Using the Corners ...

Hi Everybody,

I have not had time yet to play with the craft show goodies from yesterday but I will make something with them later today.

This is a card I made  a while ago and can't remember if I ever posted it.

So if I have then my apologies ... and if I haven't then here is the card.

It is just a long thin card 21 x 14 cms  with the fold at the top.

I have layered it up with pink and black on the white base.   There are two dies in this Filigree Corners pack and  I cut several of the largest corner in white.

They have been layered onto an embossed panel and I have dotted some small pearls on the points

The Labels Eighteen has been cut around the sentiment,  which is from   Lili of the Valley   and it has matching "Bling" from   Want2Scrap

The flowers are from   Wild Orchid Crafts   and if you only want a small amount of flowers then don't forget the   Starter Packs   which are a real bargain.

So this is just a couple of ideas on how to use up those corner dies with a little difference

And the card on the left  is to add them as a pocket for you to add a little tag into

Tuck them  into the pocket as a good place  for you or any one who buys your cards to add any personal sentiment or signature

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  20. I've not seen this one before, Christina, it's really beautiful! I love the way you constantly manage to show us all the different ways to use our dies. I don't have all that many but before I started following your blog I would never have thought to cut into them or use them in places other than they were meant for, like these corners. Thanks so much, I can't wait to see how you use your goodies :). x
