Friday Die Day

Hello friends

It's Good Friday Die Day!
I've gone with a spring theme as opposed to Easter.
My featured die this week is Frayed Posies.
A two piece die set, the approximate measurements are:

Flower Small: 2.55 x 2.55 in
Flower Large: 3.00 x 2.85 in

This is how they look cut/embossed.

My card uses the largest Frayed Posie as an aperture.
Positioned centrally on card front.

I then used a piece of gift wrap - not any ol' gift wrap, this is gift wrap
that matches the book cover of Paperhearts and Summer Kisses.
Whoever has the lucky number from this month's charity
kit will receive this gift wrap.
Still not too late - a few kits left here.

Affixed into place inside the card and die cut a square to place over the top to
keep it all neat and tidy.

The finished card.

And another one using some pale green patterned paper in the aperture.

And here's the product image - shows the die being used with card and vellum.
Frayed Posies is available new and pre-loved on the website here.

Wishing you all a happy Easter,
I'm hoping to have a sort out in the cabin if the weather is kind.

Take care friends.
