Friday Die Day

Hello friends

I missed a post yesterday. I forgot to click the schedule button!
Yesterday's post will catch up over the weekend, 
about the same time as my brain! 

I haven't forgotten today's post - Friday Die Day and this week I'm featuring
It creates an A2 size card (US sizing) 
and the die measurements are:

1st Layer: 4.50 x 5.50 in 10.80 x 14.00 cm
2nd Layer: 4.15 x 5.50 in 10.50 x 13.70 cm
This is how it looks cut/embossed.
I've used both dies and white card to create the solid and patterned die cuts.

I then grabbed some scrap pink card and die cut various sections of the insert die
to obtain the fallout pieces.

I then tipped the edges with distress ink.

Let the paper piecing begin! 
Instead of reinserting them completely I just put the adhesive to the
centre petal so I could lift up the outer edge.

I didn't complete the whole card, just picked out random flowers I liked.

Mounted onto a silver foil card and grey mats.

I then selected grey ribbon, printed sentiment and created
a flower using Cinch and Go Flowers II.

The finished card, I've mounted it onto a white card base with Crafty Foam Tape
and added the sentiment to the bottom.
Pearls added to the flower centres and tiny sprigs behind the larger flower 
to bring in a touch of green.

 Oh yes, I also added another strip of ribbon over the grey,
you can never have enough pink!

Items used today:

You may wish to take a look at the full Special Moments Collection,
due in stock end of July, although it is possible it could be earlier.
All the details are here.

Take care friends and have a lovely weekend.
