Friday Die Day

Hello friends
On this Friday Die Day I bring you Nature's Window.
This is one of the In'spire Line dies - a nice selection can be found here.
It is one die template and this is how it looks cut/embossed.
I chose to cut one from brown and one from green card.
My card base is kraft card, a panel of white, both with rounded corners to the bottom.
Simply overlaid one die cut over the other and moved it down very slightly.
A stamped sentiment and twine.
A side view so you can see the opening window - nice idea to place something behind this.
I really like the unusual simplicity of this die.
Have a great weekend, let's wish for sunshine!
Take care friends.

Hi Christine, I immediately thought the same as Maggie, what an unusual die! I've never seen it before & love the card you've made; am thinking it would be good on a scrapbook page too, hugs Carole Z xx

Hello Christine
Strange how I look at Dies but don't really see them until they are demonstrated!
This is one of those... the butterflies were another and Blossom 3, now I use them all the time, thanks for demoing Christine!
Take Care
Love Marg

Good morning Christine
Lovely CAS card and a very unusual die.
Off to clean my house today - a dirty job but someone has to do it and that someone is me unfortunately.
Enjoy your day

Hi Christine. It certainly is an unusual die, but I love it now you have shown the gorgeous card. Like Marg I struggle until I see dies demoed so thank you for this one : ) I hope you have a good weekend. The weather is meant to be a bit drier here in Oxon for the next few days, fingers crossed, hope it is for you too. Take care.

Morning Christine,
Unusual die, have not seen it before. I love what you have done with it, like the way you have shadowed it.
And yes some sunshine would be nice.

Maggie said...

Hello Christine. You clever lady. You take a die that frankly I would not have a clue what to do with - a leaf with a window in it! and show us how novel it can look on a card. This is so effective and I have a 'need' feeling coming on. Have a lovely sunny day. xxMargaretxx

Sandra said...

Good morning Christine,
What an unusual die! A new one to me, never seen it before. You have as always made it look fab, you just seem to have a magic touch that makes otherwise fairly boring dies desirable! You can just picture yourself looking out of that window, waiting for someone to walk up the path!
Fingers crossed for sunshine,
Crafty hugs

Morning Christine,
Like the other ladies have already said.....what an unusual die! You have made a super card with it, certainly not something I would have thought of!
Have a good day in London.

Patricia Howarth said...

Evening Christine, A beautiful card, and the die is an interesting one, although I would have thought the window should have opened on the opposite side !!
I'm off to the Great British Craft Festival in Bolton tomorrow, haven't been there before, I'm looking forward to it.
Have a lovely weekend.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Elaine said...
