Friday Die Day

Hello friends
By the magic of Blogger scheduling here is FDD!
Today featuring Blooms Four.
There are three die templates to this Die D-Lites set and this is how they look cut/embossed.
I've chosen to make a card.
To the bottom long edge I'm using A2 Bracket Borders One.
Stamped a sentiment and used A2 Matting Basics A to create a label.
Now rummage down your scrap box for lots of pretty coloured card.
Cut/emboss lots of Blooms Four - I've used the smallest and medium size dies.
Then start to adhere around your sentiment label, just stick the middle of the flowers down so
you can lift the petals.
Keep going until you feel there is enough...
and then add one more!
It is a simple but effective design and a great way to use up scraps of coloured card -
also looks superb in white with pearls/gems to the middle of each bloom.
Today is our last full day in Devon - we have had a great time and would
like to stay longer, equally though it will be nice to get home to Bella!

Some more holiday pics tomorrow.
Have a brilliant weekend - weather looks like it is going to last!
Take care friends.

Hi Christine. I love the CAS card : ) The Blooms Four make lovely flowers and look so pretty, and you get to use up scraps when making them which is always good. The week seems to have flown by doesn't it! Enjoy yourselves in the sun : ) Take care.

Great FDD. These blooms 4 look brilliant and I think they need to be added to my collection.
Enjoy your last day of your holiday. I bet Bella will be pleased to see you all.

Lovely idea & card. The week has gone quickly for me so I'll bet it has for you. I'm doing a sponsored night walk for the local hospice tonight so fingers crossed for fine weather.

Morning Christine, Make the most of your last day, and I'm sure you will have a 'little doggie' at home eagerly waiting your return, you will definitely get an excited 'welcome back' from Bella.
The Blooms Four looks really nice, I love all the flower dies with long petals, I think that is why my favourite is the poinsettia haha, because you can leave them long, or you can curl them up and make a totally different looking flower.
Enjoy your last day.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Good morning Christine, Mitchell & Elliott,
I love FDD!!!!
Sometimes the simplest cards are the most stunning, I love what you have done with those dies today, that card stock is so pretty!
I hope you have the best last day, I would love for you to capture Bella's reaction to seeing you on video!
Don't forget to stock up on Clotted Cream before you leave!
Crafty hugs to all,
Sandra xx

Morning Christine
Lovely CAS card today, so clean and simple! I love how you've used the blooms. Just wondering, do you use the bracket border on the back and the front of the card or just the front?
Wishing you a lovely last day in Devon and a safe journey home tomorrow. We leave Paris this afternoon, where we've had a lovely four days 😊

Morning Christine,
Great card, and a good way to use the scraps, I have been doing this for sometime but with different flower dies, will try it with just one die shape as your looks stunning.
Make the most of your last day, so pleased that the weather has been kind to you.

Maggie said...

Hello Christine. This is a great card and will be so useful. I have bracket dies, I have card, sentiment stamps and not this flower die, but the asters would also work. Going to give it a go right away. Have a lovely day in the sunshine by the sea. xxMargaretxx

Cornish Emma said...

Good Morning Christine, beautiful card and i think i have to get these flowers as well now! lol I have more flower dies than anything else. Enjoy your last day, im sure Bella will be just as happy to see you lot again also. Hugs Emma x

Pat S Witney said...

Thanks for showing what the FDD looks like made up. I have these dies but have not used them yet. Glad you had a great time in Devon. They also offered my son and his wife a weekend away when he was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He said he wouldn't go as he didn't want to leave his children. So they arranged for all of them to have a weekend at a Center Parc. They had a wonderful weekend away.
