Edwardian Door

Hello friends
Over on the Spellbinders website in the Featured Tutorials section
I have created three projects using Edwardian Door.

This is the 'Advanced' project and looks nothing like a door!
I used the middle section to look like a faux chest of drawers.
The 'drawers' are actually boxes - Square Petal Top Box.

I added my favourite Sprigs, Blooms Four and Elegant Ovals.
That's the fun of using Spellbinders dies, they can often be turned into something different.

I will soon be sharing the other projects using this lovely die,
I've got a real penchant for doors and windows!

Hope you are all having a good week, mine is speeding by!

Take care friends.

Hi Christine, I love how you have used this beautiful die (another wish list addition!)...probably my mind playing tricks but as soon as I saw it I thought 'tardis'...you know, in blue with a bit of tweaking :) Hugs Carole Z X

Hi Christine, an interesting die, I look forward to seeing what else you do with it, and you have used my favourite dies of the moment, sprigs and blooms four. These lovely flowers are appearing on everything I make. They look great when made up in many layers an curled.

Morning Christine,
A very clever use of the die, would never have guessed it started as a door. Look forward to seeing the rest of the projects.

Hi Christine

Loving how you use your dies { i dont seem to be able to think outside of the die and what other uses it may have } and your boxes are so very pretty .

Looking forward to FDD.

Morning Christine
What a fab way to use this die....you always 'think outside the box' (pardon the pun!) when using the dies, wish I could do the same. It certainly gives us all plenty of help though!
I love the box which is decorated in your own lovely style.
Have a good job in London.

Hello Christine
Love it you have such a way with Dies, you completely change them out of recognition..... unless you said I wouldn't have guessed the Die.
Lovely!
Have a good day today... finally its trying to rain in Bristol, non for weeks,the grass is dead, and the trees drooping.
Not too much though!lol
Take care
Love Marg

Great idea for the door Christine, I hadn't seen that die before. There seem to be so many these days, it's hard to keep up with them.

When is a door not a door when it's drawers. Brilliant Christine. Just goes to show with a little imagination how versatile dies can be.
Enjoy your day

Brilliant! When is a door not a door? When it's a chest of drawers of course. A lovely die for many occasions. Your featured projects are excellent and so do-able.
