Topic: Die Cuts
I recently got a new set of Spellbinders dies that has three sizes and patterns of cut and tuck medallions. The die cuts out the item as well as all the inner slices that allow you to fold back a 'V' shape and tuck it under the vacated 'V' from the neighboring cut.
I picked out the two smaller dies to play with. I used all shimmer materials - a duo tone paper for the medallions and cardstock for the embossed background as well as diecut scallops to frame the medallions.
The smaller medallion has additional cut out areas so has a more lacy feel. For the card with two pink shimmers I used an asian embossing folder.
For a green and blue combo I used the folder called Ornamental Iron. I added a scalloped border at the bottom to balance out the sentiment. (the camera has some issues will all this shine and texture)
Then I used the same sets of papers with the large medallion. The pink version got a fleur-de-lis embossed background.
And the blue/green version got embossing of bamboo.
I turned all of these into Thank You cards with the sentiments popped up on foam tape. Also, in each case the medallion got a rhinestone as a centerpiece.
