Friday Die Day

Hello friends

I'm scheduling my Friday Die Day post so fingers crossed you are
reading it at the right time!
This week I'm featuring Nordic Floral.
This is a 5 piece die set and the approximate measurements are:

Tall Flower: 1.10 x 3.00 in. 2.80 x 7.60 cm
Bird: 1.40 x 1.60 in. 3.60 x 4.10 cm
Med Flower: 1.10 x 1.60 in. 2.80 x 4.10 cm
Small Flowers (each): 1.00 x 1.50 in. 2.50 x 3.80 cm
1.00 x 1.50 in. 2.50 x 3.80 cm

To start, I've affixed a silver foil card 6 x 6 mat onto a white card base.

I then die cut multiple tall flowers from white cardstock.

Onto a white card mat I began to adhere them to create a background.

Trim some so that they are staggered and fit.
Tip: once they are arranged and glued down run this through your die
cutting machine with the embossing sandwich - this flattens and seals the design. 

Next, use one of the smaller flowers to cut an aperture into a square die cut.

Mount onto a black card mat square and stamp a sentiment.

Mount this onto a silver foil card mat square and, using the same
flower die gain, die cut from black cardstock.

Insert the die cut black flower into the aperture and colour the fall out petal pieces,
paper piece back into the design.

Affix to the centre of your card with background design (flattened if desired!)

This design only uses two dies from the Nordic Floral set 
so lots more potential for this die set.
Nordic Floral dies are in stock on the website here
and please feel free to check out the other Folk Art designs 
all in stock here.

Take care friends, wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Hi Christine
Firstly, Congratulations on two great shows yesterday, and loved all your samples and demonstrations.
Love the card today too and a great tip about running afixed die cuts through the machine again, I haven't heard that before, but makes great sense.
Hope today goes well too, I'm at work today but will watch on catch up TV.

Good morning Christine enjoyed your show at 6 last night. Margaret was thinking the same as me that the big flower looked like crewel work. Certainly an interesting collection of dies. Enjoy today and safe journey home xx

Hi Christine. Wasn't sure about this set of dies at first but you've brought them to life. Your samples on Hochanda were gorgeous proving that the more simple the cards, the more striking they are. Thank you for your inspiration. Xx
