Friday Die Day

Hello friends

Friday Die Day and this week I'm featuring
Decorative Fancy Diamond - it's very lovely!

The die set consists of three dies and the approximate measurements are as follows:

1: 1⅞ x 1⅞”
2: 3¼ x 3¼”
3: 4¼ x 5”

This is how they look cut/embossed.
It has a lovely Victorian regal look.
I've made a card this week.
I've used 6 x 6 Matting Basics A and B to create my card base -
red, ivory and patterned paper.
I then cut/embossed the largest diamond #3 (#1 is always the smallest die) and sliced in half!
I also did this with the die #2.
Inked the edges and rearranged differently for my card front.
Some little additions - Bitty Blossoms,
a small stamped banner sentiment and a key with twine.
Also attached the next sliced die cut and attached over the top.
All the other bits then added - the flowers, sentiment and key with twine.
Some close up pics.

Decorative Fancy Diamond is available on the website here,
arriving very soon!

Have a wonderful weekend - fingers crossed for more sunshine!
Take care friends.

Just Lovely! 😊

Jean Dyke said...

Hi Christine,

Loved this card, will have to add this die to my wish list I think. Did you make the sentiment for this card and the 'Memories ........' in the charity kit add on, or can they be bought ready made?

Take care

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Christine, This card is stunning, the patterned paper is gorgeous and the colourway is fabulous. This card would be lovely for a Wedding Card or Anniversary card also, with different sentiments.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Christine. It was great to see the garden looking so good, not sure the "cat" plants will take off though! The one of Dracy squeezed into the small pot in the corner is so funny : ) Your Clematis chair is a lovely idea, please can we have an update later in the year as I imagine it will look gorgeous. The card is so pretty, the flowers look so good against the wood effect : )
It sounds like you and Elliott had a great time at Ikea, will we be seeing you in the catalogue or on TV? Goodness me, Elliott is shooting up isn't he? What size are his feet now I wonder?
Todays card is gorgeous, I love it. The papers and flowers are a beautiful colour.
Have a good day. Take care xx

Hi Christine, I like this very pretty card. The new diamonds look so effective when used like this. I love the paper you have used, and the roses are stunning, just not sure about the key. Have a great weekend. X Ros
