Friday Die Day

Hello friends
Today's Friday Die Day is a Valentine's theme...well it had to be!
The featured die is Lace Hearts.
You receive four heart die templates in this set along with a key and accent.
Please note you can use the two larger hearts as solids or interchange
with the two lacy centres.  
 This is how they look cut/embossed.
 An idea for the key is to use Engraving Foil/Card -
I have this available in copper, silver or gold here.
You only need a small piece, cut/emboss and then use a sanding block lightly. 
The result is a nice old fashioned copper key.  
Love the tiny heart cut out from the key handle. 
Today it is a card. 
Using A2 Matting Basics B, I nested a smaller die horizontally inside a larger vertical die.
A postbox design as I call it.
 Once cut/embossed I chose a kraft card base.
I have not adhered it yet, just looking at size...
I stamped a sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.
Delving down my scrap box I found some appropriate patterned paper
and adhered a piece to the card base.
Attached Crafty Foam Tape to the reverse of my white 'post box' die cut
and adhered to the kraft card base so the patterned paper showed through the window.
 Really simple to finish - attach a die cut Lace Heart with a little black peg.
Some close up shots that show how beautiful the heart is.

 Wishing you all a love-filled Valentine's Day.
Take care friends - have a brilliant weekend.

Hello Christine, I have looked at these heart dies and didn't realize that the inner's are inter changeable. The made up card is clever and frugal.

Sally said...

Hi Christine, This card is lovely, so simple yet effective.
I had promised myself I would not buy another
single die, until I had used every single die I have already got...but I may have to break the promise.

Have a great weekend.

I adore the Lace Hearts die and it's great to see it featured on Friday Die Day! That key is so cute. Your card is beautiful and I love it! Thank you for showing how useful the Matting Basics are. I don't have any of these, but I'm certainly thinking about buying now - it beats measuring and cutting by hand for layering etc. Oh no, here comes the rain again!

Alma said...

Hi Christine, this is a beautiful set of dies and your work is so inspirational - just what i need at the moment. I have taken a few months off from crafting and need to get my creativity back in force.

Have a great week end.
