Friday Die Day

Hello friends

Back into the routine with FDD's! 
This week I'm featuring Vintage Starburst Valance and Gatefold,
one of the Shadow Box Collection dies by Becca Feeken.

There are three dies in the set and the approximate measurements are:
Release Line: 5.50 x 2.80 in. 14.00 x 7.10 cm
Pattern: 5.45 x 2.75 in. 13.80 x 7.00 cm
Strip: 5.50 x 0.50 in. 14.00 x 1.30 cm

The die design lends itself to many choices, as a gatefold,
combined with a shadow box as above or my interpretation today...

To start, I die cut two of the main 'fan' designs from white cardstock.

Using Classic Circles, (patterned paper - Anna Griffin) a die cut circle.
I then attached one of the 'fan' die cuts over the top diagonally.

And then the second one...

Attached 3D Foam Squares to the reverse.

Affixed this to a square white card base.

Little flowers (Petite Double Bow and Flowers die set)
and leaves inked with distress inks.

I positioned the long leaves across the joining line of the die cuts.

And then added the little flowers - lots of them!

Pearls and tiny sentiment to finish the card.
And now quite a few photos - I was relishing the sun instead of the rain!

Take care friends.

That is clever When I first read that you were placing them diagonally I thought “why?” But it makes total sense!

Hello Christine
What a pretty card, it is an inspiration, I have never thought to put two fan shapes together and create a circle, AND what a great way to cover up the join, the flowers and leaves are a beautiful addition. Thank you, Love Brenda xx
