Friday Die Day

Hello friends

Brhhh - it is truly winter now, I returned to my London job
yesterday and even in the city it was -4! 
I prepared this week's Friday Die Day with my cabin heater 
running on high!
This week it is Lisette Oval, one of Becca Feeken's lovely designs.
It is a 6 piece die set and the approximate measurements are:

Large Oval 4.25 x 5.50 in. 10.80 x 14.00 cm
Large Pattern Oval: 4.05 x 5.25 in. 10.30 x 13.30 cm
Medium Oval 2.70 x 3.60 in. 6.90 x 9.10 cm
Slat Pattern: 2.50 x 3.40 in. 6.40 x 8.60 cm
Small Oval: 1.65 x 2.55 in. 4.20 x 6.50 cm
Accent: 1.40 x 1.40 in. 3.60 x 3.60 cm

I created a tri-fold card and positioned the largest oval inset die 
to the far right for partial die cutting.

By keeping the cutting plate in line with the scored line 
it cut just a section of the oval.

I then die cut the mid size oval and insert die from the same ivory card 
and chopped off a little bit! 

Attaching Anna Griffin patterned paper inside.

Returning to my card front, attaching the snipped mid size oval die cut.
I then used the smallest oval in this set and the reverse of the patterned paper
for the centre piece.  Again, chopped a section (it does look like an egg!)
and stamped 'thank you' to the middle.  All held in place with 3D Foam Squares.

The finished card with the addition of twine and inked little flowers and leaves.

This shows the patterned paper inside.

I can't help myself - just adore little flowers!

Lisette Oval is available on the website here,
on sale too! 
The Anna Griffin foiled paper is available in paper packs here.
3D Foam Squares available here

I'm off to Crafts Plus in Basildon tomorrow
and Sunday I'm hoping to get my sewing machine out to do another 
quilting panel, that's the plan or I may just be staring at snow! 

Take care friends and keep those mittens on!

Hallo Christine, what an interesting way to use the die and such a pretty card. Don't envy you having to venture out in the snow. Been very lucky here in Suffolk so far only a tiny fall overnight and it has thawed very quickly. Hoping to go to the Thetford show on Sunday and so far the forecast looks ok. Enjoy your trip to Basildon and have a good weekend xx
