Friday Die Day

Hello friends
 
For Friday Die Day this week I'm featuring one of the dies
that is being launched right now at Creativation (formerly CHA) in the States.
This is Corner Floral designed by Sharyn Sowell for Spellbinders.
 
http://hopeandchances.co.uk/shop/die-d-lites/flower-garden-collection-corner-floral-pre-order-arriving-march-2018/
 
Floral Corner is a set of six dies, the main flower, two leaf accents and
three outline dies.
 
The approximate measurements are:
 
Leaves: 0.70 x 1.20 in. 1.80 x 3.00 cm
Flower: 2.30 x 1.75 in. 5.80 x 4.40 cm
 
For my card design I've chosen to use the main flower and leaf accents
without the outline dies, positioned and held in place with
removable tape, this will just cut the detail into my card front..
 

Once cut, I stamped a sentiment.

 
Prepared my card base simply with a square of patterned paper.

 
Using Crafty Foam Tape I affixed my card front,
it definitely looks more effective to have the dimension.

 
The finished card with the addition of gemstones.
Very clean and simple!



I also used the same die to cut into the envelope flap and place matching
patterned paper behind and left it a little bigger to create a border around the flap.


Floral Corner is available to pre-order on the website here.
The dies will hit our shores in March, I'll keep you updated regarding
exact pre-orders delivery dates as soon as I receive them.
 
Here's a list of all items used this Friday Die Day with clickable links.
 
6 x 6 Matting Basics
 
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, I shall be in my cabin making
more samples for the trade show next month, I'm speed crafting
with the help of watching various box sets of DVDs.
Will you be crafting?
 
Take care friends.
