Friday Die Day!

Hello friends
Amazing response yesterday, lots of ideas to consider - thank you so much.
It's Die Day again and it feels different this week because my London working days have changed,
I keep annoying the boys and asking what day it is!
This week I'm featuring Floral Tags

You receive 9 die templates with this set, 3 are tags,
2 flowers and 4 decorative leaves (always need foliage!)
 Here they are cut/embossed and stencilled.
Immediately I've picked out my favourites...
The beauty of these dies is the little bits that you can lift - I use a pokey tool or a cocktail stick.
I've gone with a tag...no surprises there! 
Created my music background with tissue tape. I then decided to see if I could incorporate 
every die cut on the tag and nearly got there...
The upright floral tags I cut in half and mixed them up, I love the kraft tag with a little bit of stamping.
 
All I had left was the pink flower and one leaf!
Thinking about it, you could just place this on an envelope or gift parcel for a nice touch.
Remember to lift up those petals for extra dimension and I like the way you can sort of interlock them.
Have a great Friday friends.
Take care.

You have really set me off with the tags Christine. I am making them all the time now. Think they have taken over from the ATC!! I love your tags - particularly this purple and turq. one. I am so glad you have a Friday Die Day 'cos I'm a devil for collecting these dies then am unsure how to use them. Your tag is so nice and has given me more ideas LOL!!!

Hi Christine, what a wonderful set of dies, I have not seen this one yet but it looks like a must-have to me. The flower in your final pic is fabulous and it looks so dimensional even without lifting the petals, I really love this set and thank you for another wonderful die-day. Crafty hugs, Anne xx

You are so clever your creations are always very different, still wonder how you do it.
