Friday Die Day

Hello friends

It's Friday Die Day and this week I've featuring the rather lovely
Luscious Labels One
Photo colouring is a little askew this week, I was creating FDD between
moving out of the shop into the cabin and photos were taken in all different places
and lighting wasn't great!

This is how this die set looks cut/embossed.
Four very pretty die cuts all based on the classic Labels One shape.
I chose to cut/emboss the largest one in white and also some Layered Poinsettias.
Inked through the die and shaped the petals.
The Poinsettia constructed, two little fern-like leaves from Foliage and also a jingle bell
attached to some silver ribbon.
Jingle Bells are available in the shop here (definitely getting festive!)
Attached the die cut to my card base with Crafty Foam Tape.
Attached all the other elements and a fresh looking Christmas card.
It is such a pretty label shape and you can also combine Labels One
to create further layers.
I'm loving the bell - it jingles each time the card is opened!

I'm heading off to Coventry tomorrow in readiness for CHA UK Retailer Training Day
on Sunday - my first event as a Spellbinders Ambassador.
I've been organising all the kits and I will be sharing photos of those soon,
David Ruprecht, VP of Sales at Spellbinders is flying over (he's my boss!)
it promises to be a great day!

Take care friends - have a wonderful weekend.

Good morning Christine
What a pretty die, one I have not seen before. A definite edition to my wish list.
I like the idea of putting a little bell on a card, it puts a whole new spin on adding texture.
Again the lovely poinsettia die adds that special little touch to a Christmas card.
I hope you have a great time in Coventry. I am sure your new boss will be extremely pleased with his new employee.
Take care

Mrs B said...

Hi Christine. What a gorgeous card. I love adding bells to my Christmas cards too. The Luscious Labels One are so pretty, I must add these to the wish list as they will go with my Labels One, a much used set of dies, a bit like my Poinsettia dies, I would use them on every card I make given the chance : )
I hope you have a good weekend in Coventry, and the training and meeting the boss goes well.
Looking forward to seeing pics of your kits : ) Take care.
