Friday Die Day

Hello friends
It's Friday Die Day and this week I'm featuring Floral Gazebo.
There's quite a few elements to this die set and the approximate sizes are as follows:
Bird:  ⅝ x ¾”
Flower 1: ⅝”
Flower 2: ¾ x 1¼”
Vine 1: ½ x 3” (2 pcs)
Vine 2: ¾ x 2⅞”
Gazebo: 3⅛ x 4⅜”
This is how it looks cut/embossed.
For my card design I've cut/embossed two of the gazebo pieces and cut
the second die cut as pictured.
I cut/embossed the vines and entwined them in the gazebo sections.
I then glued them into place, just down the outer edge to create a hinge door effect.
My card base is white card matted with floral paper - Arcadia Unity
cut/embossed with Pierced rectangles
From white card I cut/embossed Ivy and using the small flower from this die set
created shaped flowers using one of the Stylus tools for the Tool n' One.
The Stylus tools come in a pack of three and are available here.
Positioned the Gazebo on the card front slightly to the left.
I stamped a sentiment onto white card and placed this across the trellis area.
Added ivy and shaped flowers.
Close ups of the finished card.

Floral Gazebo is available on the website here,
along with Ivy and Pierced Rectangles.
Also I'm really liking using the Stylus tips for flower shaping, there is three in
the set and they come in a handy plastic pouch so you don't lose theory anyway!
This weekend I'm demoing in Nottingham - PDA Card and Craft.
Mum is coming along too :)  Hopefully some of you may live that way.
More venues have been added to the Ambassador Tour - please keep a check on
the tab on the website here
Over the next month or so I'm a little more local to home and then heading 
off to the Midlands again.
I'm looking into getting to the South West - have Grand Calibur will travel!
Take care friends and have a lovely weekend.

Lovely die Set Christine and I love how you have created the card.

Lesley Thomas said...

Neat little die set, very useful elements.

karenlotty said...

Oh how I wish I had your eye for colour palettes (don't think I've spelt that right!) I tend to make cards with plain backgrounds and use toppers Hence my reason for buying dies to get out of that habit! This is a beautiful die set. I can see summer outdoor weddings, anniversaryies and in the right colours - Christmas

Lovely, pretty card Christine - was this inspired by your clematis chair, I wonder !!
