Friday Die Day

Hello friends

This week's Friday Die Day is featuring Quatrefoil Panel.
A decorative panel die consisting of rectangular die and decorative insert.

This is how it looks cut/embossed.

I sat looking at the die cut for a while and realised it reminded me of 
a mosaic design, I selected some coloured card that felt meditterranean. 

Just using the inset die I cut/embossed with all three colours, being careful
to keep all those fall out pieces...the desk was a little messy at this point!

I adhered the white die cut to a white card front.

And then the reinserting of the fall out pieces began!
I have to say it was quicker than I thought and I found it therapeutic.
Yellow for the middle.

And then a combination of the dark and light blue for the remaining pieces.

All the pieces in their place!

The finished card, I chose to keep it very simple making the panel the 
main feature.
(The difference in taking photos inside and outside the cabin -
lighting is everything!)

Some close up pics.

Quatrefoil Panel is an Amazing Paper Grace die 
available to pre-order from retailers and arriving very soon.

Have a lovely weekend everyone, not long till Easter!
