Unfortunately, my blood pressure has been a little high since yesterday evening, so I've been battling a slight headache since late yesterday. I did try to visit some of you but after reading several blogs my headache felt as though it was getting worse, so I'll get to those of you I haven't a bit later. However, I did want to get started on playing with some of my new "stuff" I bought at the show, so I got up this morning and began playing.
This is one of the sets of dies I purchased at the show. It is a line called GEO-Dies and the company that makes them is called Pop-Ups Etc.:
If you like the die, please visit http://www.geo-dies.com/.
I began working on a little card using the die just to get a feel for it. I'd almost completed it but couldn't quite get the idea from the back of my to the front on just how I wanted it completed... LOL! I know I'm going to cut-out either words or images for each side panel opening onto the card, and add a sentiment to the inside; however, I just don't know what words, images, or sentiments -- I don't know if it's going to be a birthday card, all occasion, thank you, etc. (?). I also have to finish the inside with Peel-Offs but I couldn't wait to come up with all of that as I wanted you to see an example of this die more. I love it!!!
Of course, as I've always said, I'm not really a great cardmaker and, therefore, I'm open to your suggestions (hint-hint). Anyway, here's the card using the die:
I made this into sort of a 3-fold card (I guess that's what it'd be called); I was trying to do something a bit different with it:
I'll show it to you again when I've added all the finishing touches to it, and I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot more I'll be doing using this die because I'm really liking it a lot; it's such fun!!!
Well, for now, that's it. But, for sure... I'll be seeing you soon!
