Friday Die Day

Hello friends

Friday Die Day!
This week I am using Contemporary Circles, this is a two piece die set
and measures approximately:

Inset: 3¾ x 5”
Border: 4¼ x 5”

This set is a Spellbinders® Shapeabilities® Decorative Card Front die,
this means half of your card creating is done for you!

This is how it looks cut/embossed.
Rainbow time!
Onto a piece of white card I've attached strips of coloured card,
raided my scrap box again.  Fix these down firmly.
I then used the border die to cut the rectangle.
Pretty colours!
I attached the rainbow rectangle to a white card front.
Attached 3D Foam Squares to the reverse of the Contemporary Circles card front 
and fixed this down onto the rainbow base.
A strip of white card and then a stamped sentiment tag.
Back to Basics Tags...of course!
With the offcuts of my rainbow card I cut/embossed Blooms Four.
Tip: make sure every piece of your rainbow card is fixed to a backing card
otherwise you end up with tiny bits of petal everywhere...just sayin'!
The flower in place with Sprigs added.
A close up photo. 
The card front dies really make things speedy and they look so effective.
Contemporary Circles is available on the website here.
Other card front dies on the website include Diagonal Chevron, Flurries and Glass Effects.

Take care friends - I'm back tomorrow.
Have a wonderful weekend.

What a stunning card. I love the idea of making a rainbow background using offcuts - and the flowers die cut from the leftovers look fantastic!

Hi All
Thank you lovely card, take care Kitty.

Good morning Christine,
What an amazingly different idea to bring colour to your backgrounds and to use this multicoloured card to die cut flowers is just 'blooming genius ' Christine, I love the whole idea!
Thank you for another brilliant FDD!
Hugs

Christine, what a cleaver way to use the offcuts which build up into a stash and then reluctantly go into the recycling bin. A definate one to try, thank you Ann

Hi Christine. I am playing catch up, again!) What a cute photo of Bella yesterday, we told you she had missed you! : ) Congratulations to Marg, you lucky lady. Enjoy the Grand dies : )
I love todays card, the rainbow effect background and flowers is simply gorgeous. Love the tip, is that one you got from experience I wonder? (Because it's just the sort of thing that I would do the first time : ))
I hope you have a lovely weekend. Take care.

Hi Christine,
A great way to use scraps, I have a huge box of scraps but forget to look through it when making something new. Your card is very pretty.
