Fun with Dies

Hey everyone!  Did you have a great World Card Making Day?

Mine was too much fun, mostly because it coincided with an annual get together with some of my favorite crafty people.  It was a card making candy haze!

This is actually the last card I created, but one of my favorites.

It features the Silver Linings dies from Ellen Hutson.  I love geometric dies because they afford so many possibilities.

For this card, I cut each of the sunburst dies (there are two that are mirror images) twice from five colors of cardstock.  I didn't use the entire die cut (these dies don't fully cut, but create a webbed piece that you can use as a whole or snip apart), I first cut down the dark red pieces to the shape circled here.

Then I snipped off portions from the other colors and pieced them over top.  Then the four quadrants were placed together to create the finished medallion.

The sentiment die is from Papertrey Ink and is three layers thick.

I just love how many different patterns and shapes and combinations you can create with these dies!

That's all for me today!  Thanks for stopping by!
