It’s the weekend again and I hope you have a fantastically crafty one!
is the last project in my Week 8 Challenge – Uses for Die Sets. Well,
maybe not quite! I made two projects yesterday, one was this card and
the second I’ll share with you tomorrow. It’s a tatty cardboard box I
use to store an assortment of glues in. It would have been easier to
dispose of it and get a new one but, I’m a paper-crafter and knew I
could renovate it. I used the Deco Labels Framelits for part of the
decoration, so more about that tomorrow.
project 5, I decided I would make a shaped easel card using the dies
and I’m really pleased with the result. Using this die set the finished
card is smaller than the normal size I make. The finished size is 4 1/4″
x 3 5/8″ and fits into one of our note card envelopes – the width, just
about and the length has about 3/4″ spare.
To start with, I die cut a normal-size card in Blushing Bride using the no. 4 die by
placing the edge of the die just above the fold. I folded one side in
half towards the centre, to form the easel support. Then I did a single
die cut, also in Blushing Bride. I used no. 2 to cut one Whisper White
and no. 3 to cut two in Whisper White.

Best Day Ever sentiment is from the Birthday Blossoms and was stamped
off to the right hand side of the smallest die cut. I stamped three
flowers from the Petite Petals stamp set and three from the Pictogram
Punches stamp set. They were all punched out using the corresponding
stamped Happy Birthday To You from the Circle of Spring Stamp Set and
punched it out with the 1″ circle punch and layered it a Whisper White
scalloped circle punched with the 1 1/4″ scalloped circle punch.
All stamping was done with Blushing Bride ink on Whisper White card stock. Finally, I adhered everything together!
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
