TATTERED LACE - Morning Chorus Tapestry


I purchased this die at our TCE*** Group Gathering a couple of years ago.  Tattered Lace dies are expensive but for some reason I thought I had to have this one.  I definitely need to use it more often to justify the cost.  Their dies are more intricate than some and they do cut very well and have such beautiful designs.

The paper I used  is Stampin' Up'! So  Saffron.   The die leaves an entire frame around the entire design but I cut off the top and side portions of the frame which made it possible to mount the matted piece onto a So Saffron card base. 

Square cards are not something I do very often.  Since square envelopes require additional postage,  I still use the A2 envelopes.

*** TCE = Our group is called The Creative Embossers.  We did start off making our cards using brass stencils for most of our designs.  We gradually found ourselves doing more stamping and using dies than using brass stencils but have kept the name.

Thank you for coming by today!

You're right, Vicki - that IS a beautiful die! I like the way you finished it off, too.

Such a pretty springy card.

SECOND LADY BUG CARD

I like this one better because of the colors I used.  I also had flipped the stencil over embossing the design pieces going the opposite ...
