Welcome back

I have just received the new Border Basics die set from Heartfelt Creations along with their new fold out cards and I think the dies are beautiful and will add a new dimension to my paper crafting.  There are so many things you can do with them and here are my first efforts.

First up is a fold out card featuring paper from the Cut Mat Create Collection which is no longer available unfortunately,  However, I had a lot of fun with the papers and also adding the glitter to the flowers.

My next card:

With this card I ended up gluing the folds together to make a single fold card but it still came together well.  Here is the inside of the card.

For this next card I have used one of the inserts from the Flip Fold Albums – Insert B

This made a lovely pop up card and featured the border dies very nicely.

And finally here is a very simple but elegant card using the Classic Border Basics dies and a single rose from the Classic Rose set.
