Using Negative Die Stem

A warm welcome and thank you for coming by to visit my blog and a big thanks to you if you have the time to leave a comment and/or join as a follower.  Please let me know you stopped by, so I can be sure and return the favor. 

Another quick card design.  
I very seldom use the negative die, not sure why I just don't think about putting it to good use. I first used the Spellbinders Matting Basic die and cut out the white card stock, then placed my Lavish Branch on it and die cut again.  I glued the layers of the flowers together and dotted them with the Viva Decor Gold.  For the Willow Dragonfly I coated the wings with the a Pearl Pen then after drying I dotted the wings with a Gold Pen.   

Materials:
Memory Box - Lavish Branch, Primula Blooms & Willow Dragonfly
Spellbinders 5 X 7 Matting Basics A
Viva Decor Gold & Pearl Pen

  1. Diane, your card is so pretty! I never think about using the negative cuts from dies either. Love this one and also that wonderful dragonfly. The Viva Decor gold on this is lovely.
