Friday Die Day

Hello friends

Not long now!
This time next week we will still be eating turkey I'm sure!
Today's Friday Die Day is Lilly Pearl Fold/Flower Border.
A clever die set that works so well as flowers and an effective scallop border.
Three dies in the set and the approximate measurements are:

Small Flower/Border: 6.00 x 0.75 in. 15.2 x 1.9 cm
Medium Flower/Border: 6.00 x 0.90 in. 15.20 x 2.30 cm
Large Flower/Border: 6.30 x 1.20 in. 16.00 x 3.00 cm

This is how they look cut/embossed.

You can see that once cut/embossed you have fold lines, this creates the curl -
very simple to do.

Once complete you can place a button, brad or pearl to the middle.
My brads come from 99p Store!

The die set works beautifully as a border.  I've cut it twice, once from white card
and then with silver mirror card to create a shadow.

I then cut a piece of patterned paper - Kaisercraft - Black and White Timeless.
I placed the border section to the bottom.

Attached silver ribbon over the top and mounted onto a card front.

Positioned the flower with leaves added from Wreath Elements.

Finishing touch was a typed and die cut sentiment - Happy New Year,
I'm thinking ahead...!
The font used is French Script.

The edging detail on each petal is so pretty, this is what really appealed to me
with this die set.

 Lilly Pearl Fold/Flower Border is available on the website here.
Wreath Elements for those very useful leaves is available here.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, I'm sure there will be a lot of
shopping, wrapping and cooking going on!

Take care friends.
