Hey! Over the weekend I made a card using the new dies I got from Stampin Up! I must admit that I was a little dismayed with some of the dies in the set. When I used the large die that you seen behind the flowers I saw that it just cuts out the little diamond bits as you see can see in this card I made and posted a few days ago. A few days later I realized that I could actually trim the piece out to create a different look. So for several days I had this piece floating around and over the weekend I decided to make something with it. I had some cardstock left over from making the card I mentioned above so I used that to make the flowers with two other dies from the set. There was another die that puzzled me, as well. It is the little leafy one that you see embossed into the cardstock. When I went to use it I thought it would die cut this cute little leafy bit, but when I was done saw that it only embosses! Initially I was disappointed, but then I used it to make my card and now I actually think it is kind of clever. Anyway, here is my card. The sentiment is from the stamp set that coordinates with the dies and was embossed on vellum. I'm going to post it to CAS(E) this Sketch since the layout is based on their sketch, as well as CAS on Sunday. This is pretty clean and simple and it does have flowers on it.
Have a wonderful day!
