Virginia's Die Hard Series (Part 4)

Happy Canada Day!
I am sharing the last segment of "Virginia's Die Hard Series". 
  "Frame Cut Dies Paper Layering Daisy with Frame"

This die really is awesome on many levels since it has TWO parts--outer and inner die. 
I used "Partial Die Cut" technique for my project. I made two place cards with the flower and place card as one piece. DSC_0348 (5)  

I am sure you can find many "Partial Die Cut" You Tube videos if you are not familiar with it. With some planning, it is rather easy to do.

On the backside of the place card, I added an extra daisy, so the place card will look great from any angle. I am saving these for special entertaining occasions.

While I was at it, I made a few extra flowers for the table top decorations. I think these are perfect for doing craft project with children. All they need to do is add colors to the daisies with sprays or crayons, markers...watercolors.

To sum up this post, I have a group photo of all the projects in this Die Hard series.

Brilliant. Love those placecards...think the technique would be easily adapted to a card as well. So pretty and clever.
