Good Friday Die Day!

Hello friends

A Good Friday Die Day this week!

I'm featuring Labels 50 Decorative Elements.
The die set consists of four dies, I've nested them for the photo and
the approximate measurements are:

1: 1.15 x 1.15 in
2: 2.25 x 2.25 in
3: 3.50 x 3.50 in
4: 4.15 x 4.15 in

This is how they look cut/embossed.
#1 has particularly lovely embossed detail.

I really like the faux stitch detail around the largest die.
I've cut this twice, from white card and teal colour.
Cut the teal colour die cut in half.

Place the two teal sections behind the white die cut to 
create a shadow top and bottom.

I've nested this onto two square mats of card created with 
6 x 6 Matting Basics A and B.

Attached twine, tied bow and placed a further die cut from this set #3
over the top with 3D foam squares.

The finishing touches - stamped tag, two tiny flowers with enamel dots to the centres.

Wishing you all a lovely Easter.
May it bring you what you wish...including a little bit of chocolate!

Take care friends.

  10. Morning Christine, I love this card, it is gorgeous. The dies are really beautiful.
    I could have done with one of those paper pads that Elliott has on his Blog, yesterday, the parquet flooring paper, I was making a card for my Great Granddaughter's 1st Birthday, and I did a Noah's Ark with all the animals in the Ark, it would have been ideal for the boat haha.
    Enjoy your Easter.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
