Curly Fern die

Hello there my crafty friends!   The second post of the day is dedicated to showing off the Curly Fern die set.  This finishing touches set has a right and left facing curly fern die so it is perfect for use with all your floral elements.  It can be easily nipped to make it smaller if need be too.  Shown here, it makes a lovely addition to the sides of your focal element as a useful accent for your flowers.  Leave a comment if you think this set is for you.  The final post of the day today is at 3pm (sorry just three posts today and tomorrow.)  I hope you can join us back here then as it is a real stunner!  All for now, Sue x

stitchingranny said...

Although the foliage is a sort of background feature that we hardly notice, the flowers would not stand out the same with out it and like the flowers the different types can enhance the flowers themselves. Essentials in my book.

Hugs Helen (stitch) xx
ps a beautiful card too

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I did get one of your dies that was similar to these, but it is quite big and only faces in one direction (sounds like a boy band) so this set is ideal for people like me who like to make smaller cards.

Donita Naylor said...

Interesting array on the fronds, but they're also not my cup of tea. I do like the funny mid-level stubs in the fronts, just not the the doodle look.

Best of luck in the drawing to anyone who loves this one.
