Climbing Floral Vine

Hi there my crafty friends!  We have reached the final two days of the launch and these will both be shorter days with only three posts per day.  For the start of the penultimate day, I would like to share the Climbing Floral Vine with you.  This die adds a lovely floral detail to your cards and can be used as a border, a focal element or even a background as I have done here.  It is easily snipped into smaller bits and can be used as an accent die too.  I think you will find yourself reaching for this one quite a bit!  Leave your comment here if this is one you would like a chance to win.  The next post will be online at 12 noon today.  All for now, Sue x

Donita Naylor said...

Yes, this vine has done some climbing on my list too.

I have the holly one and was able to resist the leaf one but wish for it often, so I'm thinking I've earned this one!

Snipping and paper piecing really do add to this die's versatility.

Big thanks to you and the artist who draws your ideas.

Best to all,

Donita in R.I.

Ahh, there is that word again - "penultimate". I have only seen this word in your blog with the exception of when I looked it up in the dictionary a few years back. Your "Climbing Floral Vine" die will be a very versatile die. It makes a great background mutilcut and shadowed. Did you make this card as a shaker card? I think I see shinny bits.
