embossing and die cutting

IMG_4120 (Medium)The rose die that I used on these two cards was a freebie on the front of a card making magazine.On both cards I die cut the rose, then stuck it on contrasting card and fussy cut around it to give the two tone effect. I have some border embossing folders so they are the ones I used on the card on the right, and I used my Kaisercraft rose embossing folder on the left card – that folder is becoming a favourite! the fancy edge on the left card was die cut with spellbinders borders dies.Both cards were finished off with ribbon bows.The “with love” is another freebie die,and I die cut the letters on the other card to spell Mum.Quick post today, til tomorrow…..
