Friday Die Day

Hello friends

I'm happy to say for this week's Friday Die Day I've made a
card that I really really like! That may sound a little odd but because
I make so many projects they tend to go on a 'like scale' of 1-10.
This week I can honestly say it's a project and die set that's 10/10.

The die set is Ornamental Accents.

It consists of two dies and their approximate measurements are:

Square: 2.00 x 2.00 in
Bar: 3.05 x 1.25 in

This is how they look cut/embossed.

I created a white square card base with two white mats using 6 x 6 Matting Basics.

I then positioned four of the 'square' die cuts and affixed with
foam pads to the centres.

Assembled my favourite flowers of the moment...
mini poinsettias with little leaves.  Pearls to the centres.

Popped those onto each square and a typed and die cut sentiment across the middle.

I think they look like mini doilies and positioned diamond wise is also lovely.

Ornamental Accents is available to pre-order.
Be may see this die quite often :)

Take care friends - have a brilliant weekend.
