reflective items.

Behind the dots and daisies I placed
pretty patterned paper - Lawn Fawn - Let's Polka, Mon Amie.
Such a useful paper pad - I love the combo of tiny dots, stripes, hearts and
all in pretty pastel colours.

I also used these papers in the heart card below.
It appears that when a paper pad sits on my desk it gets used for multiple projects!

Just to confirm Contour Steel Rule Dies also work in other
die cutting machines - as long as they are machines that take
the thicker format dies.
Take care friends.

  8. Hello Christine
    Two great projects today, especially the card, very clean and crisp. The papers are delightful. Definitely something else to add to my wish list.

  9. Hi Christine, Two great projects, loving the papers, very fresh-looking and uplifting colours (desperately needed here, today it has never stopped raining, horrid), I especially love the card, and the person who receives this card will be uplifted too.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  10. Hi Christina,
    The lights are on, the heating is on, the curtains are closed and the wind is gusting to almost gale force, hurling the rain against the windows...ah, another lovely Saturday evening :). I love both of these projects, especially the framed flowers, they are great! My sister keeps telling me I should stop making cards and maybe try something 'useful'...when did cards stop being useful I asked myself. Still, she mentioned home d├ęcor, so this would be a great way to start...and for her cheek she will get the fruits of my labour for her birthday next year lol. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, everyone.
