One Die.....Two Ways.....

Morning all, half way into the week already !! Hope you are having a good week so far.
I recently bought the Sue Wilson "Frames and Tags - Flora" die. I decided to cut it out in mauve card stock. The left over piece of card looked good too, so I decided to create 2 cards using the same technique. 

I stuck some double sided sticky paper to the back of both pieces, then sprinkled lemon glitter over both pieces. As you can see on the photo below, I've added black dots onto the "waste" piece of card, to give the same illusion as the die cut piece.

 I've used similar papers as a background, and an octagon die to create the frame. A sentiment on both finish off the cards.

Another tip, is to use the "off-cuts" from the backing papers as a embellishment on the inside. I think that this makes the card look more professional. (despite the blurred photo !!)

Back to knitting tomorrow, see you soon x
