One die ... 2 cards

Click to Enlarge
Hi Everybody,

The two cards featured today are another example of how one die can look so totally different when used in another way.

The die in question is the  Layered Scallop Posy

In the first card I have cut it out twice to form an elongated circle and then embossed a centre strip and wrapped the ribbon around it. 

The bow is a Double Bow with Tails made using the Bow Maker
and the centre has the addition of a
 Wild Orchid Flowers

In the second card I have again cut the shape out twice but used it  as a filigree insert for the Elegant Labels Four 

Both are done in the same blue and white card.

The ribbon on the second card is a thin Gingham and it has been  made following the    Ruffled Ribbon Technique  with a tiny bow added to the top

The addition of some small Want2Scrap   pearls are the finishing touch.
