Now I have to tell you that Michele told me she wasn't going to but the Die-Cutting Essentials Magazine again, after she was a little disappointed with the first one that she purchased.
But I have to say that I am very pleased that she did change her mind, I believe she was swayed by the free die that came with the magazine....The Creative Expressions 'Pictor Die' from their Gemini Die range, designed by the Incredibly talented Sue Wilson, As we get to see these amazing cards,
both created with the same card and die.
Michele has used the die as a border on the first card, die cutting it in white and then backing it by using the outside cutting edge to cut the lilac mat to go under the intricate die cut, Michele has used one on each end and then cut them to fit down the sides, creating an amazing frame, in the background Michele has used the Stitched Lattice Frame Die, also from CE, the frame has been created with the Frame part of the same die.
The second card Michele has created by using just the Decorative part of the die cut in white to add some beautiful detail around the square frame, it doesn't really look like the same die, just by adding that square frame and adding the die cut circle with the sentiment in the centre has given the die a completely different look.
Thank you so much Michele, it is fantastic to show how very versatile dies can be, you have done this brilliantly today. I am so very grateful that you allowed me to share your cards with our friends here on the blog xxx
I have some photos of Pat's holiday to share with you tomorrow, one being a very deliscious looking dessert,
I hope she brings us all some back.
Love and hugs
