Friday Die Day

Hello friends

Another favourite FDD revisited today featuring a window die -
this is Window Two but works perfectly with other window dies including
Window One and Window Four.
The size of the die is 2½ x 3⅝” and this is how it looks cut/embossed.
Tags are definitely back! 
I've covered one of the Ranger Manila Tags (currently on sale on the website here)
with pretty paper and inked the edges.
On the reverse side of the window I've placed a further shaped piece of patterned paper.
The view from the front.
Added a little stamped tag with twine.  Love how the window opens.
Tiny champagne pearls make great window knobs!
Attached to the tag with a little lace threaded through.
some tiny flowers and leaves and finished.

The shop re-opens tomorrow after its little summer break.
Have a wonderful weekend, hoping for August weather please not this rainy stuff!

Take care friends.

Hi Christine. It's good to see some tags back again : ) This one is beautiful, the window die is really handy and it look great used here.
I hope you have a quieter weekend than the last couple of weeks have been. Take care.

Lovely tag Christine, I have this die and it's very versatile, you can put a little photo behind it, a landscape or portrait works well too to personalise a card. Chris xx

Great tag Christine - very effective. I have a window die, just not that fancy one, but I think I could do something similar, it's a question of finding the right paper, I think, more than anything.

Morning Christine, I love this !! a brilliant idea with the window and the flowery paper behind, and the finished tag is beautiful.
I, too, hope we have some sunshine, I miss the sun !!
Enjoy your weekend.

Good morning Christine
Lovely tag - I like the idea of putting a patterned paper behind the window and the fact that it opens is great too.
Yes I would like to see some sunshine this weekend, my garden is need of some attention but the weather has been very damp here so I can't get the grass cut. Never mind will do some crafting instead.
Enjoy your day

Your tags always look so lovely. The pretty paper behind the window gives the die-cut extra oomph! Great for using up 'leftovers'. I have one of the other window dies perhaps your idea will work with that.

Hi Christine,

Love this tag, have got a window die and this is just one more way to use it. Thank you for inspiring us.
Have a great week, all of you - you, your sons, cats and dogs.
How are the kittens faring?
