A Die with Many Uses

Hello friends! 
I am sharing a simple card with an embossed sentiment from this die.
The die set that I am talking about is

After today's  post, I hope that you will find this die set sew amazing.
For die set like this, you can simply use it in a few creative ways.

For the hoop, you can treat it like a circle die with an opening. You can add flowers where the opening is. You can simply use the circle frame and stamped images around or inside it.

Of course, you can use it as is, that is creating a Embroidery Hoop.

you are amazing
I stamped one of the images from Embroidered Blooms 
and created a simple background.

The stamping was super easy.  I decided to add the extra dies in the foreground, so I did. After that,
I realized I needed to run sentiment "you are sew amazing"  and the paper through the die cut machine!

That was what I did. You see the images from the dies are just slightly flat...
In hindsight, I should have glued the dies as the last step. Oh well. no harm done.


I did, however, redeem myself by added droplets of Liquid Pearl, so the card is not completely flat. 
As you can see, I only took one of the elements from each die and stamp set.
Imagine the possibilities!

Love the combo of the stamp set and the dies. It's amazing how you manage to get so much from these sets. Those "Virginia touches" are always a delight.

Very pretty Virginia, love it. (At least it didn't hurt anything doing the sentiment after the die cut images were mounted.) Really lovely.
