Beatrice

Good morning crafters!  Welcome to day number seven.  We are continuing on with the Frames and Tags category and here we have Beatrice.  Beatrice was designed to fit smaller cards and projects as so many people have asked for smaller dies.  She works beautifully as a focal element or in conjunction with other larger dies to layer up and add detail.  This die has been done with an inner decorative die and an outer cutting edge so you can easily cut into the card or add a backing and raise it up for dimension.  Add your comment here if you would like a chance to win this one.  The next post is at noon today.  I hope you can join me back here then.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. Day 7 already !! What a sweet die, only problem I see is that if the sample was in a lighter shade we could see just how gorgeous she was but a beautiful sample and great size for our smaller cards xxx

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, well this die is certainly going to be a hit because it is smaller with such a pretty pattern too, yes gets my vote xx

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Morning Sue, sometimes a smaller die is just what you need. Love the design of this one, and how do you come up with all the names, they are fab. The background of this card is gorgeous especially as it reflects the focal die cut. Have a good day everyone. Bx

Karen Drew said...

The die might be smaller but the detail is huge. This will be fab for when you make smaller cards.

Hi Sue
Beatrice is small but perfectly formed. She really is going to work well on all sizes of cards.
Love this card - that colour is gorgeous.
I have missed commenting on quite a few posts over last couple of days and am out for the day today so will have to try and play catch up tomorrow. I have managed to have a very quick look at the cards and they are all absolutely stunning and I am really loving this incredible collection of new dies. They are amazing.

Marie P.from Longridge said...

Good Wednesday morning Sue.


I can almost hear my Mum saying "Good stuff lies in little room" she used to say it every time we said that something was too small.
I think I agree with her in this case as Beatrice is smaller than many of your dies but just as gorgeous.

Good Morning Sue. Lovely start to day seven. And what a beautiful girl she is too. Love how you have made the background with the main die ...... but still kept the main die as a main centre focal....if you know what I mean. The sample is very lovely. Well done Sue. And Thankyou. Someone is going to be very lucky to win this one. Sending best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Good to see some smaller dies, but I can’t quite make this one out, has it been embossed rather than cut? I love the names you have given all these Dies.

Hi Sue,
Another lovely card made with Beatrice. I am currently using it as part of a background, but then things went awry with my plan (Needed Jocelyn), so I'll have to plan again. But it does make a lovely background using it in the 4 corners.
