Friday Die Day

Hello friends

It's Friday and that means Friday Die Day and keeping with all things
Becca this is Charming Christmas Boughs from the
Charming Christmas Collection.
I really like this die set and thought it doesn't necessarily have
to be Christmas.
It's a 5 piece die set and the approximate measurements are:
Ornament Topper: 0.35 x 0.50 in 0.90 x 1.30 cm
Snowflake: 0.60 x 0.60 in 1.50 x 1.50 cm
Ornament Charm: 1.20 x 1.70 in 3.00 x 4.30 cm
Bough Frame: 4.50 x 4.50 in 11.40 x 11.40 cm

I started by matting silver foil card and patterned paper onto 
a square card front.
The patterned paper is Anna Griffin and available in one of our
paper packs on the website here.

Using the largest die element, the frame - I cut this from silver foil card.
Using a piece of the same patterned paper (this is the reverse design)
die cut a square. 

Inserting the square from the back and tucking it through the various loops.

Affixed into place on my card front.

With the patterned paper creating a Cinch and Go Poinsettia.
I lightly inked the edges with distress ink and inserted stamens to the middle.
Held in place with a 3D Foam Square.

The finished card with little stamped tag sentiment.

Items used today with clickable links:

I'm back for a little bit and then heading back to Hochanda 
for Becca's next lot of shows, she will be back on air
Wednesday and Thursday.
I'm taking my laptop so I will be blogging but possibly
somewhat erratically! 

Take care friends and wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Hi Christine, I love the papers, I love the die-cuts, and I love this card, and the way you have the mirror die-cut 'holding' the square paper, a brilliant idea.
I'm glad everything was fine with Becca, and you will be looking forward to your next 'catch up' this next week, I'm looking forward to the next shows too and what Becca will be demo'ing.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
