SB Diamond Flourish Pocket Tutorial

Hello friends, it is lovely having you join me today for a Spellbinders Tutorial using one of the gorgeous new Rouge Royale Deux Collection by Stacey Caron.  

Totally elegant and romantic, this is a one piece die set with a beautiful intricate flourish design and embossed diamond background to place pearls and other small accents

You can bring your projects to the next level with Stacey's Rouge Royale Deux Collection. This die has so much potential - it can be a Pocket Card, as I have done, I can see it used on Wedding Invitations, or any invitation for that matter, with it's ornate design - there is no limit to the possabilities.
