Die cut cards

Been back on the die cutting today.  The card below is the memory box die which I used recently and is gorgeous. I gathered up the tails of the bow with a running stitch to create the gathered effect.


This next one is Spellbinders cogs, TH rosette and a Martha Stewart border punch.  I think this is the first white card I've ever made.

Two very different but equally stylish cards. I love cogs, and I love the 'cow parsley'type shapes.

LOVE those flowers, Carol - I almost got that one myself but decided against it because I'd probably only use it once, lol. It's a lovely card and the ruched ribbon is the perfect touch. Lovely xxx

Two fab cards, the all white one is very effective !! It's the shadows that have the stunning effect on all white cards !

Fantastic cards, especially like the paper cogs, what a unique idea.
Thanks for sharing Ü

Two beautiful, but very different, cards Carol. I love how you have used and coloured those flowers on the first one and the second one is unusual to see cogs in white. But it works so well!
Brilliant!
Hugs, Neet xx
