The Less is More Challenge this week is 'Diamonds' and I'm sneaking in with a last minute entry. After abandoning my first efforts with stencil and embossing folder, both with diamond shapes, I eventually settled on a corner die.
The corner die is one of the MB 'Distresssed Windham Collage' dies. The flower die is one I picked up in a bargain bucket for about a third of the recommended price! I wasn't sure what to do with the die, as it cuts out a very thin outline, which easily goes out of shape it attached straight to a card blank. So, I decided to inlay the die cut, a new technique to me, but one I've seen used a lot on other bloggers' cards. I used the die first in the white card to get the shape of the flowers and pot. Then I inserted the green die cut outline, before finally using the die cut again with snippets of lilac and green card and inserting all the little pieces. I'm sure someone will tell me that's how the die is supposed to be used! LOL!
