- I started my card by coloring my Besties image 726 with copic markers. Then I cut her out using the Vaudeville Frame by Memory Box. This is a base frame that has many other overlays that are awesome to use. I highly recommend that you check them out.
- Then I cut the overlay which is the Debutane Frame from Memory box out of dark pink. This is a highly detailed die and you might need to run it through your die cut machine a couple of times. It's a good idea to tape it to your paper so it won't shift.
- Glue the detailed frame to the first frame.
- Doesn't this have such a cool look? You could stop here and have an awesome looking card, but I wanted more.
- Die cut the Macarena Corner. This is a wonderful die that I use a lot.
- Cut the Elegant scrollworks die. When I bought this I wasn't sure how I was going to use it, but it turns out it is a very fun die.
- Once all my dies were cut, I embossed the light pink paper and highlighted it with Distress Ink.
- Then I added my ribbon and dies. You will notice I choose to have parts of the dies sticking out because I did not want to overpower the image.
- Finally, I added the flowers from Wild Orchid and the Peacock Feather die. In total, I used 5 dies on this card. I had another one I wanted to use, but thought it was too much. When you are thinking about how to use your dies, remember that you can use just parts of them.
So get out there and use them. They are so much fun.
