Spellbinders Water Lilies Strip

Hi Everybody,

Today I am going to show you three different cards made using the same die set and each is very intricate and pretty in its own right,  This is the Water Lilies Strip from Spellbinders and the die is in three pieces. One central patterned piece and two separate cutting edges

This means that you can choose to  leave the pattern in the card by omitting the cutting edges or choose one edge and cut that with the patterned piece or do as I have done for the this card

For the first card I have simply used all three pieces to remove the die cut from the card and then added them, with foam pads beneath, as separate panels to the front of a layered 5x7 base

For this second card I have create a tent fold card in 5x7 and then added one cutting edge and the patterned die to the outer part

From white and pink patterned paper I have created layers to add to the left of the card and lined the inside to match

I have tied ribbon around the left panels and add a pearl string, a bow and a centre piece for the knot

The words are layered up to give thickness and the top layer is in black

The last card has had the die placed into  the centre of the A4 card to add the pattern

I cut one extra die cut patterned layer to add to the top of this for strength

Then other blue panels have been cut for back and front and embossed and the sentiment added to the front of the card

So with just one die set you can have three totally different looking cards and I am sure that you will come up with many more ways to use this versatile die

More tomorrow ...
