Love & Happiness...Just Because!

Hello!
Today, I'm happy to be posting my creations on the Die-Versions blog!
I had a great time, working with two of the Die-Versions dies.  Have I mentioned
that they cut like butter?  Wow - such a joy to cut with!


The card above was made using the Die-Versions DVW-322 "Crochet Lace" Die.  It was cut twice, and adhered on top and bottom of a black panel.  A flourish border stamp was added to the top and bottom, and a sentiment to the center of the panel.  The panel was then attached to a solid white card base.  Black and white is a favorite color combo of mine - always looks elegant!


The second card uses both the Die-Versions DVW-322 "Crochet Lace" Die, and the Die-Versions DVW  "Chrysanthemum" Whispers Die.  The Chrysanthemum was cut from both white and Kraft.  The Kraft was turned to show from behind the white piece.  A sentiment and a bit of bling finished this card off nicely! I always use my Perfect Papercrating Tools to achieve the beautiful, even matting! See sidebar for details!

I hope that you'll head over to the Die-Versions store, and do some shopping!
We'd also be happy for you to follow the Die-Versions Blog,
and 'Like' our Facebook page!

See you again on the 10th with my next project - I'll be showcasing some of the new release dies!

Thanks for stopping by,

Patti J.

These are both such beautiful cards, Patti! I've always liked the black and white combo, too. The die-cuts are fantastic. I LOVE using dies - they add such a professional look to cards.

an intricate die that cuts like butter? I'll have to check out, I always have problems with intricate dies and tend to avoid them. Beautiful, elegant cards!
