On Your Christening Day

Hello and welcome back. It's my turn today to share a card at the Dies R Us Inspirational Blog.  I'd like to share the card I made for my grandson's Christening and show you how I used some of my dies to make embellishments to add to the stamped image.


As you can see above, I used several different dies to enhance my digital image. I started by using the Pinpoint Scalloped Circles from Memory Box and made two mats in different sizes - one for the digi image and the other for the greeting.  Then I cut out one of the sprigs from the Spellbinder's Sprigs die set, to create a green leafy base for my flowers.  Next, I cut and used two of  the branches from the Flourishes and Branches die set by Elizabeth Crafts.  I added tiny gems to these two little branches to add a little more interest and a bit of sparkle.  And there you have it ~ just by using a few dies here and there, you can create your own embellishments and mats to make your images stand out and bring colour into your design.

Here is a quick look at the dies I used and where you can find them at the Dies R Us store





I hope my post has inspired you to use your dies to add embellishments to your cards.
