Hi everyone, today I'm the designer at the Card A Day Blog and it's all about using your die cuts.
This challenge is always hard for me as I don't have that many dies because I use my Cricut for that.  I pulled them out and layed them on my desk and picked two to used for this challenge.  

I started by looking at my stamps and seeing what would fit relatively well in the second to the larges Label Three die.  I used the largest die to border the stamped image.   I stamped the image three times - once for the main image, yellow cardstock then green cardstock. I fussy cut the leaves and flower out then used adhesive on the leaves and pop up dots behind the flowers. 

Next came the border die.  I cut it out with my Cuttlebug, then ran it through again to emboss it.  I was very careful removing it from the die as I wanted to save the pieces for the inside corners.  I threaded some ribbon through the die cut and glued it to the back of the card layers. 

I added a few brown rhinestones to the flower image and a few cream rhinestones to the border.  I hope you enjoyed today's card.  Tomorrow Tina Campbell is the designer at the Card A Day Blog so stop back and see what she had in store for you. 

Thanks for stopping by.
