Never Forget …

SSC274 SPLIT IN TWO

When searching for a die in one of my drawers I came across two small decorative dies that I haven’t used for a long time. Both have a slight oriental feel to them. I can’t remember who the manufacturer is, sorry. Using some papers gifted to me recently I cut some and using a landscape orientation, I added them to the card front with the split as per the sketch. After die cutting the small circle I added it to a slightly larger white circle and then with foam tape added it to the card front. I cut a small heart out of a scrap sparkly piece and I stamped the sentiment onto a black strip and heat embossed it. The sentiment comes from a newish set by MFT called Friends like you. These are all fairly long sentiments and are good for slimline cards. I chose one of the shorter ones for this card. After adding the sentiment I tucked the heart slightly underneath then I added some tiny gems on the printed dots that were part of the pattern on the top piece. This will probably go to a friend who is struggling a bit at the moment. She needs a paper hug as I can’t give her a real one. Even without Covid it would be hard as she lives in another country.

  1. Beautiful card and sentiment. I like that you changed the orientation of the sketch and that you found that great die. The little heart tucked into the sentiment strip works.

  2. Thanks Gayle – I enjoyed making this one and I just experimented with those dies and they fit perfectly into the MFT slimline circle die so I’m using them again later today.

  4. I’m so happy you like it and I’ve just found another way to use those dies so it was good to pull them out of my stash.
