Purple and White card
I bought these Go Kreate frilly square dies some time ago and this is the first time I have used them. I have to say, they didn't quite cut completely through, I had to take scissors to a couple of places. Next time, I will try an extra shim in the Big shot sandwich. The only other ones I have used from this range are the large plain and scalloped ovals and I had no problems with them.
The paper is from an old scrap pad I found while sorting stash and is matted onto some Bazzill Plum (sadly a discontinued colour). The punched strip is done with an EK Success border punch and I added some crochet lace to the unpunched edge. A flower - also found whilst stash-sorting! - and some pearls almost complete the card. Then I did the thing which terrifies me the most - stamping the sentiment directly on the card. I did have my tag dies ready in case I messed up the stamping and needed to do a cover up, but luckily it came out OK!
