Friday Die Day

Hello friends
 
This week's Friday Die Day is Beaded Squares
 
 
Beaded Squares is a three piece die set and the approximate
measurements are:
 
Small Frame: 1.40 x 1.40 in
Large Frame: 2.25 x 2.25 in
Flower: 0.80 x 0.80 in
 
This is how they look cut/embossed.

 
To create my card background I die cut a piece of ivory cardstock using 5 x 7 Matting Basics.
Once cut I kept the cardstock inside the die, opened the embossing folder -
placed on platform.  Positioned die and die cut (cutting edge upwards).

 
Cover with tan mat and one cutting plate.
Run through the machine.

 
This way you retain a frame line with an embossed patterned middle.

 
Matted onto a further ivory mat and affixed to card front.

 
I then used both frames from the Beaded Square set,
largest positioned diamond wise and the smaller as a square.

 
Placed a sentiment across the middle and then the flower from the set
cut from lilac cardstock.
The little green leaf (Homespun die set).
 
The finished card.


 
Lovely detailed emboss on the flower die.

 
is available as a bundle on the website and also included is a pack
of 3D Foam Butterflies.
A tempting trio and all for the bargain price of £8.75 -
details are here
 

Take care friends and wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
I'm off to take part in a craft workshop tomorrow, it has been ages since I attended a
workshop and it is something slightly out of my comfort zone...messy with paint!
More details to follow.

Morning Christine, I love how you have embossed the original base die-cut, and your finished card is so pretty with these beautiful dies.
Have a lovely time at your painty class.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
