Dies to the rescue

Hi Everyone :)

It's Faye here today, sharing something a little different.

Picture this...

It's 4.30 in the afternoon and you're feeling smug, as, your Brother and Sister-in-Law's Wedding Anniversary is coming up, and you still have loads of time left to make a card. Slowly, it dawns on you that the week or so you had to delay making it, because you really struggle with Anniversary cards play with, has gone, the Anniversary is tomorrow, and the last post goes in one hour.

OMG. Actually. I think I might say that again. OMG! There may have been a few other words in there too. I'll leave that to your imagination.

Tell me you haven't been there? Because, it's not the first time I've been caught out with Anniversary cards. Did I mention how much I dislike making Anniversary cards? I'm not overly keen on Wedding cards either, but, I manage to get into the spirit of that more easily.

Anyhoo. What to do. I have an hour. Ok, scrub that, because I've been running around the house swearing for twenty minutes. I have forty minutes. What to do? I reach for my MFT Dies, is what I do. I have a soft spot for My Favourite Things, and as I said, it's not the first time I've been caught like this... I'm a Dies To The Rescue Veteran.

In this instance, I've layered some Vellum, which I embossed with hearts and distressed, onto a card blank. Then I layered the Die-Namics Layered Heart, with more distressing, vellum and twine, to make a focal point.

On other occasions, the card has been similar, but I have used Die-Namics Heart Stax, or Die-Namics Heart Doily and then layered Die-Namics Boy Meets Girl on top, for something a little quirky and fun. Of course, if hearts are your thing, don't forget about Die-Namics Pierced Heart Stax and Die-Namics Stitchable Heart Stax!

Oooof, that's a lot of scrummy product right there. Now, before you flick my ear for tempting you with all these goodies, you know there's 15% off, across the whole Store this weekend, right? New La-La Land Dies and Stamps are now in stock, along with all the lovely new Cheery Lynn Dies, Pion Design Vintage Wedding and Colour Palette Papers, and Memory Box Stencils and Dies. Ooopsy. Did I say that out loud?!

Have a great day!
