Friday Die Day

Hello friends

It's Friday and this week I'm featuring Delicate Tendril Border,
one of the Vintage Treasures Collection dies.

This is a 4 piece die set and like quite a few in this collection,
you have the option of using it as an inset or adding the rim dies to create
a full die cut.

Outer Rim: 5.00 x 2.35 in. 12.70 x 6.00 cm
Pattern: 4.90 x 2.05 in. 12.50 x 5.20 cm
Flourish: 5.00 x 0.80 in. 12.70 x 2.00 cm

I used this die as a TV demo to create a mini notecard holder.
Here's the instructions - different coloured card but the same rules apply.

First, cut a piece of cardstock to 5″ x 11″ and score at 5″ and 6″.  
This is your outer cover, position the inset die to the top,
which way up is your choice!

For the inner pockets, cut two pieces of card measuring 3.25″ x 6.25″.  
Score each pocket at 0.5″ and 1″ on all three sides.
CEmberson - Notecard Holder 2
Cut the bottom square sections from each of the scored pockets – see picture. 
CEmberson - Notecard Holder 3
Using a bone folder, fold along the score lines and attach Extreme Double-Sided Tape.

Affix as pictured.

Here's how it looks in the ivory.

Cut an additional Delicate Tendril Border die cut and affix to the bottom
of the outer cover.
Here's how the covers look using the die different ways up at the top.
Still not sure which one I prefer. The Flourish is cut from gold,
again placed different ways up and the left hand one has added pearls.

Inside I've created mini gift cards using Nobel Chatelaine
and Cinch and Go V
Simple designs with plenty more gold!

Eye news - check up yesterday, all pretty much going to plan except
struggling with bright light including the PC screen
(typed this over the course of two days!)
It just needs a little bit more time to settle down so the next op
has been postponed to just before Easter.

Take care friends and wishing you all a lovely weekend.

Stunning card set Christine, I think I like the 2nd way up the best but both are beautiful and it was a difficult choice. A wonderful die set with lots of uses. Glad the eye is doing well. Have a great weekend xx Hazel

Hi Christine
Love both your cards but I love bling and pearls so number 1 goes into the lead for me .
John had to wear sun glasses when he went out after his op , but it settled down after a few weeks.

Take care
