Friday Die Day - Part One!

Hello friends

It's Friday Die Day - wow they come around so quickly!
This week I am featuring Hearts and Flutter -
this is a two piece die set and the approximate measurements are:

Butterfly: 1⅛ x 1¼“
Heart: 2⅞ x 2⅜“

This is how they look cut/embossed - so pretty,
that butterfly is calling to me...!
I've chosen to use the 'Flutter' die this week - look out for FDD - Part Two
featuring the 'Heart'!
 
I've teamed the butterfly with Labels Three.
Cut/embossed three sets.
I then selected three pastel pieces of patterned paper from my scrap box.
Placed a piece behind each Labels die cut.
Affixed to my card front with 3D Foam Squares, added a stamped sentiment in the corner.
I then reinserted the butterflies, just applying adhesive to the body part so
the wings could fly!
A very clean and simple card today but it truly shows off the die cuts.
Heart and Flutter is available on the website here.
 
I've got a busy kit-making weekend ahead.  I'm off to Birmingham next weekend
for the big craft trade show "Stitches" at the NEC.
I'm going to be demonstrating and meeting up with Stacey Caron and Kim Hupke
from Spellbinders so lots of fun too.
 
Have a great weekend everyone, keep nice and warm.
Take care friends.

Good morning Christine
Ohh this is a lovely die set, one for the wish list I think. I like the idea of using up some scraps too.
Have a good day

Hi Christine. What a pretty CAS card. I must be honest and say that the die didn't call to me but seeing it cut and used has opened my eyes : ) I hope the weekend goes well and you have a great time at the show. Take care.

Fantastic! I love this simple look. A great way to use up those little bits of pretty paper. Did you write the sentiment (if so I am so jealous of your handwriting) or is it a stamp.

Hi Christine, what a lovely simple and elegant card, I do love your sentiment too, such a nice font. do you use stamps, (if so who makes them) or do you have beautiful writing?
Have a lovely weekend.

What a lovely card. I would never have thought of combining the dies in this way, but that is why I look to you.
Thanks
