I'm on a roll today...two posts in one day...doesn't happen very often but when I received these beautiful new dies through the post I just had to forget all the housework that needs doing today and have a play.
It didn't take me very long to sniff out these new dies from Memory box. There are quite a lot of designs and can be bought from either Joanna Sheen, Craftsulove, or Oyster stamps.
Here I've combined the Amira Flourish and the Essex label. I think they work perfectly together.
They are so delicate I thought may have problems in getting a clean die cut, but I got a perfect result with my Big Shot.
As the design of the flourish is so detailed I decided not to go for a full background. I just randomly stamped a Papertrey damask stamp several times in the centre of the card. I think an all over background would have swallowed up the lovely design of the flourish die. One of the damask designs didn't stamp very well and is more grey than black but I think this adds a bit more dimension.
I love these dies...I've now ordered the snowflake die and I've got a lot more on my wish list!
