Let me count the ways....with Floral Gatefold

Hello friends

I've featured this die a few times because I really really like it!
And also one of my blog followers likes it too and sent me a project photo
which spurred me to write this blog post.
The die is Floral Gatefold designed by Sharyn Sowell for Spellbinders.

It's one die, a really good sized die.
Here's some different ways to use it including Sheila Howard's lovely card.

In this project I've used watercolour paints and cut the die cut to create card corners.

Keeping the die cut white with a silver mirror card drop shadow and
stamping around the outer edge.

Using it traditionally as a gatefold card. 

And this is Sheila's card lovely card.  When I first looked I thought 
she had coloured the die cut and stamped over it.
It is actually DCWV paper offset with green die cut behind,
looks very effective.
Thank you Sheila for sharing your card.

Floral Gatefold is available on the website here 
and in the sale too.

Today back to city job, it comes around way too quickly and severely
hampers the crafty stuff! ;) 

Take care friends and please stop by tomorrow for Friday Die Day.
