Using An A2 Border Die

 Some basic designs that have so many
possibilities using Spellbinders A2 Border dies.
I have FIVE sets and am anxiously awaiting their
next round of new dies.
 The phrases are computer generated using the Word program.
If you try this you will have be sure to leave
plenty of room between the phrases so 
that your dies will fit.
 I have used a little longer phrase
and repeated a short phrase.  
With the longer phrase you do have 
to be careful to center your die with the
center of the phrase.
 The possibilities are endless with these dies.
I am hooked!!!!
A design without a phrase.

New Die!

 Here is the new die from Joy Craft.
The bottom picture is of the die cut with our
sponging ink on the portions of the die 
that are cut out for embossing.
I really really like the sponging.
The top card is the last one made.
While I like the green one, the texture of the
dotted Swiss embossing folder really adds a lot.l
 The addition of pearls does add a lot.
Which one is your favorite?

Using An A2 border

The die cuts are Spellbinders A2 Border.
I love these dies, there are just so many different ways they can be used.
The paper is a double sided K & Company.
Using the double sided paper makes it easy to
match the various shades of color.
The light liner of the die cut is silver metallic
gift wrap.

The scrapbook double sided paper cover a white card base.
I very seldom use the dp as a card base.
For one thing it is just not heavy enough and
I am stingy with my precious lovely dp.
