One Die - Three Different Ways

Hello friends, welcome and thank you for stopping by. I hope you are enjoying your week.  I have been playing with the Happy Mail I received from from John Lockwood aka John Next Door -and I have to say - they are wonderful to work with.  Today I am sharing three cards created three different ways with the one die - I love to find more than one way to use something - how about you?!

Firstly I used the JOHN NEXT DOOR DIE Gerbera Collection -Lattice and die cut yellow card stock.  The centres have been sponged using Imagine Memento Ink in Rockmelon and white Want2Scrap Enamel Dots added to the centre of each flower.  Next it has been glued onto a teal card base, the same size.  The butterfly and sentiment are Kaisercraft Collectibles.

For the second card I used the JOHN NEXT DOOR DIE Gerbera Collection -Lattice die to emboss only  - this is done by placing the die face up, next the card stock, followed by the Tan Mat and Embossing Plate - such an effective way to use dies  The centres have been sponged using Imagine Memento Ink in Rockmelon and yellow Want2Scrap Faux Enamel Dots added to the centre of each flower.  Next it has been popped up onto a slightly larger white card base using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Craft Foam Tape. The butterfly and sentiment are Kaisercraft Collectibles.

For the third card I have used the negative dies from the first card using JOHN NEXT DOOR DIE Gerbera Collection -Lattice Once removed from the Die they have been glued onto teal card stock to recreate the lattice effect and popped up onto an embossed card front.  Next the card front has been layered onto a slightly larger pre-cut white card base using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Craft Foam Tape. Want2Scrap Enamel Dots and Baby Bling have been added to the centre of each flower. A double teal Seam Binding Bow has been glued to the left side of the card front.
