This pretty card uses the Botanical Swirls from Spellbinders and it creates a really intricate background for you in one simple pass.
It is an extendable die and so has no cutting edge around the outside of the pattern and once it has been cut it still needs to be hand cut some more to release all the beauty of the pattern.
The video will show you exactly what I mean and then all will become clear if you are not used to this type of die.
Not all of them will cut ... some will emboss and now some will deboss and add extra pattern to your designs.
The flowers on this card are from Wild Orchid Crafts and they have been sparkle with Glamour Dust.
The Diamante is from Want2Scrap and I have used just a tiny piece to decorate the sentiment.
So over the next few weeks I will try to show you how I use these dies and the difference in the edges and hope fully it will help you to see what you can do with them as you work.
Grab a cuppa and a biscuit or two ... or three ... and enjoy the video
More tomorrow ...
