My Friend Die - a card from Karen

A nice simple design today on an A5 card blank.  This is another that Jodie made live on air just to show how simple but effective these dies are to use.

The Lych Gate Wish was die cut in cream card and the outer edge was die cut to the same size in gold mirror card for a backing.  This was stuck directly to the card front aligned with the bottom.  The waste that was left from that die cut was trimmed, layered and used for the top of the card and glued in to place.

I Die cut a scalloped oval from the layering set in gold mirror and a matching plain edged oval in cream which I then embossed using the small pattern on the Garland Fancy embossing folder from the Idyllics range, these were layered and stuck to the card with 3d foam pads.

The wording was die cut from the new Just Because Sentiments and trimmed down to fit in both both burgandy and gold and drop shadowed then glued to the oval.

I cut three burgandy and two gold flowers from the Windsor Widebrim die set and added pearls to the centres.  I finished this one off with a chunky hand tied bow.
