Die’sire Fancy Edge’ables™

Hello everyone! Have you seen the Die’sire Fancy Edge’ables™ cutting dies by Crafter’s Companion?

These little 5 1/4″ long border cutting dies are so versatile and make creating amazing projects easy. This easel card uses the Die’sire Fancy Edge’ables Butterfly Dreams cutting die. I simply cut two borders from white cardstock and one from black. The butterflies give the card dimension when you pull the wings forward.

These dies have an embossing feature and I found using the Texture Accessory Silicone Rubber  Embossing Mat was necessary to bring the embossing forward. (For more on this check out the product page for Die’sire Fancy Edge’ables Butterfly Dreams and click on the image for instructions).

I used the Die’sire Fancy Edge’ables Jardin cutting die to make this frame.

It was very easy to do. I die cute four Die’sire Fancy Edge’ables Jardin borders from navy blue Lapis Lazuli Glimmer Paper and then glued the border pieces to Silver Linen Specialty Paper and cut around them, leaving a 1/16″ border.

After that I used Sticky Tape to mount the borders around a rectangle of Silver Linen Specialty Paper and cut off the top and bottom corners, leaving the bottom straight edge. 

I made a stand by scoring the edge of a 2 1/2″x 4 1/2″ rectangle and then making a diagonal cut as shown.

And then I used Sticky Tape to secure the stand to the back of the frame.

I embellished the front with a photo mat made from Indigo Lace Paper, Silver Ribbon, Royal Blue Flowers and White Jewel Dazzles™ Stickers.

That’s all for today. If spring hasn’t reached you yet, just think of the rain and snow as an excuse to stay indoors and make something pretty. Happy crafting.
