Friday Die Day

Hello friends

This week's Friday Die Day is a festive die so I'm either 
late or very early! 
It's Charming Snowflake Doily one of the Charming Christmas
Collection dies designed by Becca Feeken.
It occured to me that the main snowflake element could be used 
all year round especially as it features hearts and with
Valentine's on the horizon....

There are six dies in total and the approximate measurements are:

Star Charm: 1.20 x 1.25 in 3.00 x 3.20 cm
Snowflake Charm: 1.20 x 1.35 in 3.00 x 3.40 cm
Bell Charm: 1.25 x 1.35 in 3.20 x 3.40 cm
Snowflake Inner Rim: 1.80 x 1.80 in 4.60 x 4.60 cm
Snowflake: 4.00 x 4.25 in 10.10 x 10.80 cm
Snowflake Outer Rim: 4.50 x 4.75 in 11.40 x 12.10 cm

I have placed the large snowflake inset die onto the right hand 
bottom corner of my 5 x 5 card front and I'm going to emboss only.

The sandwich for this with the Platinum is card with die taped in place upwards,
embossing mat and blue embossing plate. 
I recommend you use good cardstock with a reasonable weight for 
embossing only otherwise it may cut through.

The embossed only card front.

Next I discovered my box of washi tape - goodness I've accumulated a lot of tape!
Time to use some up. Applied strips of tape to a piece of card.

Positioned and die cut a circle.

Positioned and held in place with 3D Foam Squares.

To finish my card, I added twine, a stamped 'thank you' sentiment, gemstones
and a little flower and leaf set.
White, clean, simple and not Christmassy at all!

Hi Christine,
I love your card, all white with a splash of colour. Love the embossing technique but I always forget to do this, thanks for the reminder.
Enjoy your classes tomorrow.

Hi Christine, I have the Platinum6 and just want to be sure I have the order right for embossing. From the bottom plate: Die face up then cardstock. Rubber mat on top of the cardstock, then the blue embossing plate.
Do I have that right?
Lovely card!

Very pretty Christine. Never think to just emboss a die into cardstock. Xx

Hi Christine
Your card is certainly different. You wouldn’t guess you’d used a Christmas snowflake die. Thanks for sharing.
