Signature dies on cards

Here are some cards I've made using the Signature Dies that I  designed for Joanna Sheen..

For this one I've used the Dreamcatcher die, cutting it out twice - one with kraft card and one with white card and cut out lots of white feathers.  I inked the background first and then assembled the dreamcatcher. The lovely baby's cot is another die in the Signature range... I die cut it 3 times from kraft card using 2 for the cot and one for the chest of drawers. The cot has little pieces of pink felt and white card  sandwiched between the layers and I used all the bits that fall out of the die to make the drawers adding gems for the handles. 
I cut lots of the Signature Hydrangea flowers in various colours gluing them onto a piece of card ready to add to my card. Then I cut out 8 of the Signature Decorative lace corners (one of the designs in the set) and arranged them around the 8" card to form the lacy octagonal. The get the curved shape right I folded a piece of paper in half a few timed from the center (the same as when you fold paper to cut a snowflake).. I held the center point in the middle of the card  then penciled in the curve to match the lace.. and then cut, when unfolded it forms the perfect match to cut out the hydrangea covered card. I run the cut out shape to emboss for a bit of texture. I added a few faux stitches and used part of another embossing folder for the greeting.

This card uses the Signature Bella Lace die.  It is perfect for this style of card because it it a repeating pattern die which means  it can be cut as long as you require. All you have to do to get this look is to die cut each side of the 6" card equally and then using a ruler to mark, cut away the inner sides.  The Rose is from the Joanna Sheen Vintage flower stamps.

I will add more cards soon.  Thank you for visiting today :)
