Friday Die Day

Hello friends
This week's Friday Die Day is a revisit to one I featured last Spring.
it has been a busy week and I suddenly realised time had escaped me!
It features a very useful set of Die D-Lites - Ferns.
The approximate measurements are:
Fern 1: 1.35 x 1.50 in
Fern 2: 1.35 x 1.50 in
Fern 3: 1.00 x 1.75 in
Fern 4: 1.00 x 2.5 in
This is how they look cut and embossed.

I've selected a pre-made mini luggage tag that already has a metal eyelet in place.
Positioned one of the Fern dies.

To ensure the eyelet runs through the Platinum machine I've positioned
it just slightly off the edge of my cutting plate.

This has created a nice die cut aperture in the tag.
I've placed some pretty spotty paper behind.
My card base is Pierced Rectangles.
These are currently out of stock but arriving soon.
I added a silver Hello cut from mirror card and using Phrase Set 2.
Both Phrase Sets are great and available here.
The finished card, I think this qualifies as clean and simple :)
Some close up photos.
Interchanging the coloured paper could make the card seasonal.

Ferns is available to buy here, it's a nice set and
frankly I couldn't live without foliage...and butterflies and little flowers!
Take care friends - have a great weekend.
