Yellow Ornament

Yellow Ornament CUHi friends!  Jeanne here today!  I've been playing around with backrgound dies more lately.  They're a big investment, certainly the more expensive dies, but you have to consider they are large enough to cover an A2 (4 1/4 x 5 1/2") size card, and have lots of versatility.  There are so many things you can do with a background die, other than the obvious cut and layer.  I like to deboss them to create a wonderful embossed look, or leave all the die cut pieces in place for a detailed lacy impression.   You can even make your own stencil with a background die!!! For my card today I wanted to create a contast in color so I removed only some of the die cut pieces. Yellow Ornament Dimension

I thought the card looked too busy with all the pieces punched out so I  cut it again leaving lots of the die cut pieces intact.  The "solid" areas" make a great backdrop for the ornament and floral sprig without them fading into the background.   Make sure you tape them in place on the back, or adhere them to your card base with some glue so they don't fall out!!   I like to add embellishments with adhesive foam tape for some dimension.
Yellow Ornament Bow

It's easy to make a simple seam binding  bow look fussy just by topping it with a second bow and a button or gem.
