Learn to Pause by Jowilna Nolte


Welcome to another blog post with a quick die-cut card. Now that the festive season is well underway and most of the festive crafting is done, I took the opportunity to create some quick cards for the new year, birthdays and just general cards for the special people around me.
For this card I used the lovely Rose and Lacy die cut. I combined the two together to make a framed rose card and just love the way it turned out.

I used the Damask Delight Paper pad to create with for a fresh colour combination.

The rose fits perfectly inside the border around the inside circle when using the die-cut - so you get two pieces that you can use - love the multitasking aspect of it.

The grey frame is backed with the beautiful lime green circle paper - plain with some colour

Step 1 - cut the rose using your quick release paper and rose die.

step 2 - cut the lacy 8 die out of grey patterned paper and remove the circle part for a second card, keep the frame part for this card.

step 3 - Cut a piece of patterned paper from the Damask paper pad to back the frame part with. I cut mine into a square that sits behind the frame. Adhere the frame to the patterned paper and then adhere it to the folded card front.

step 4 - Adhere the rose die cut at an angle inside the frame.

step 5 - Adhere a strip of striped paper from your paper pad to the bottom portion of your card. Stamp a sentiment onto a scrap piece of paper and adhere to the strip at the bottom. Add machine sewing around the bottom portion of your card. Add embellishments to finish off your card.

A quick and easy die-cut combination for a striking card. Don't be afraid to use different collection dies from different releases together to create something truly beautiful.
