Friday Die Day

Hello friends

It's Friday so that means Friday Die Day!
This week I am featuring Diagonal Chevron.
This is one of the Spellbinders® decorative card front dies, using these mean your
half way there in creating a card!
The set consists of two die templates, the outer border and inner decorative die.
Approximate measurements:
Inset: 3¾ x 5”
Border: 4¼ x 5”
This is how it looks cut/embossed.
To create my card I wanted to use the bottom section of the inset die to cut/emboss
patterned chevrons (the fallout pieces).  And yes, that's a well loved cutting plate!
Here they are, lots of patterned mini chevrons. I've done this with
two pieces of patterned paper from my scrap box.
Adhered my white card front to some spotty kraft card.
I then started to apply the chevron pieces,
raising some of them with 3D Foam Squares cut in half.
I matted the card front onto pale green patterned paper and white cardstock.
Then the extra die cuts to decorate, Sprigs, Blooms One and Sentiments 4.
The finished card.

Eagled eyed may have noticed that the card is a little similar to a recent
Tuesday Tip/Technique...
the same spotty kraft paper and the sentiment - I made use of the 'Get Well'!
All bits and bobs still laying around on my craft desk.
Have a great weekend everyone, still no snow here which saddens me a little,
I love the snow although I know it's not practical, can't help feeling excited by it though!
I've had a few requests for the blueberry muffin recipe, stop by tomorrow :)
Take care friends.

Hi Christine, what a great FDD, I've never seen this die, but love what did with it & love the get well card you made with left overs! I'm afraid I'm a bit of a kill joy when it comes to snow, great on a Christmas cards, but every day I wake up and it hasn't snowed, I breathe a sigh of relief! Hugs Carole Z xx

Lovely card today & that die looks very useful. I wouldn't have remembered that you used the same paper earlier in the week as I have a memory like a sieve!

Michele said...

Hi All.
Thank you Christine I have this die and use it a lot with the inspire dies birds on a line and the sneakers. We have snow today Northamptonshire. Take care all, sorry Christine but I share Carole Z's views Take care all Kitty.

Rosie said...

Great use of the chevron die. Like that idea a lot!

Hi Christine. What a pretty card, using foam pads to some of the chevrons is a great idea. I love kraft card and this spotty version is lovely.
I love snow, we only had a few flakes so far this year, but if only it didn't fall on roads and pavements. That way we would all be happy! Stay safe and warm please. Take care.

Morning Christine
Great FDD. I love what you have done with the little chevrons. Looks a bit fiddle to do but worth the effort.
I noticed some of your projects on the Spellbinder's site. They looked great.
As for snow we have loads of the stuff. The place ground to a halt yesterday. The children's' schools closed at lunchtime (much to the children's delight) and offices closed early. Not sure if I am a fan.
Take care

Hi Christine
You do have some lovely ideas both these cards are masterpieces. I was fancying having the recipe for the chocolate chip cookies as they really look mouth watering I'm not surprised the boys couldn't resist them.

Keep warm

Morning Christine,
A very pretty card, this could be made into a male card. As for the snow sorry but that can stay away.

Lovely card as always Christine, yum, can't wait for the recipe. If it is as easy as you said they will be made often in this house.

Lovely cards Christine. I haven't seen the chevron die either. Looks as though it could be useful for the men in our lives.

Margaret Wilson said...

This is a really good idea when using the chevron die - must add it to my wish list.

Unknown said...

Lovely card Christine, but I wish the whole die had been chevrons. Our little bit of snow (half an inch) has gone this morning, and it's a lot warmer today.

scofessex said...

Hi Christine those cookies looked delicious can we have the recipe as well as the blueberry muffins.x

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Christina
Lovely card today and this die is quite eye catching. Love it in the White but it was making my eyes ache with the pinky red you had behind it. I'm glad we've not had any snow. Take care all those that have.
I look forward to the blueberry muffins.

Patricia Howarth said...

Hi Christine, I absolutely love everything about this card, it is truly gorgeous.
We have had snow for the past 2 days, and I absolutely hate it, it is ok on a card or in a picture, but in 'real life' it causes disruption and is so very dangerous when it freezes on top, and if you have to go out in it, it is awful. Sorry, but I'm waiting eagerly for the sunshine hahaha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Janice said...

I really like this chevron die Christine, and love the card you have made. Great effect inserting the cut outs too.
Looking forward to your muffin recipe. Thankfully only a light dusting of snow here which disappeared by 10am...phew!
