"Using a Striplet Die"

HAPPY EASTER everyone, hope you have all had a wonderful time.  Weather here has been good if a little chilly, we have seen the sun that`s the main thing!!!
Thank you  for popping by, whether you are a regular visitor or just looking in to see what I get up to. If you have liked the things I do and hope to see you again soon
I would like to welcome my latest follower:- Debbie Arriff better known as Debs, thank you for deciding to join me on my Blogging journey delighted to have you on board.
We had a very busy week last week, today has not been much better.  Being busy today was of my own making.  Up very early, went non-stop till 2pm.  Oh! I did stop for lunch and a quick chat with Hazel.  Ranch House sparkling, washing up to date, all ironed and put away apart from a few bits still on the "whirrly" mostly towels that the edges were not quite dry.
My card today is one I made when I eventually opened the packet my Sue Wilson Striplet Die was in.  I had it ages and never managed to get round to opening it.  I have another couple that are still in their packet I might get round to them this week we will see. 
Anyway here is the card I did get made:-

Base card approx 8 x 8 cut from A3 Papermill Card Stock
Simple Matting & Layering of Purple and White Papermill Card
I cut the Striplet Die 3 times for the main piece
SB Classic Circle and SB Butterfly
Some punched flowers, Die cut Swirls and a few Pearls
No Greeting as yet, will pop it in the box for future use

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling in I really appreciate it
Till next time

  8. What a gorgeous card with all those fancy die cuts. I'm glad you finally opened that striplet die so you could show us your lovely make with it.

  9. Hi Patricia
    At last, you have stripletted! We all succumb in the end. I haven't finished with mine. Think its going to go blunt hahaha!
    I love PMD purple card. Its so rich. I love the addition of the butterflies and twirls and flowers. Superdoopah!
    If you cut another the same as the top layer out of 300gsm, it makes a great embossing mask.
    Enjoy playing.

  31. This is just a magnificent card....lovely to the

  32. Elegant & impressive. I enlarged to see 'striplets' and where they might join (as I think of a striplet!). My eyes did not see a join, and it looks like a lacey card front die to me. Whatever - it's beautiful, and the burgundy background made the white lace pop splendidly. Love the popped out butterfly and the tiny flowers trimming. TFS & Hugs
