Mother's Day and Thanks Cards using Craft Dies by Sue Wilson

Hello Bloggers!  Welcome back to my Blog on this lovely Saturday morning! Hope you've been having a great week!  I've got 2 fun cards to share with you today.

 First up, a Mother's Day Card for my DT make at Creative Expressions
This busy make was started by die-cutting with the lovely Creative Expressions Craft Dies by Sue Wilson: Australian Collection, Border, Corner and Tag Dies multiple times. I've used the border die to create the bottom see-through panel that also cuts through the back panel. I've cut and double layered another border set to place above, giving this card a lovely background. The center medallion was created by multi-layering the die-cut Corner cuts in Black and White cardstock along with this lovely Designer Paper. The Tag die was also used here for center then entire medallion is topped with a black button and bling. Sentiment is by JustRite Stamps, and cut with the CE/SW Pierce Flags Die. 

Stamps:   Just Rite Spring Wishes Vitage Labels and Nine
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black Archival Ink
Paper: Designer DP Stack, Black and White Cardstock
Techniques: Layering    JustRite Clear Spring Wishes Vintage Labels Eight and Nine Stamps CR-02121**FS!*
