Embossing and Die Cutting

Ohhh I had great fun yesterday 
Since getting a portrait cutting machine I have become lazy with my dies , so yesterday out came my big shot and with a quick flick over with the duster, found my box of dies and off I set.
I found some stunning dies not even opened but they were must have's at the time I'm sure
I found a lovely rolling rose die from Sizzix, I had to try that one out!


I cut two card bases from 12 x6 from white card stock to make 6x6 cards - (I wish on hindsight I did 7 x 7 there was so much more I wanted to add)
Card 1
I used a lovely peacock embossing folder , it is so very pretty .
I used a circle die on the center
Matted onto blue cardstck
I then die cut some swirls and flourishes, Flowers leafs and butterfly.
The butterfly I cut twice so I could give it a blue center.
I then die cut a smaller circle and stamped on the sentiment.



Card 2
Again using a pretty 6x6 embossing folder - I adore this one it gives you so much room for the center.
I cut the clock out on my portrait 
The swirls and flourishes and leafs were die cut
and there are those beautiful flowers  I mentioned earlier.
I finished of with some baby blue pearls.
After finishing this card I thought it might make a lovely wedding card , changing the time to the time of the wedding , and popping there names into the center


Thank you for looking
