Friday Die Day

Hello friends
It's Friday Die Day and this week I'm featuring Romantic Vines
This is one of the Spellbinders Victorian Garden die sets
and the approximate measurements are:

 Vine 1: 1 x 2”
Vine 2: 1⅝ x 2¾”
Vine 3: 2½ x 2½”
Vine 4: 2½ x 4”
 
This is how they look cut/embossed.
I've chosen to make 2 mini cards this week.
Kraft card base with matted green cardstock using 6 x 6 Matting Basics A.
Onto a slightly smaller square (6 x 6 Matting Basics B) I stamped a sentiment
across the bottom (Lawn Fawn - Scripty Sayings)
and positioned one of the vine die templates.
I cut to create an aperture and placed 3D Foam Squares on the reverse.
The card is finished with a simple single flower (Marisa's Bouquet) and a pearl.
A close up pic.
For my second mini card, again a stamped sentiment to the bottom.
The largest vine adhered and again, a single flower added.
Easy to make and brilliant for perhaps a batch of invitations, thank you cards.
Romantic Vines is available to pre-order here and arriving soon!
 
Thank you for all the lovely comments yesterday,
no real progress as yet with Elliott and his transfer to an open sided MRI aside from
we are back at the Royal Marsden on 1 June for a CT scan, hoping we hear more then.
 
Have a great weekend everyone, I am hoping to craft and garden -
not at the same time!
 
Take care friends.
