Friday Die Day

Hello friends

Thank you for all your kind get well messages.
I'm rather disappointed to report that they could not remove my kidney stone,
I had visions of coming home with it in a little jar but was not to be.
My stone packed a little case and went travelling, it got bored of being in my kidney!
The surgeon could not locate it but feels it is probably still there.
(I'm very certain it is still there!)
So it is a bit of a waiting game which is not ideal but life
is never really straightforward is it, it likes to keep us on our toes!

Now crafty stuff...

This week's Friday Die Day is the stunning
This is a truly magnificent five piece die set, this is how it looks cut/embossed.

The approximate measurements are:

Oval Tag: 1.40 x 2.10 in. 3.6 x 5.3cm
Floral Oval: 2.90 x 3.90 in. 7.4 x 9.9cm
Oval Insert: 3.15 x 4.15 in. 8.0 x 10.5cm
Crest: 4.70 x 6.35 in. 11.9 x 16.1cm
Crest Frame: 4.9 x 6.65 in. 12.4 x 16.9cm

For my card design I cut the crest, floral insert and oval tag from ivory card 
and the oval insert and a further tag from gold mirror card.

My card base with Anna Griffin paper.

I used Cinch and Go Flowers Two for an embellishment, cut from pink card 
and inked lightly.  I layered the tag and stamped 'Thanks'.

The finished card - these dies are both beautiful and regal.
I also see a fairytale mirror frame with this design.

Victoriana Crest is one of Becca Feeken designs -
Amazing Paper Grace and is available on the website here
and Cinch and Go Flowers Two is available here.

It's a special day today - Elliott's 21st! 
We've got a few nice things planned over the weekend
including a barbecue so fingers crossed for nice weather and grateful to 
my family for stepping in and helping out while I've been out of action.

Take care friends, have a lovely weekend.
