Fun with the Canadian Collection Die Set

Canadian Border Card in lilac

I thought I would have a bit of a play around with Canadian Collection of dies by Sue Wilson and here is what I came up with.

Canadian Border Card in lilac

First I cut out the Canadian Collection – Background in some coconut white foundation card and cut it up into 6 lots of 4 squares which I then mounted onto some lilac card. Next I cut the Canadian Collection – Corner, Border & Tag out 4 times in some lilac foundation card, adhered it onto the lilac background and mitred at the corners. The whole thing was then put on to a matt of coconut white. I used the montreal die to cut out a matt for the center tag and stamped a sentiment onto the coconut white card. Perfect Peony Open Petals and Perfect Peony Complete Petals were used along with the Delicate Fronds die to finish off the card. The finished card measures 6″ by 7 3/4″.

Mixing it up

First of all can I say welcome to all the people who have come to my blog from the SET craft Facebook page, its great to have you here šŸ™‚

Today I have a card for you that shows you can use all those images from the CDs you have tucked away along with your brand new dies. I printed out a picture from one of my Humphries Corner CDs and used the Grace frame die to cut out the image. I used background paper and sentiments also printed from the CD to make up the card too. The Brighter Days die made a great frame for the central image, backed with some of the same backing paper. I finished off by cutting the “new baby” sentiment to fit onto the Pierced Flag die and placed stick on pearls in the corner.
