Friday Die Day

Hello friends

This week's Friday Die Day is Lisette Oval.
This is one of Becca Feeken's Shadow Box Collection dies
that works alongside the shadow boxes or as a stand alone.
There are multiple ovals within the die set along with a decorative flourish.
I started with an ivory card base.
The patterned paper is Anna Griffin and available in a pack
on the website here (also one of our bargains!)
Using the middle size oval I cut out an aperture.

I then mounted the script patterned paper with Crafty Foam Tape.
Flipped the oval to reveal the reverse busier pattern and placed this inside 
the aperture.

Using the decorative ovals, I die cut both from ivory cardstock.

I affixed the largest to the card front around the patterned paper oval.

Time to make the flowers - these are Cinch and Go Flowers IV
Cut from watercolour card.
Lots of sizes in this set so brilliant for whatever size flower you need.

I inked with distress inks, spritzed with water and cinched -
I really did squeeze and manipulate these to 
create vintage(ish) looking flowers.

Clustered with the leaves on the middle size decorative oval.

The finished card with the addition of pearls, gold cord and
a little Hello sentiment.

For other items designed by Becca please click here.
back in stock, these work well with the shadow box dies.

I know many of you are awaiting the actual shadow box frames
to be back in stock.  I keep checking with the UK distributors but no sign as yet
but I promise to shout it from the rooftops as soon as they arrive.

A very busy weekend for me, I'm going to be at Crafts Plus in Basildon
tomorrow and Sir Stampalot in Peterborough on Sunday.
Both days are workshops, it still isn't too late if you wish to attend any,
please contact each craft shop to book.

Take care friends, have a smashing weekend,
what are you up to?

Beautiful card and l like how you have not layered the centre topper in the middle but placed it to the bottom of the larger die cut with the flowers. Have a wonderful time at both workshops. WakeyL
