Friday Die Day

Hello friends
Today I'm featuring one of the new Amazing Paper Grace dies
designed by Becca Feeken.
This collection of dies is available to pre-order here in the UK.
This is Swirl Stripe Panel.
There is an outer rectangular die and an insert,
so they can be combined or used separately.
And this is how it looks cut/embossed.
I've prepared my card base using 6 x 6 Matting Basics,
white card, silver and then white again.

I then discovered some pretty vellum in my scrap box and printed some
invitation wording.

Cut/embossed two of the Swirl Stripe Panels to create 'doors' for my card front.
Secured these at the sides with adhesive.

Small addition of silver leaves and red flowers to finish.

Some close up pics.

A simple design effective for all sorts of cards.

Have a great weekend, as this post goes live I will be
checking everything is packed in my car ready to drive off to
Birmingham for the next few days.
Take care friends.
