Friday Die Day

Hello friends
 
This week's Friday Die Day features Fancy Edged Circles,
one of the new Classics Collection die sets from Spellbinders.
Seven dies in the set and you will see that there is a combination of
scalloped and pierced edging to four of the dies
and dot and dash edging to the remaining - very attractive.

The approximate measurements are:
 
First: 3.70 x 3.70 in. 9.40 x 9.40 cm
Second: 3.10 x 3.10 in. 7.90 x 7.90 cm
Third: 2.80 x 2.80 in. 7.10 x 7.10 cm
Fourth: 2.20 x. 2.20 in. 5.60 x 5.60 cm
Fifth: 1.90 x 1.90 in. 4.90 x 4.90 cm
Sixth: 1.30 x 1.30 in 3.30 x 3.30 cm
Seventh: 0.90 x 0.90 in. 2.30 x 2.30 cm
 
This is how they look cut/embossed.
 
 
I've chosen a 6 x 6 card with a white mat stamped with a sentiment.


I've then layered up three of the die cuts, size order using a combination of designs.

 
I then used another two die cuts positioned and affixed to the edge of the main circles.


Now to the floral bit - this is Cinch and Go Flowers III
(due back in stock soon and available to order).
I've used distress inks to colour and added stamens to the middle.
I had to sneak in some mirror card with the foliage! 


The finished card - I've added a couple of little flower buds created with the
smallest die in the Cinch and Go Flower III set.



I'm loving the clean crispness of the circles with that fine pierced and scallop edging.
