Friday Die Day

Hello friends

I promise you it is Thursday!
With going away I must have got confused with dates so here's Friday Die Day...
a little earlier than normal!!

This week's Friday Die Day is featuring Labels Forty Eight Decorative Accents.

The approximate measurements are:
1: 1⅝ x 1⅛” 2: 2⅜ x 2¼” 3: 3⅞ x 3⅝”

This is how it looks cut/embossed.

I've chosen to make a card, cut the largest die from foil card - it embosses
beautifully.  I also used Labels Forty Eight to cut a matching smaller shape.
The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye - Indie Chic.

My card base and matting is created with 6 x 6 Matting Basics.
Stamped thank you in the bottom corner.

Attached Labels Forty Eight Decorative Accents.

Simply added a butterfly charm to the middle to finish.

Some close up pics.

Such a pretty die set.

Take care friends - wishing you all a great weekend.

  13. Hello Christine
    I must admitt to being a little startled when I saw your blog post title this morning but then I read on. This is a very elegant die and looks lovely as a matt for stamping. I have been looking at the pre-orders Elliott has posted this week and I love some of the new die sets especially the new label shapes. I did promise myself not to buying any new craft stuff in January or Febuary but I am very tempted.
    Take card

  15. Gorgeous card and gorgeous dies. Karen xxx

  16. Hi, Christine,
    You really didn't startle me too much posting this a day early as I'm always forgetting what day it is lol. What a super die, I have to hang my head in shame and admit I've not seen this one before. It's well worth seeing it a day early :). You made a couple of super cards with it as well, love the silver one.

  22. The Secret Survey

    Dating a wealthy person is the dream of many people, especially women today. There are so many luxuries that come with all that money and many would give anything just to be able to date a millionaire. Considering that there are even millionaire dating sites today that make it even easier to find a millionaire match, you still want to weigh in everything that comes with dating one. Most people look at the good side of it and remain blind to the ugly side of it. Before even getting into the dating, look at both sides and then get into it more aware and ready for the possible outcomes.
